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 a welcoming school and try to make it as easy for you as possible to join our learning community.

Our helpful Admissions team are at your disposal to answer questions, arrange a tour, advise on relocating and even recommend professionals to help make the process stress-free and enjoyable.

SIS is a very special environment for children to grow and develop. Our philosophy of child-focussed, personalised learning and dedication to excellence in every child produces confident learners who achieve because they are happy and go on to the best universities and jobs. Our reputation is growing around the world and therefore places are limited, so please ensure you apply early to avoid disappointment.

To allow you to find out more about the school, we have created a team of Parent Ambassadors, who have children currently studying at the school, who can share their experiences with you on a personal level. Our Ambassadors come from a range of countries and speak many languages between them, so we can match you with an Ambassador who will see things from your perspective and can speak your language. We can also show you classes in progress and introduce you to children in the same year group, to give you all a head start.

If you aren’t able to visit us personally, we can guide you through the application form via telephone and email and conduct interviews via Skype to make the process easier for you.

We also have a Summer programme of activities to allow children to become accustomed to the school in a relaxed way and prepare for the start of term. If your child’s level of English is low, you can give them a great head start and a lot of fun with intensive language learning, combined with sport and performing arts. This is a great way to try the school, even if you’re not looking to move for a while. Please contact us if you would like to find out more.

Please remember that places are limited and we recommend that applications are made before May for the September intake to avoid disappointment.

We have prepared a list of Frequently Asked Questions which will help you to find out more about the school, however we are always at the end of the phone if you want to get in touch and our door is always open.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us by calling 956 795 902.
