Our students learn using the world's most respected curricula, forming a lifelong love of learning and creating academic results that open pathways to top universities.

Our students study the English National Curriculum, the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) and International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP). These qualifications are internationally recognised by all the major universities around the world.

Our class sizes are small, with an average pupil to teacher ratio of 9:1, giving students the individual attention needed to excel in a fast-paced learning environment.

Our highly accredited teachers and colleagues stay with our team for an average of six years, with some staying with us for much longer. This continuity helps build a strong base of expertise, with many colleagues promoted to senior positions within the school.

We take select teachers on subject-specific training every year with Apple, MIT and The Juilliard School. This exclusive training means our teachers are on the cutting edge of their profession.

Our social purpose

Our school has a long history of taking part in, and leading, local and global Model United Nations. 

Our Social Impact Programme with UNICEF challenges students to think about what they can do to make a difference – locally and globally – to support the UN Sustainable Development 2030 agenda. Every year, we set a Global Challenge and invite Nord Anglia students to come together and join seminars, workshops and speaking opportunities at the High-level Political Forum at the UN Headquarters in New York. The goal for our students is simple: use these life-changing opportunities to influence world leaders and make the world a better place.

We also partner with the Wanliao Migrant School and invite students to learn English through practicing sports, arts and a variety of activities, and welcome them to be part of the wider NAIS Community.
