We are a learning community, passionate about providing an International Education, which inspires and encourages learning and intercultural understanding.

We facilitate self-discovery and the development of unique interests, gifts and talents.

We promote service learning as a force for good in the world.


We are justifiably proud of our MYP and Diploma exam results, which consistently show our average grades being higher than the IB World average.  Each year approximately 90% of SIS students graduate school with an IB Diploma and gain entry to good universities all over the world.

Our philosophy is to use child-focused, holistic learning to inspire, challenge and empower students to become the best they can be. We have brought together a team of highly qualified, experienced, dynamic and dedicated teachers and support staff to inspire and educate our students in a broad range of subjects.

As a result of our commitment and dedication to providing the best possible learning environment for each individual need, we are achieving consistently high academic results. In 2015 the school diploma average for  three higher level subjects was close to 16 points, equivalent to a 6 and two 5s. This is equated to an A and two  Bs at A level by UK universities. 10% of diploma scores for three higher level subjects were 18 or more points,  which is equivalent to all As and A*s at A level. One third of diploma students scored between 5 and 7 points in  all their subjects.

The top UK universities usually make offers to students who achieve between 32 and 40 points, therefore  these grades put us on a firm footing with very high achieving schools in the UK. If you want to know what the IB equivalents are in terms of other qualifications please don’t hesitate to get in  touch.
