Chinese Independent School of Tower Hamlets
Traditional Chinese 繁體字
The Chinese Independent School of Tower Hamlets (CISTH) has been successfully established for 35 years. It has served many students within the Chinese and Vietnamese Community in Tower Hamlets and beyond. Due to the popular trend of learning language, many English, Eastern European, Southern European and South Asian children also joined the CISTH to learn Chinese. The school locates in a modern purpose built near Shadwell c/o St Mary and St Michael Primary School with an auditorium and school hall.
The school predominately provides Mandarin and Cantonese lessons for the Chinese community and anyone who wishes to learn. We currently run twenty-seven classes ranging from Playgroup to A level in Mandarin and Cantonese. We also run conversational Mandarin for adults and various revision classes and Homework Club for children (free for CISTH pupils, children's Chinese Folk Dancing and adult Tai Chi.). We are proud to have a diversity of students currently studying at the school and achieving excellent GCSE grades.
In addition to our awards, we have won awards for the Best Language Project within a Community Setting in 2009, 2012, 2013 and 2015. We have also achieved Silver Award in the Quality Framework for Supplementary Schools in 2006 and Gold Award in the Quality Framework for Supplementary Schools in 2011 (Dated from 2 Feb 2011 – 28 Feb 2014).
