We offer a broad and balanced curriculum that ensures both academic success and the necessary skills to be successful at the best universities and beyond.

We believe in a growth mindset, recognising that we learn from challenges and can all find ways to achieve success.

We provide personalised support and guidance from Grade 7 until Grade 12 to assist every student along their learning journey.

We provide leadership opportunities, expert career advice and a stimulating, dynamic learning environment where all students feel happy and supported.

Every day is a wonderful day in our High School and I am exceptionally proud of our community of teachers, students and parents who make this happen.

Our Curriculum

Our unique SIS-PIK High School curriculum is a well-rounded programme of academic and non-academic opportunities designed to ensure all of our students develop the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve their full potential. Our curriculum design is based on robust research providing an equal emphasis on three domains of purpose:

  1. Knowledge and Skills – ensuring our students gain the knowledge and skills required for a 21st century future through the IBDP, IGCSE & vocational BTEC courses, the SIS-PIK Enterprise Curriculum, our Artificial Intelligence Curriculum and Life Skills.
  2. Self Identification – ensuring our students develop the values and beliefs to be successful autonomous learners with a focus on a ‘Growth Mindset’ that builds the 4Rs of Resourcefulness, Reciprocity, Resilience, Reflection whilst valuing Innovation, Integrity and Inclusivity.
  3. Socialisation – ensuring our students actively understand and are participants in local and global society through regular workshops, event days, our assembly programme, national and international competitions, sporting events, house activities and our Co-Curricular Activity (CCA) Programme.

Grades 7 & 8

Our students begin their journey in Junior High with a challenging and rewarding programme which is designed as the ‘base-camp’ of their journey towards the SIS ‘Peak’.
