Principal's Message


Virtue leads to perfection; 

Science leads to truth; 

Specialty leads to beauty. 

Adcote School (Shanghai), originated from England and rooted in China, is located in Songjiang, the root of Shanghai, prospering with a merged strength from western and eastern education, featuring the modern culture of Shanghai, enlightened, sagacious, graceful and modest, opening to diversified cultures and pursuing excellence While Chinese education would emphasize fundamental knowledge, western education would rather foster individual development. Then, it is our mission to cultivate the spirits of inheritance, innovation, independence and leadership in our students, by integrating the superiority and essence from both Chinese and western education philosophy.

As Chief principal of a new school, I often encounter a question: what does "Adcote" mean?

——It is actually the Chinese translation of Adcote. Whereas Adcote School (Shanghai), with its unique merits and strengths, is endowed with rich cultural connotations : the pursuit of virtue via moral education, the pursuit of truth via sciences, and the pursuit of beauty via arts and humanities, which embodies the essence of education: truth, goodness and beauty.

Adcote School (Shanghai) belongs to every student, teacher and parent. We are not only the inheritors of a prestigious British independent school with over one hundred years of nobility, but also the witness, pioneer and founder of a successful Chinese school, bound to prosper for hundreds of years in the future.

As the saying goes, “Good wind sets sail.” With our heart embracing the sun, we are splitting waves and singing voyage!
