International STEAM Day
The growing awareness around the importance of STEAM is a reflection of our constantly changing world. With new technologies released every day, it is important to encourage students to become well versed in the fields of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics.

Now in Year 12, Jeongmin (Julie) Son, was characterised by CIE as being Top in the World for her result in IGCSE First Language Korean, a truly remarkable feat. Jeongmin and her family have been invited to attend the ‘Outstanding Cambridge Learner Award’ at a ceremony in Shenzhen on Tuesday 30th November.

The Future for YCIS Chongqing
This past Saturday, the doors of our wonderful new building were opened to provide parents with an opportunity to look at the new learning environment that has been created for our students. We had over 120 parents register for the event and despite a cold and rainy day, we thank those who were able to attend. Due to the numbers of parents who attended and mindful of supporting parents’ language needs, the groups of parents were toured around by the schools Senior Leadership Team and Support Staff.
Going Wild in Chongqing
Due to the current restrictions, we have been unable to provide a ‘camp’ experience for our students, as we know, camps are a great opportunity for children to discover new things and learn from a different perspective outside of the classroom. So instead of the students going on camp, we brought the camp to them as we continue to look for opportunities to support the development of new interests and new skills.

YCIS Chongqing Celebrates the Mid- Autumn Festival
At YCIS Chongqing we are always looking for opportunities to celebrate traditional Chinese festivals in a unique way, while still maintaining the importance of these events within our calendar. This year our students have showcased their respect and recognition of Chinese culture as well as their good wishes to the people they miss and love, through creative designs and artwork throughout the campus.
Let’s Go for it
A bright and sunny day welcomed the YCIS Chongqing students for their first day of the new academic year. As the children walked through the school gates, new and familiar faces were greeted by our teachers and leaders. As the children said their goodbyes, it was easy to tell who were the most anxious… the parents, but there was no need to worry as the students settled into their new routines quickly and easily.
Historic IGCSE Students
Last year saw some wonderful IGCSE results, but this year our students have achieved even more! Congratulations to our Year 11 students on achieving some the best results YCIS Chongqing has seen in its history. These results put us amongst some of the best International schools in the world, especially when you consider the inclusive nature of our school and the fact our students sat examinations unlike many other countries.
