HD Shanghai opened in August 2015 and is located in the City’s Songjiang District, widely regarded as the cultural heart of Shanghai. Work is currently underway on the second phase of development, which will introduce specialist upper-secondary teaching spaces and facilities, as well as boarding houses. The layout of HD Shanghai is informed by the desire to deliver an innovative and contemporary bilingual curriculum in line with the school’s vision and values.

The school is committed to fostering genuinely bilingual and bicultural pupils, enabling them to gain competency in Mandarin and English, and preparing them for life in an increasingly interconnected world. Although the international element of the curriculum is based on that of Hurtwood House UK, HD Shanghai’s secondary section also prepares students for entry into US universities.

All of HD Shanghai’s indoor facilities are equipped with efficient air purification systems. Indeed, the School’s state of the art Anti-Pollution Dome is the first air purifying sports facility in South East China.

Facilities include:

  • Bilingual library
  • Multifunctional theatre
  • Science labs
  • Music and drama classrooms
  • Individual music practice rooms
  • Art and Design studios
  • Mac lab
  • Tennis courts, football pitches and basketball courts.
  • 400-metre athletics track and a golf driving range
  • Indoor anti-pollution dome
