Head of School’s Welcome

It is my great pleasure to welcome and introduce you to all that our outstanding school has to offer. If you were to ask current parents why they chose FIS, they would probably tell you that our confident and spirited students are happy, well-educated, open-minded, and at ease with themselves and each other. As a diverse and engaged community, we value kindness, integrity and equality. We are proud to celebrate diversity as we know that children learn best in an equitable and inclusive society. At FIS, we are fortunate to welcome students and staff from around the world and from all socio-economic backgrounds.

Our talented and supportive team nurtures and expands our students’ skills and attributes by providing a first-class academic and collaborative learning environment where the importance of the individual is paramount. Our students are pushed to think and to explore within our broad and varied academic curriculum and extensive extracurricular programme. They have a strong sense of ethical, environmental and social responsibility and will go on to become people who will make a positive impact on the lives of others.

FIS students enjoy great success in public examinations and these outcomes, a testament to our students’ success, allow the best foundation for their future. However, it is important to us too that learning at FIS be deep as well as broad, and we encourage the development of the whole person.

Life here is multi-dimensional and no website can fully capture the spirit of FIS. The best way to get to know us is to come and visit. There are admissions events held throughout the year and you will be made most welcome.
