Lucas has attended the British School since it's 2007 opening here in Nanjing, from Year 1 to year 6. We have been happy with the school from the first day, but it has improved tremendously under the direction of Matthew Shephard. BSN provides a safe, positive and structured environment for all the children, creating an atmosphere where students are encouraged to be creative, engaged and responsible students. The administrative staff, teaching staff, and support staff are all, without exception wonderful. You can see as a parent that the staff truly enjoy and appreciate children, which brings out the best in the children and the school as a whole. We have looked at many other international schools in Shanghai and Spain and found nothing that compares to the level of education provided by the British School of Nanjing. One of our main regrets in leaving China is leaving the school.
