What the school says

"At BISS Puxi, we're dedicated to shaping a generation of successful, creative, and resilient global citizens – a generation that will change our world for the better. We go beyond traditional education, motivating our students to achieve the best academic results and to attend the top universities in the world.

"For over 15 years, our high-scoring students have gone on to attend the top universities in the world. Our highly trained teachers will make sure every moment of your child's education counts by supporting and challenging them through their learning journey. No two children learn the same way, which is why we'll work with your child to see how they learn best and inspire them to grow and succeed through their personalised education."

"Our Early Years curriculum (Pre-Nursery, Nursery and Reception) offers a child-centred, holistic approach to learning and follows the English Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework."

Primary: ages five to 11

"Our Primary curriculum follows the framework of the National Curriculum for England, adapted to meet the needs of the international community through the International Primary Curriculum (IPC)."

Lower secondary: ages 11 to 14

"Students are beginning to form opinions on future courses of study and choose their favourite courses, ready to study for IGCSE exams."

IGCSE: ages 14 to 16

"In many countries, it's the last two years of compulsory school and a defining moment as your child makes the academic choices that will give them access to top universities."

IBDP: ages 16 to 18

"IBDP is widely regarded as the best pre-university course. For those seeking a place at the world's top universities, our IB programme is one of the finest in China."

From the parents

"After transferring our son from a local school to BISS Puxi for a year, I can honestly say it's the best decision we ever made. He is much happier and always loves sharing his daily activities with us. Also, I would highly recommend the extra-curricular activities the school has to offer."
