The scene was very lively.

Part 1: International Admission Officer Leo 分享《6 tips on how to GET language friendly

Leo is responsible for the recruitment of international students. As an international school with students from all over the world, Adcott hopes that children can fully immerse themselves in the blending of Chinese and Western cultures in English.


He is proficient in Italian, French, English, Spanish and Chinese, and he believes that "love Passion" is an essential element of language learning. Because he loves China, it takes him less than two years of study to have a normal dialogue with the Chinese people, and the children like to tease him.

Part 2: Board of Trustee MemberHu Jing

Mr. Hu Jing has been engaged in international education for more than 20 years. From the establishment of Yali Education to the introduction of foreign educational resources, to the listing of A-share international schools, his understanding of education, his expectations for students and the analysis of the curriculum system are no less than those of any principal who has worked hard for many years.


1) Western education and Chinese traditional culture are blended, not antagonistic.

Adcote School decided to set up a branch campus in Shanghai. It is precisely because in the current upsurge of international schools, few schools can really bring students a better learning system, from the traditional college entrance examination to the "foreign college entrance examination". It is just a change of soup and dress. The essence of cultivating students'independent innovation in western education has not been brought into play.

On the contrary, there are few students who really understand Chinese traditional culture even though they are fluent in English and open-minded. They are blind and confused in their self-perception. They can not be proud of being Chinese from the bottom of their hearts. Based on this, on the basis of retaining the original British education management model and teachers'team, Shanghai Adcote School pays more attention to the "inheritance" of the educational concept, and truly creates an "indigenous, world-oriented" International Campus for Chinese students.



2) Cultivating spiritual aristocracy and strong physique

Sports is by no means an indispensable "associate subject" in Western education. Many excellent universities prefer candidates with athletic backgrounds. Because the students who insist on participating in sports activities and even in competitions have more endurance and perseverance, are good at teamwork, and have natural motivation and desire for competition. They can also quickly adjust their mentality and learn lessons after losing the competition.


The cultivation of these qualities is indispensable for future talents.

Therefore, Mr. Hu Jing believes that it is more important to cultivate students'stable and independent personality, to be a real spiritual aristocrat with a mentality of "hard-working, strong, east-west, north-south wind", than to cultivate a batch of ambiguous examination machines. In Adcott School, Extra Curricular quality development activities involve in various fields, from sports, art to science and public welfare. We must ensure that students play their own advantages in different quality development, explore potential interests and hobbies, enrich their spirit, strengthen their body and mind, and free their soul.



Part 3: Adcote School Student Ambassador William

William, the 11-year-old head of the school, came to the Myddelton Campus of Adcott School a year ago to study on the ocean. He is a very popular "King of Population" on the campus and was appointed Student Ambassador by the school.


As a humorous teenager, William praised the school's colorful extracurricular outreach activities. Learning through Outdoors is an educational concept that Adcote School always upholds. Through holding full-day outdoor activities every two weeks and outdoor activities such as Adventure Day every Saturday, the training objectives of students of different ages are carefully planned.

Shanghai Campus was chosen in Sheshan because of its geographical advantages. It is also called "Shanghai Backyard Garden". The new site of the school is located at the foot of Xisheshan Mountain, adjacent to Sheshan National Forest Park, a 4A-level scenic spot in neighboring countries, with beautiful mountain body, lush trees and abundant animal and plant resources. At the same time, close to the "Shanghai Longjing" Tea Garden, back to the Notre Dame Cathedral and Sheshan Observatory, we can foresee that there will be a lot of opportunities for students to get close contact with nature in Sheshan in the future.
