What we stand for
Our goal is to ensure that every child is enthusiastic about learning. We are a great thinking school, which offers pastoral care to all our children and young people. Alongside our dedicated and inspiring 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 high school and beyond.
Our teaching methods reflect our forward-looking vision; provide a creative and stimulating environment in which children can develop a lifelong love of learning.
ISN offers a rich program including extracurricular activities. Whether a student wants to play an instrument or sing in a choir, act in a play, play a sport or join 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 department. so that children and youth have access to each other at community services or school events.
Our ethos and philosophy captures the spirit of happy, aspiring and respectful young people.
These actions define and determine our character:
- To advance the education and intellectual and moral development of our students, regardless of their abilities, attributes and interests
- Ensuring the well-being and safety of our students as individuals and as members of a community
- Celebrating diversity and global citizenship
- Encourage open-mindedness and reflection among our students and our School
Our young people are encouraged and guided to learn the instincts of courtesy and good manners while developing a moral code and practicing to live it for their adult life. We help them discover and develop self-confidence so that they are ready to develop their strength and ingenuity to meet the challenges of everyday life. Their healthy mindset allows them to have transferable interests and activities in an international and mixed setting where they learn and practice friendship skills by participating in a wide range of European activities and projects.
