At ESF Island School we do something different. Our focus is on igniting a passion for learning in every student. Teaching students facts and figures is no longer enough for them to succeed once they enter higher education and the workforce. We encourage students to problem solve, question and think creatively with new concepts and ideas. Students are encouraged to become resourceful, adaptable and confident learners.
Island School students come from all over the world and central to our international heritage is the celebration and understanding of each other’s’ cultures.
Students learn to care for each other, for the environment and for other people through our rich co-curricular programme and the family atmosphere of the House system.
Our academic record is excellent with students going on to the foremost universities and colleges in the world. You will find details of the curriculum and qualifications on offer on our website. Our aim is to help students develop a passion for learning in a range of areas, whether it be Law or Robotics and Coding or Music production.
