Head's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to ICS London.

Our mission is to provide an innovative approach to education, inspiring each and every student to discover their strengths within a community of future leaders. 

At ICS London, we have over 40 years’ experience providing a world class education. We deliver the International Baccalaureate (IB) across the entire 3-18 age range.

We take pride in knowing each and every one of our students. Our warm and stimulating environment encourages all our students to discover their strengths. Our talented and highly motivated staff inspire students to be the best that they can be.  By setting high expectations for learners, we expect them to develop into top candidates for entry into the best universities around the World.

As a parent myself, I understand how important choosing the right school for your child is. Education is the greatest gift we can give to our children, providing them with the right tools they need to succeed in life.

With over twenty years of experience in both the UK and international education sector, I am a passionate leader with a drive to develop outstanding schools. In the early part of my teaching career, I was seconded as an advisory teacher. After moving abroad, I eventually began working for Nord Anglia Education, first as Head of Primary for the British School of Guangzhou, and later as Principal for The British School of Beijing. Most recently, I was responsible for the establishment of a brand new international school in the heart of Lisbon, Portugal's capital city.

I hope my headteacher’s welcome provides you with a sense of the type of international school we are and the values we represent. I look forward to you visiting the school so you can see first-hand the quality of education we provide, and our students’ enthusiasm and passion for learning.
