This week in Grade 5 we have been working on our opinion writing. We have been collecting evidence for both sides of an argument before formulating our opinions or claims and looking through the structure of an effective opinion piece.

We offer an exceptional world of learning for every student. Starting with a genuinely warm welcome to our multi-cultural environment, we work with each child to devise an individual learning programme tailored to their unique needs and goals. Our strong focus on student wellbeing, in a supportive environment, is complemented in the classroom by dynamic teaching practises. It’s this all-round approach that we believe leads to the academic and personal success that characterises ISL pupils.
ISL was the first school in the UK to offer the
International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme.
Big enough to make a difference, small enough to care.
Average Class Size
Our 1:6 student/teacher ratio on average helps ensure individual attention.
1st Choice University
After the IB at ISL students go on to study a course that is right for them.
2020 IB Points
Our students score an average of 35.2 out of possible 45 points, with the two highest achieving 44 points.
ISL truly embraces the fact that we are a multicultural school. This is reflected in our teaching staff who come from all over the world and everybody belongs because everybody is different.
We don't have one dominant group. In all lessons we actively seek to celebrate our rich cultural diversity.
Although there are more languages spoken in school, we offer lessons at mother tongue level in 25 different languages. Wherever you are from, we speak your language.
