Learning is at the heart of everything we do for our pupils, colleagues and parents. We are committed to getting better, all the time.

 

ISP was founded by an experienced team of committed educationalists and commercial operators who have worked together over many years. Our growing group of private schools located in the UK, the USA, Europe, Costa Rica, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Malaysia, Mexico and Peru educate children and pupils from 2-18 years of age. We have now expanded to 45 schools delivering multiple curricula and building on local brands and reputations with around 45,000 pupils and 7,000 staff located across the globe.

 

We believe that successful schools are the ones that put learning at the heart of everything they do, always aiming to create rounded individuals that are able to forge successful careers and lives in a rapidly changing world. Our goal is to enable our schools as the leading school of choice in their local area. We are a truly international group working in different cultures and speaking different languages. We work across countries and cultures, too, by working with each other and with other schools and communities. At ISP we continue to engage with schools around the world who are interested in becoming part of our global group of schools and look forward to welcoming more pupils and staff to the group.

 

All our schools:

  • Help children and pupils learn to levels that amaze them.
  • Inspire children and pupils to be successful now and equip them to be successful later.
  • Are truly international, working in partnerships within and across regions, cultures and languages.
  • Aim to be the schools of choice for children, pupils and their families, wherever we are.
