School Life

ISL is a truly international school that personalises its learning to meet the needs of all its students. Our school has earned a global reputation as a leading International Baccalaureate (IB) school and is widely recognised as one of the UK’s best and most experienced international schools. 

Priding ourselves on our family atmosphere, ISL gives a voice to all members of our community, through active parent groups and a committed student government. Students at ISL develop a keen sense of intercultural understanding, which prepares them to thrive in today’s globalised world. 


At ISL, we actively celebrate diversity. Students' cultural and linguistic identities are valued and nurtured through our international curriculum and extensive mother tongue language programme. Students are provided with the tools to develop the attitudes, skills and understanding needed for active and responsible contributions to local and global communities.

Intercultural Environment

At ISL, students are part of an environment with people from different backgrounds and nationalities.

We believe this creates a rewarding and fulfilling personal experience, with students learning to embrace diversity and tolerance, while freeing themselves of cultural barriers.
