Today we are in PINK!

Year 11 Cancer and Health Awareness Initiative
At YCIS, we believe it is vitally important for students to have the opportunity to ‘do good’ and support their local community. Alongside this, we also want to provide learning opportunities so that students are ‘educated’ about an issue that effects millions of lives across the world.
Options Afternoon – Year 9 & Year 11
In order to prepare and support our students for their pathways into the IGCSE and IB programmes of study and guide them in the right direction for their future career aspirations, we held an options afternoon on Wednesday 24th February in the Great Hall. Due to the current restrictions, this event was only for students; we would usually invite parents, instead we have shared the relevant information via the students through our curriculum booklets and other information. It was great to see all our Year 9 and Year 11 students attend this event.

On 1 Feb, several Year 8, and all Year 9-Year 11 YCIS Chongqing students competed in the United Kingdom Mathematical Trust (UKMT) – Intermediate Maths Challenge.

What is a Learning Conference?
Waiting for mum and dad to get home, worrying about what teachers might have said, would I be greeted with a smile or anger when they arrived home? Those were my feelings many years ago when I was at school. Thankfully times have changed.
