Welcome Message from the Principal:




Welcome to Concordia International School Ningbo (CISN), a vibrant and nurturing community where we are dedicated to fostering an environment of inquiry, innovation, and inclusivity. As the principal of this wonderful school, I am both honored and excited to be a part of your child's educational journey.


At CISN, we are proud to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP), a curriculum framework that encourages students to become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. Our curriculum is designed to build a strong foundation of academic excellence while also nurturing the development of the whole child—socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.


Our school is more than just a place of learning; it is a community where students are encouraged to explore their interests and talents, develop their understanding of the world, and take action to make it a better place. We believe in the importance of cultivating a culture of respect, empathy, and curiosity, where every student feels valued and empowered to achieve their full potential.


The aims of our school are clear and ambitious:

- To provide an engaging and challenging learning environment that encourages critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving skills.

- To foster an atmosphere of international-mindedness, where students appreciate and celebrate cultural diversity and global citizenship.

- To encourage active participation in the local and global community, promoting a sense of responsibility and a desire to contribute positively to society.

- To support the well-being of every member of our school community, ensuring a safe, supportive, and inclusive environment for all.


As we embark on this exciting educational journey together, I am committed to ensuring that Concordia International School Ningbo continues to provide a rich and rewarding learning experience for every student. I look forward to partnering with you, our dedicated staff, and our wider school community to achieve these aims.


Thank you for choosing CISN. Together, we will inspire a love of learning, a passion for exploration, and a dedication to making a meaningful impact in the world.


Warmest regards,


Ian Barnes
