Transitions & Relocation

Transitions Team

Relocating to London should be an exciting time for any family, but the ongoing success of that transition frequently depends on the support and welcome from the new community. We are proud to have an award winning Transitions Programme designed to ensure our new families settle into their new lives. The ISL Transition Team ensure the continuity and development of the programme.

All members of the ISL community, including the school administration, teachers, students and the Parent Teachers Association (PTA), play an integral role in the transitions process.

Important parts of the Transitions process include an Orientation Day, Family Meet and Greet, Buddy systems and regular workshops looking at living in London, identity and culture and moving on.

ISL organises regular transition workshops for parents, led by school counsellor, Elizabeth Rawson-Jones. Participants get to meet other parents, share experiences of life on the move, learn what to expect at different stages of transition and strategies to help them adjust.
