SIS is about more than teaching

SIS provides an extensive range of after-school activities programmes, including cultural, creative, and physical activities: crafts, games, music, theatre, sports, and visual arts

We limit the use of mobile phones to avoid digital distractions, and instead keep students focused and interacting with each other during breaks

The SIS Parent Community provides a strong and welcoming support network for new families, helping you and your children to settle in your new surroundings and makes friends

A variety of other support is on hand inside and outside the classroom:

  • English as an Additional Language (EAL) support
  • Mother tongue programmes in popular languages within our community
  • University and career counselling
  • Extensive counselling and Learning Support provision throughout the School
