Secondary

Welcome from the Head of ISB Secondary

Jean AtkinsonIt is my pleasure to welcome you to the ISB Secondary School on behalf of the Secondary Team.

In the secondary school at the ISB, we aim to provide a nurturing and challenging learning environment that will guide your son or daughter from the first years after primary school into rigorous, pre-academic study before seeing them off to higher education and other endeavours. During these years, students move from childhood into adolescence, increasing their curiosity and independence along the way. It can be a challenging time as students explore their identity, where they fit in the world, and who they want to become as individuals.

We see it as our job in secondary education to guide students through this growing-up process and to provide learning experiences that not only prepare them academically but personally, through approaches that consider the whole student, not just the academic side. We strive to create an open-minded, encouraging, learning environment that introduces students to the skills, concepts and sensitivities they need to grow into the global citizens of tomorrow.

Kind regards,

Jean Atkinson
Head of Secondary
