What we stand for
We aim to ensure that every child is excited about learning. We are a Great, Thinking School, which provides pastoral care to all our children and young people. Alongside our dedicated and inspirational teachers, we pave the way to success.
We want children to grow in confidence, enthusiasm and independence during their time with us, in preparation for life in the Secondary School and beyond.
Our teaching methods reflect our forward thinking; offer a creative, stimulating environment within which children can develop a lifelong love of learning.
ISN provides a rich curricular including after school activities. Whether a pupil is interested in playing an instrument or singing in a choir, performing in a drama production, playing a sport or joining a society or club, there is something for everyone.
As an International school, our community reflects the diversity of many cultural backgrounds.
The primary department has very close links with the Secondary department as do both with the nursery dept. so that children and young people have access to each other during community service or school events.
Our Ethos and Philosophy capture the spirit of happy, aspiring, respectful young people.
These actions define and determine our character:
- Advancing the education and intellectual and moral development of our pupils, whatever their capabilities, attributes and interests
- Securing the welfare and safety of our pupils as individuals and as members of a community
- Celebrating diversity and Global citizenship
- Fostering open-mindedness and thoughtfulness in our pupils and our School
Our young people are encouraged and guided to learn the instincts of courtesy and good manners while they develop a moral code and practice living it out in readiness for their adult lives. We support them to discover and build self-confidence so that they are ready to develop strength and resourcefulness to meet the challenges of day-to-day life. Their healthy mind set, enables them to have transferable interests and pursuits in an International, co-educational setting where they learn and practice the skills of friendship through participation in a wide range of activities and European projects.
WHY would parents CHOOSE ISN?
Some of the most important decisions parents will make are about their child’s education. They would want their child’s school to meet the same goals of high academic achievement while pastorally supported. Some parents may want their child’s school to reflect the values of their family and community. In other words, they would want to choose a school that is a good fit for their child and his/her future.
