Head's Welcome

A Message From the Head of School

Serving and leading our diverse international community is an absolute privilege. As the Head of School, I extend a sincere and warm welcome to families contemplating joining us on our exceptional educational journey.

The decision to choose the right school for your child is a significant and at times, a challenging one. We genuinely understand the importance of this choice in shaping your child's educational path. Our mission is to take an innovative approach to education, inspiring each student to discover their strengths within a community of future leaders.

We are dedicated to living and breathing this mission, striving for excellence in every aspect of our school. Our ultimate goal is to see our students develop holistically, motivated to be the best version of themselves each day. With the exceptional support we provide, we empower students to unlock their potential.

Our vision extends to creating a community of compassionate and inspired global citizens. Embracing inclusivity, we acknowledge the uniqueness of every child and maintain a delicate balance between academic and pastoral support. Our staff ensures that each student is treated as an individual, fostering a personalised and innovative approach to learning.

We take immense pride in the achievements of all our students, working tirelessly to ensure each student feels valued in our school community. Regular celebrations throughout the school are aligned with our vision and mission.

Our commitment to small class sizes and a tailored learning approach has yielded remarkable results, including a 100% pass rate, an IB diploma point score average significantly higher than the world average, and a 100% acceptance rate into first-choice universities. ICS London consistently ranks among the top 10 IB small schools in the country. Embracing students from diverse backgrounds—representing over 50 nationalities—our commitment to diversity fosters an environment where students from various cultural backgrounds learn and develop together. We actively promote kindness, compassion, and respect, caring for ourselves, our global community, and our environment.

At ICS London, we are all lifelong learners, committed to becoming our best selves. Our teachers create a nurturing classroom environment while providing an appropriate level of challenge. We encourage students to embrace failure and mistakes as opportunities to reflect and learn. Every member of our community is urged to be innovative and realise their true capabilities. We teach resilience by consistently striving to do the right thing, even when faced with challenges. Upholding values such as honesty, open-mindedness, reliability, and fairness, we prepare every child to make a positive impact in an ever-changing and increasingly challenging world.

ICS London transcends being just a school; it is a second home. As you step through our doors, you will sense the incredible support and a place where students feel a profound sense of belonging. I strongly encourage you to visit us and experience it firsthand. We look forward to welcoming you to ICS London.
