Welcome to Secondary

Welcome to ISB, a vibrant, friendly and internationally diverse school situated in a fantastic new campus with modern teaching areas, excellent facilities and wonderful outdoor spaces.

We value community and provide a warm, supportive and inclusive environment where students of all ability ranges and backgrounds are inspired and challenged to achieve and excel; be it in the classroom, on the sports field, in Performing Arts or on-stage at the Model United Nations.

ISB is proud to be a not-for-profit school, where all revenue goes back into making the school a place where students, not costs, are the primary driver of improvement. Academic studies are enriched by a wide range of learning activities – from Eco projects to FOBISIA events, from community service to school productions and from ECAs to House competitions.

In the Secondary section, students are placed at the centre of everything we do, focussing on developing every student as an individual. Through the support and commitment of our highly qualified Secondary staff we are a school where:

Students strive for personalised academic excellence;

Students develop their independence and take control of their learning;

All students are supported through excellent pastoral care;

Diversity is respected, understood and celebrated;

Students take part in programmes that prepare them to become global citizens;

Students learn to take better care of the environment around them.

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme is offered to our Year 12 and Year 13 students – a broad based course that best matches our mission and vision - a gold-standard programme that is academically challenging, but also best prepares students for university;

Staff actively seek out opportunities for professional development - internally, nationally and internationally to ensure that teaching is always the highest possible standard and contains modern pedagogical thinking to engage, enthuse and motivate students in lessons. We are incredibly proud of our school, our students and our community. We look forward to welcoming you to ISB so that you can see for yourself.
