Your child has the power to change the world. And in our supportive international community, they’ll do exactly that. Through life-changing experiences and collaborations, your child will learn about the challenges facing our planet and take action to address them. They’ll lead the way in our school and community, too.

living our school values

Through the BISAD Diploma, our students are encouraged to demonstrate the school values of honesty, kindness, and respect, and do things to help others. This might include coming up with a great idea to support a local charity, helping a younger child with their homework, or suggesting ways to make our school more environmentally friendly.

Our Personal, Social and Moral Education programme is embedded in every child’s curriculum, too.

having a global impact

Our social impact programme in collaboration with UNICEF challenges our students to make a difference – both locally and globally – in support of the UN Sustainable Development agenda. Every year, our students head to UN headquarters in New York to take part in the Global Challenge, where they contribute to seminars and debates, and influence world leaders. Activities surrounding World Children’s Day teach our students about their rights, how to protect them, and how to advocate for those who may not have a voice.

the adventure of a lifetime

Our citizenship expedition to Arusha in Tanzania is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Our students work alongside changemakers from Nord Anglia schools across the globe on vital community projects, while learning about the wider impact they have on the planet. The trip develops confident, independent young people, who return to our school with determination to make a difference.
