Junior School | Ages 3 - 11

Welcome to ISB Junior School

As an IB World school, everyone on our campus is a learner, with the students at the centre of all we do. We work together to provide an exceptional educational experience that is challenging and engaging. Students are encouraged to grow and learn in the happy and supportive environment built around mutual respect and care for one another.

Primary Years Programme

The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) is designed for students aged 3 - 11 (EC 1 to Grade 5). The programme provides a relevant, engaging and challenging educational framework for all children, focusing on their whole growth. The PYP prepares students to become active, caring, lifelong learners, who demonstrate respect for themselves and others. Learn more about the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme.

We offer the PYP programme in two language combinations: English (with German as a second language) and English-German (The Dual Language Programme). Both provide an engaging and challenging educational framework encompassing children's social, physical, emotional, academic and cultural development. 

English Programme

This programme is ideal for:

  • families who speak English at home and prefer their child to develop academic skills in their home language
  • families who do not speak English or German at home and therefore new to English

Dual Language Programme

This programme is ideal for:

  • families who are English or German native speakers and aim to improve their children's language proficiency in both languages.

Themes

Learning is organised around six Transdisciplinary Themes:

Subjects

Through an integrated approach to teaching and learning, ISB uses a variety of differentiated teaching methods drawn from a range of exciting learning tasks and strategies applied to all key learning areas. The same teacher (homeroom teacher) teaches Language (English), Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. Specialist teachers plan and work collaboratively with homeroom teachers to teach: Arts (Music and Visual Arts), additional language (German) and Physical, Social and Personal Education (PSPE).
