Headteacher's Welcome

User-added imageWelcome to The International School of Moscow. We are one of the leading schools in Europe, providing an exceptional education to children aged 2 to 18 through the full range of Early Years, Primary and Secondary schooling. I am thrilled that you are considering our school and hope that you can see, from the details on our website, that ISM is an excellent choice for your child.  

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will ever have to make. At The International School of Moscow, we recognise the enormity of this choice. We ensure that every child fulfils their potential and become fully-rounded individuals, well equipped to succeed in the ever-changing world around us. Through highly enjoyable and engaging learning experiences, pupils acquire the skills and knowledge set out in the English National Curriculum and also develop as individuals through a broad range of extra-curricular and enrichment activities. 

Most of our classroom teachers are either qualified in the United Kingdom or have experience of working in UK schools. All our teachers receive up-to-date training to ensure that our standards are always high. State-of-the-art technologies are integrated into our curriculum and classrooms to ensure that our pupils are well-prepared for the future. A range of rich academic resources complement our campuses, guaranteeing that every child in our care receives the best possible education. 

As well as academic progress, your child will develop into a responsible global citizen, guided by our school’s principles of honesty, integrity, tolerance and respect for others. Pupils are encouraged to be inquisitive and to play a part in their own development, as well as being challenged and given the opportunity to discover their abilities. We work hard to create an environment where children enjoy learning and feel safe and confident to participate, make mistakes and have fun.  

Our school is part of the British Schools Foundation (BSF), an established family of ten schools that extend across the world in Asia, South America and Europe. This international network provides regular and frequent opportunities for engaging with the broader BSF family. As a result, our pupils are more likely to develop ambitions and a sense of their own potential that is marked by a broad, global perspective. 

Our aim is to ensure that all students who complete their education with us are exceptionally well-prepared for university life, life-long learning and an exciting career in the ever-changing twenty-first century. 

I encourage you to come and visit our campuses. We are very proud of our school’s warm, welcoming atmosphere and would be extremely pleased to share the achievements of our school and pupils with you. For more information or to arrange a tour, please contact our Admissions department.

Very best wishes,
