We are a truly international school.
The International School of London is a pioneering international school that has paved the way for integrating mother tongue languages into a standard international curriculum, starting in the Early Childhood years.
Founded in 1972, it was one of the first International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Schools in the UK.
Since 1972, we have established a welcoming and inclusive community. Our diverse cultures and languages drive all our learning experiences.
We nurture creativity and curiosity to stimulate deep thinking. We foster insight, compassion and resilience to enable us to play a meaningful part in a changing world.
We celebrate our stories, our worth and our purpose to make a difference in a shared world.
Our Core Values
Diversity, Understanding, Identity and Passion.
Diversity is embracing and learning from each other—our many cultures, languages, experiences, beliefs and backgrounds, and our varied perspectives—in order to expand our minds, foster creativity and lead in innovation. I succeed.
Understanding is the compassion, learning, commitment, respect, and trust needed to understand ourselves and others to thrive in a complex world. I understand.
Identity is the nurturing of the individual within a multicultural context, providing a platform for self- expression and awareness as empowered international citizens. I belong.
Passion is the driver of the schools’ love for learning and growing, whether in the classroom, on the playing fields, in after school activities or in our contribution to better our communities and futures. I dream.
