 About Shanghai United International School - Pudong Campus

Shanghai United International School Pudong Campus

Address: No. 48 Xueye Road, Pudong District, Shanghai

SUIS Pudong is a member of the largest educational not-for-profit organization (Xiehe) in Shanghai. The campus accommodates two separate schools, 'International' and one that uses a version of the Chinese National Curriculum called 'Premier'. We seek qualified and experienced teachers to join us in maintaining our excellent reputation for international education here in China.

The International School uses the same curriculum in a whole-through 'East meets West' primary and secondary programme on the same campus. In 2017 at IGCSE, SUIS Pudong students obtained A*-C grades in 98% of all exams. In the previous year, we achieved very good IGCSE results in Shanghai gaining 100% A*-C and 78% A*-A grades - each student typically takes eight subjects. Last year, Primary achieved outstanding Cambridge Checkpoint results in English, Maths and Science. In our first year of AS Level, students gained 64% of all grades in the top two tiers with one student awarded the 'Highest Score in China' in Computer Science. Our first graduating cohort, have received offers from the top universities in the world. If you are passionate about education and getting the best out of every child you teach then we are very interested in you applying to us. 

Our school adopts the National Curriculum for England (NCfE) throughout as its foundation in preparation for pupils to be admitted to the best universities in the world. This ensures our students gain a consistent education, while transition from Primary and Secondary is excellent. At Secondary School, students will take IGCSE and A Levels to complete their educational pathway. 

The International Primary School (ages 5-11) is currently well established with approximately 425 pupils while the Secondary is a growing and thriving school with around 250 students (aged 11-18) starting from August 2018. Both schools have earned many awards and achievements. Our Primary students came first in Asia and in the top ten in the world, in Athletics and the World Education Games respectively - the largest online competitions of their type on earth. All students are gifted and talented and admission to the school is highly competitive. Given the strong demand for places, we have to reject more than 600 student applications every year. English, Chinese and Spanish (Secondary) are studied with classes arranged for first and additional language speakers separately in each, thereby demonstrating our strong commitment to educating our students in the world's three foremost languages spoken by the majority of people on the planet.

Our school community is renowned for its creative and nurturing approach. Both Primary and Secondary school productions were written and performed by our students and the musical score composed by our teachers. This is a cultural tradition we are proud of and aim to continue.
