Chinese Independent School of Tower Hamlets
CISTH is presently staffed by twenty-six teachers and fifteen voluntary teachers support staff for Chinese classes, one homework club teacher and a member of staff in charge of Chinese classes. We use textbooks published by the UK Federation of Chinese Schools (UKFCS) http://www.ukfcs.info/. We are members of the UK Association for the Promotion of Chinese Education (UKAPCE) http://www.ukapce.org.uk/, also the famous Hanban (Confucius Institute) http://www.hanban.org/ for the promotion of Chinese language and culture. Our teachers regularly attend training and seminars provided by UKAPCE and HANBAN and some of the teachers are required to attend training provided by the Community Languages Service of Tower Hamlets in order to enhance the quality of teaching.

The CISTH are fortunate to have parents that are interested and supportive of their children’s education and the future of the school. The parents of the School have formed a subcommittee enhancing the quality of the school and the children’s education through a wide range of activities, festival celebrations, presentations from inspirational speakers, family day outings and various workshops that give our children the confidence to use the Chinese language.
