The British International School Shanghai, Pudong will change its name to Nord Anglia International School Shanghai, Pudong (NAIS Pudong)

The British International School Shanghai, Pudong is delighted to announce that from 24 August 2015 our school will be known as Nord Anglia International School Shanghai, Pudong (NAIS Pudong).

A New Name
From August 2015, our name will be Nord Anglia International School Shanghai, Pudong (NAIS Pudong).
We may have a new name, but we are not new in town. Over the past 13 years, The British International School Shanghai, Pudong has educated thousands of children, with many of our students going on to prestigious universities and successful careers. We are so proud of our past and present students.
We have now reached the next stage of our development in Shanghai and feel that the time is right to change our name to better capture our identity as a truly global school. We have always prided ourselves on being a contemporary school and offering your children exceptional learning opportunities. As a modern international school, our foundations are not based on tradition, but rather on offering the best of the English National Curriculum, delivered by highly trained, innovative teachers to an internationally diverse student body of almost 60 different nationalities. We have a growing number of exciting opportunities available to our students through Nord Anglia Education.

We believe our new name is a true reflection of who we are.

An Improved Offer
A change in name must be accompanied by real changes for your children in and out of the classroom.
Being known as NAIS Pudong is an expression of our commitment to helping our students grow into global citizens, ready for success in today’s increasingly interconnected world.
Our change of name better embodies the opportunities available to our students through Nord Anglia Education. These include:
•Global Campus – students from across the word connect, collaborate and learn from each other every day, and participate in exciting adventures through the global campus worldwide
•The Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme – offering our students the finest performing arts education
•Global Orchestra – an enviable opportunity for our young musicians and singers to join with Nord Anglia Education students from around the world in an annual international workshop and performance
•Excellent Teachers – thanks to the opportunities offered by Nord Anglia Education, including global mobility and centralised, up-to-date training
As NAIS Pudong, we will continue to do what we do best. Our students will continue to be offered the best of the English National Curriculum, with a focus on meeting the individual needs of our diverse student body. From August 2015, we will have an enhanced beyond-the-classroom programme, including a diverse offering of afterschool activities and a comprehensive sports programme.
We look forward to making this change with our student and parent body and assure you, we will remain an open, inclusive and globally focused family school.
