The International Schools Partnership (ISP) is a growing group of committed colleagues in financially responsible schools around the world, all of which aim to be the school of choice in their local area. Learning is at the heart of everything we do for our students, colleagues and parents. We are committed to getting better, all the time.

We are here to help our schools. We want them to get better. The best people to run our schools are the people in our schools. We call our way of working the ISP Framework. Our main role is as a critical friend and advisor to our schools.

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 USA, Canada, Italy, Spain, Switzerland,Poland, Morocco, the UK, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica,  Brazil, Ecuador, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Malaysia, Mexico and Peru educate children and students from 2–18 years of age. We have now expanded to 82 schools delivering multiple curricula and building on local brands and reputations with around 80,000 students and 10,000 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 to be 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 that are interested in becoming part of our global group of schools and look forward to welcoming more students and staff to the group.


Our Vision: To be the leading international schools group of quality and scale, with schools of choice recognised across local communities and the global education sector for amazing learning, ambition and growth. Put simply, we are about growing learning and growing schools.

Our Vision, Purpose and Principles make it overtly clear what we are trying to achieve and what we stand for. I am proud to be associated with a vision that has learning at its heart.

We are developing learning-focused schools for 2–18 year olds and helping our students learn to levels that amaze them. At the same time, we are listening to our parents and students to broaden the appeal of our schools, with the aim of each one becoming the school of choice in its local area over time. We are constantly enhancing our existing group of schools with new ones including those we develop ourselves and new schools that want to join our partnership.

Our schools recognise parental needs and the developmental and learning needs of their children and students in ways that enable them to forge successful careers and relationships as adults. How we work together counts. We believe strong organisations are built from respect, openness and effective teamwork. ISP works to support schools to be the best they can be and continually get better. We want a culture where anyone can have a good idea; we listen to that idea and act on feedback.
