【About the School】
Our weekend school was started by an Oxford educated British schoolteacher who has lived in Shanghai since 2008. He started teaching privately at the weekends in 2013, teaching in small groups in privately rented classrooms. He was joined by three partners in the summer of 2014. There are currently more than 100 teachers and staff and the school has a presence in Australia, China, the UK, and the USA. The school does not advertise and is majority owned by partners, most of who teach part-time and full-time. The school has grown almost entirely by word of mouth – the students' parents like our work because our teachers not only care about the progress of the children in their classes but because progress has been reliably consistent.

【Students and Parents】
Our students attend local and international schools and range in grades from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Their parents are primarily highly educated business professionals and intellectual elites who expect their children – not just to meet – but to exceed the academic expectations at the best international schools in Shanghai. The vast majority of our parents plan to send their children to rigorous, private middle schools and high schools abroad.
