biss-pudong-patrick-horneThe British International School, Shanghai in Pudong is happy to announce that Patrick Horne will join the school as the new Principal to lead the school into its 10th year since foundation.

Patrick is eager to take up the challenge and continue to conduct the operation of the school to the same high standards and premium levels of education.

He comments: “The achievements of the children who have attended the British International School in Pudong are a testimony to their own efforts and also to those of the teachers and other adults they work with along the way.  BISS is clearly a place where students feel happy and safe, where they discover their passions and excel at them, and where they receive the foundation which will help them achieve even greater things in the future.”

“High academic standards are our priority. Learning at BISS is challenging and stimulating. There is a wide range of subjects throughout the curriculum and highly skilled, dedicated teachers for every class. It is a school where academic enjoyment is cultivated and developed to its fullest extent.”

Patrick has been teaching since 1990. Prior to joining BISS he was Associate Headteacher at Harrogate Grammar School, one of the leading schools in the UK, and was previously Deputy Headteacher at Jerudong International School in Brunei. He has experience in a wide range of schools and in raising academic standards for students of all ages and abilities.  Patrick also takes great pride in ensuring each school provides opportunities beyond the classroom such that all students can develop further values and skills beyond their academic pursuits. He is a passionate believer that high expectations for students can lead to outstanding and inspirational outcomes.

Patrick is a keen if limited sportsman, a career highlight being an international appearance representing Brunei at Australian Rules Football. He has coached students throughout his career, primarily in football and cricket. He finds the students are almost always more talented than him but that never spoils his enjoyment. 

The school community at BISS are just returning to the city after the holidays and will have the opportunity to meet their new Principal throughout the first days and weeks of term. He will also be actively involved in welcoming visitors to the school and engaging with the public at community events held at the school such as Bonfire Night in November and the school Open Day and 10th Anniversary celebrations in October.

The Principal welcomes your feedback and questions about the school by email principal@bisspudong.com
