Global community

With more than 80 nationalities, our diverse, international community exposes our students to a rich variety of outlooks, opinions and cultures.

Warm and welcoming environment

Your whole family will be welcomed into our school’s community that extends far beyond the classroom. Your child will grow as a confident, caring individual, whilst developing the skills and attitudes required to be successful in our constantly evolving international world.


We believe that the English National Curriculum for children age 3 to 16, coupled with the Diploma Programme of the International Baccalaureate for students age 16 to 18, are the finest and most developed combination of curricula available globally. It is for this reason that we choose to deliver these curriculums to our students.

Preparing Your Child for the World Stage

The performing arts are creative keys that can unlock students' imagination and significantly transform their education. We work with the world’s best organisations such as Juilliard Performing Arts, to provide students with outstanding opportunities and experiences.
