School life



18/20 Students
per classroom

A key strategy of our methodology is to work in small groups. We believe that students learn better in a small group setting, as this increases opportunities to develop one’s own thinking and ideas and communicate these. Optimizing teacher-student relationships, bonds with fellow students and personalised coaching makes learning come alive for every student.
Each classroom has two teachers.

Green environment

Green environment

ISCB is unique in offering our Forest School programme. Qualified and experienced forest practitioners deliver the skills and concepts of Forest School in our very own privileged and natural setting.

At ISCB we offer unparalleled authentic learning opportunities for all, positively impacting on the lives of children by connecting them with the natural environmentin a unique and inspirational way, using this as a springboard for learning outside the classroom.

Extra activities

Extra curricular
activities programme

Hands-on learning experiences and thinking enable us to connect and integrate new experiences into our existing understanding and perception of how things are. For every learner, this is critical in developing a ‘base knowledge’ on which to hook all new knowledge and experiences. At ISCB we scaffold from the simplest thinking skills of assimilating facts and recall, to higher cognitive skills including analysis, synthesis, problem solving, and evaluation.

healthy diet

School lunch
and balanced diet

At ISCB, eating healthily means providing the children with nutritious, fresh and home-cooked food that we know the children will enjoy. Our lunch menus provide a healthy, nutritionally-balanced diet, and are designed to provide variety and is adapted seasonally – see an example below.

Children are also encouraged to drink water at regular intervals and they have independent access to water throughout the day.
At ISCB we actively promote healthy eating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle from an early age.

Nut free

Nut free

We strive to be a nut-free school.

Although we recognise that this cannot be guaranteed, ISCB aims to be a Nut Free school. This policy serves to set out all measures to reduce the risk to those children and adults who may suffer an anaphylactic reaction if exposed to nuts to which they are sensitive.

The school aims to protect children who have allergies to nuts yet also help them, as they grow up, to take responsibility as to what foods they can eat and to be aware of where they may be put at risk. We do not allow nuts or nut products in school lunch boxes.

The houses

Each House is a small group within the larger School community that fosters pride, responsibility, and respect for the contributions of others.

Every ISCB pupil belongs to a House during their time at the school. This House will become almost like a family to them, as it provides the basis for many friendships.

In a spirit of collegiality and friendship, mutual support drives a culture of collaboration among the ISCB staff.

We have built a community of teaching staff that is second to none: committed, passionate, highly qualified with international experience – our staff knows what it takes to become high achievers and they understand the emotional needs of our students.
