Our approach and curriculum
At NIS, every child is encouraged to achieve his or her best in and outside the classroom. Our Seven Guiding Principles capture the essence of NIS. They influence the day to day activities of the school and give our children the courage and will to put new ideas into practice.
A variety of teaching strategies alongside the latest ICT technology are used to ensure that our goals are realized. From the outset, confidence and self esteem are nurtured and happy, compassionate, disciplined students will move from NIS prep ( mostly at the age of 11+) to our Senior School with foundations and friendships to last a life time. Our team of highly skilled, experienced and dedicated faculty delivers the curriculum using innovative styles, methods and resources, whereby learning becomes collaborative, rich and negotiated, weaving a rich fabric of stimulation and evaluation.
Children are encouraged to take part in a wide range of extracurricular activities throughout the year which include football, netball, basketball, cricket, rounders, hockey, athletics, swimming, music, drama, computers, scouts, art, cookery and chess. The House system of competitions enhances students’ sense of belonging to their respective teams.
