‘To strive for Excellence in
all we do and in all that we


Chairman’s Welcome

Concord College is my Alma Mater. In 1998, being part of one of the first groups of overseas students who went to a British high school, I arrived in Britain with great excitement, expectation, and yet with a great sense of uncertainty.

At Concord, we mixed with students who came from over forty different countries and some of the current students at Concord are now the sons and daughters of those who have previously studied at Concord. It is this kind of cultural inheritance which gives Concord its unique and special feel. I am so grateful to have experienced a school with such a close community that I am willing to share my own experience. In the past decade, more than a hundred students whom I have recommended to Concord have gone on to their dream university and have found the career path which suits them best. I cannot help but feel that education of this type can indeed change people’s lives and this provided the incentive for me to work with Concord College to set up an internationalised school in Shanghai which shares the same values as Concord College but also incorporates Chinese traditions.

In recognition of my Alma Mater, I named this school Shanghai Concord Bilingual School (SCBS). I intend for this school to educate students in line with our motto: ‘To strive for excellence in all we do and in all that we are.’ The two schools are now sister schools and Concord College is committed to assisting its comrade in achieving top academic standards! The mission of Shanghai Concord is to educate students into people who understand Chinese culture and at the same time have a global perspective so that they can contribute fully to the development of our nation!

I truly believe that Shanghai Concord Bilingual School will nurture its students to become excellent in every aspect of their lives in the future!

It is also the role of the Directors to take financial oversight and to provide expertise and guidance that might otherwise not be available to the Principal.
