DEVELOPING EXCELLENCE IN A CARING INTERNATIONAL SETTING
We provide a high quality, international education for students aged from 12 months to 18 years
The curriculum at KIS is based on the English National Curriculum, and adapted where appropriate for use in an international school, as well as the Cambridge IGCSE and A Level programmes.
Focussed on the development of the whole student
The school will develop ‘the whole child’ through the combination of a broad, balanced curriculum, a wide-ranging extracurricular programme, excellent facilities and resources, high quality staff and informed leadership and governance, allied to good financial planning.
Highly qualified, experienced teachers
Teachers at KIS are recruited through a rigorous process designed to ensure our students benefit from the best teaching possible. New overseas staff are typically employed direct from the UK or from other International Schools abroad. All must have accredited teaching qualifications and a minimum of three years’ teaching experience.
KIS wants to be the best it can be – working hard for its Council Of International Schools (CIS) accreditation
The school asked an independent accreditation authority to review all areas of the school. The school’s CIS accreditation means that the school has been rigorously assessed by an external, independent organisation against an agreed benchmark of standards across all areas of the school.
Not for profit school
All fees are used to continually improve the resources and facilities at the school.
Benefitting from an international community
At KIS we understand that to become ‘successful global citizens’ our students need to develop knowledge and understanding of both their own cultures and those of other people. We strive to offer students a range of experiences that will enhance learning, raise awareness and promote life-long interest and involvement in local, national and international affairs.
Internationally recognised qualifications
The Cambridge International Examinations for IGCSE and A Levels offered at KIS are recognised worldwide by universities and employers. CIE is the world’s largest provider of international education programmes and qualifications.
English language in both teaching and social contact
Students at KIS are immersed in the English language, all day every day. For those for whom English is not their first language this will greatly increase confidence and capability.

HIGHLY QUALIFIED & EXPERIENCED STAFF
KIS follows the arrangements for the National Curriculum for England, which groups classes into Key Stages. Our academic year runs from August to July and, as per the UK guidelines, students are placed into year groups according to their age on the 1st of September. However, the school reserves the right to recommend placement in an alternative year group, if this is deemed to be in the best interests of the child. Once assigned to a year group, a student will remain with this cohort throughout their time with us.
