Shanghai Concord Bilingual School
About Shanghai Concord Bilingual School
Shanghai Concord Bilingual School is the first bilingual private school in Huangpu District. Shanghai Concord enjoys the full support of the Party Committee and the Huangpu District Government and adheres to the educational policies stipulated by the Huangpu District Education Bureau, but within an internationalised context.
The school is located in the Huangpu District in the heart of Shanghai, in one of the most thriving, international and cultural areas of the city.
It is our intention to provide an outstanding education for both local and international students, preparing them to be the leaders of tomorrow, confident and honest, socially engaged and creative.
Shanghai Concord Bilingual School first opened its doors to students in September 2017. The school is being developed in association with its prestigious sister school, Concord College (UK) a renowned international college whose academic excellence places it at the very top of the UK examination league tables. Concord College (UK) is lending its considerable experience and expertise in support of this new venture.
The aim of Shanghai Concord is to create a place of learning where students can flourish in a supportive atmosphere of harmony, trust and decency, whilst committed to striving for academic excellence at every level.
Initially the college recruited students in Grade 6 (age 11) and Grade 10 (age 15) and will grow each year to eventually include all years from 6 to 12 (age 11 to 18).
In September 2018 the School will also be opening a Primary Department and is aiming to recruit students into Grades 1 and 2 in the first instance. The courses offered will incorporate the traditional Chinese curriculum in a bilingual environment, whilst also offering students the chance to experience a more intense exposure to English through a varied and stimulating extension programme.
The Shanghai Concord School Management Team is comprised of Mr. Xie Yingping, former Principal of the High School affiliated to Fudan University, and a leading light in the field of education in Shanghai; Mrs. Gail Denham, former Head of Lower School at Concord College UK, who as British Executive Principal will ensure Shanghai Concord School achieves the same level of educational excellence as Concord College UK and Mrs Joy Pan, Chinese Vice Principal. Together they have recruited outstanding academic staff who seek to strive for academic excellence and who will complement the students’ regional, cultural and national identity with an international perspective.
Shanghai Concord is temporarily located in a fully renovated middle school building in Runan Street. The school is presently a day school, but with plans to introduce boarding for Middle and High school students in the future.
All academic staff are expected to teach to the highest possible professional standards and support and uphold the ethos, aims and objectives of the School. All teachers are expected to familiarise themselves with, and adhere to, the many and various policies and systems by which the School is managed and students cared for.
