The Chinese Independent School of Tower Hamlets (CISTH) has been successfully established for 33 years. It has served many students within the Chinese and Vietnamese Community in Tower Hamlets and beyond. Due to the popular trend of learning Chinese 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 school near Shadwell c/o St Mary and St Michael Primary School. The school has twenty two classrooms, 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 and English for adults and various revision classes and Homework Club for children (free for CISTH pupils, children's Chinese Folk Dancing class and adult Tai Chi.). We are proud to have a diversity of students currently studying at the school and achieving excellent GCSE grades.
