Guiding Statements old

KISU may choose to offer a modified version of the English National Curriculum from ages 2-16 (and the IB Diploma thereafter) but it is unequivocally an IB school. In classrooms throughout Early Years, Primary and Secondary a clear commitment to the IB learner profile is evident with teachers planning and facilitating activities that develop learners who are:

  • Reflective
  • Balanced
  • Open-minded
  • Principled
  • Inquiring
  • Caring
  • Thinking
  • Knowledgeable
  • Articulate
  • Risk takers
Learning statements

At KISU we believe in a constructivist approach to learning where teachers and students are building meaning and understanding through inquiring and interacting together.

We also believe that a great education is about far more than acquiring knowledge and practising for examinations. We are committed to a holistic approach where young people’s skills, values and personal qualities are all developed.

We believe passionately that this approach leads to deeper learning and encourages a sense of enjoyment and a love of learning that will stay with our students throughout their lives and prepare them to go out into the world and change it for the better.
