Welcome

Richard Parker, ISL Head of School

Welcome to the International School of London (ISL), a school now well into its fifth decade of success.

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.

We are a culturally diverse community. Students' cultural and linguistic identities are valued and nurtured through our international curriculum and mother tongue programme. Our school develops the attitudes, skills and understanding needed for active and responsible contributions to both local and global communities.

ISL has high academic standards, offering three IB programmes: the Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programmes. These three align to the unique developmental needs of students from age three through to pre-university.

We are committed to re-imagining education taking learning beyond the walls of the classroom. We provide many opportunities in sports, service learning, and the arts which challenge our students to grow and develop. Our location in the city of London provides fantastic opportunities for innovative projects. The breadth and depth of the our programmes ensure that our graduates are prepared for life at leading universities worldwide.

ISL has a family atmosphere, and we give a voice to all members of our community, with active parent groups and a committed student government. Students at ISL develop a keen sense of inter-cultural understanding which is something of great value in our globalised world. ISL actively celebrates this diversity throughout the year from class activities to whole school events.

ISL will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a renewed sense of purpose. We hope you will visit our school and join our vibrant and forward looking community.
