Our family of international schools span the world, from North America to Europe, South East Asia and the Middle East. All of our students are united through our Global Classroom initiative, which encourages them to interact online and through face-to-face exchanges. We're also an academic leader in language learning, with excellent provision and expertise for developing these essential skills.


We are dedicated to working with parents to deliver the most appropriate and tailored education for their children, listening to their needs and acting on them. Parental involvement welcomed through our completely parent run Charity coffee shop ChatterBox, to the Parent’s Association’s International Day, and through to classroom representatives. We also want our school to be a social hub for the rapidly-developing local community, and to make a difference locally and globally through community initiatives such as Nordstar. Through our approach to learning, extracurricular and our community activities, parents are as much part of our school as their children.
