We are very proud of our reputation as Koh Samui’s Premier International School, as well as Koh Samui’s longest serving internationally licensed and accredited School. We are a British ethos school at heart and we aim to give our students every opportunity to achieve great things both at school and beyond, hence our motto “For a Better Future”.
Our annual IGCSE results are consistently high, with 55% A*/A grades achieved this year, over two times the UK average, whilst our Primary School also continues to shine with 14% of our Upper Primary School students this year achieving a High score (top grades) in all three combined subjects of Reading, Writing and Mathematics, over three times the UK average. These academic results are having an impact as many of our alumni are now studying at highly regarded and prestigious Universities around the World.
The secret to this success we feel is simple; the school is small enough to be able to focus on the individual child and at the same time, as Founders of the school, we are able to manage the recruitment and retention of teachers who share our passion for nurturing both the academic development of children at the school and just as importantly to nurture their wellbeing at school. Sport, Music, Drama, Art, School trips, Extra Curricular activities combined with an imaginative curriculum and fantastic teachers is the key we feel to our student’s success.
It is no wonder that students who graduate from ISS are fully prepared and ready for their next academic challenge, be it moving to a new school or University anywhere around the World.
2017 sees us celebrating our 10th anniversary since the school was founded in January 2007 and we wish to recognise this milestone by providing the funding for 10 new scholarship places at the school. These ‘Lees Scholarship’ awards will be offered to children living on Koh Samui who demonstrate a strong academic aptitude but who would otherwise be unable to study here at ISS due to their families’ financial circumstances.
More details about these new scholarship places and the application process are available on the school website at this link or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
