The International School of London (ISL) is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School with embedded mother tongue language programmes and over 40 years' experience of delivering education excellence for ages 3-18. Our school has earned a global reputation as a leading International Baccalaureate (IB) school and is widely recognised as one of the UK's best and most experienced international schools.

We offer an exceptional world of learning for every student. Starting with a genuinely warm welcome to our multi-cultural environment from our award winning transitions team, we work with each child to devise an individual learning programme tailored to their unique needs and goals. Our strong focus on student wellbeing, in a supportive environment, is complemented in the classroom by dynamic teaching practises. It’s this all-round approach that we believe leads to the academic and personal success that characterises ISL pupils.

We are a culturally diverse community. Students' cultural and linguistic identities are valued and nurtured through our international curriculum and mother tongue programme. Our school develops the attitudes, skills and understanding needed for active and responsible contributions to both local and global communities.

ISL has high academic standards, offering three IB programmes: the Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programmes. These three align to the unique developmental needs of students from age three through to pre-university.

We are committed to intercultural and high-quality education taking learning beyond the walls of the classroom. We provide many opportunities in sports, service learning, and the arts which challenge our students to grow and develop. Our location in the city of London provides fantastic opportunities for innovative projects. The breadth and depth of our programmes ensure that our graduates are prepared for life at leading universities worldwide.

ISL has a family atmosphere, and we give a voice to all members of our community, with active parent groups and a committed student government. Students at ISL develop a keen sense of inter-cultural understanding which is something of great value in our globalised world. ISL actively celebrates this diversity throughout the year from class activities to whole school events.
