London's leading IB school

Established in 1979, Southbank International School is a friendly, vibrant school that’s focused on academic excellence and developing students who make a positive difference to the world.

We do this by providing a dynamic and exciting International Baccalaureate education for a wide range of 3 to 19-year-olds, who currently come from over 70 countries.

We also place great importance on opening the eyes and minds of our students to the world and all it offers. This includes venturing outside the classroom as much as possible to enjoy and learn from London’s unrivalled cultural, historic and outdoor resources.

As a result, we produce unique young people who think independently, engage confidently with others, and want to give back to communities on a local, national and global level.

We believe this gives our students an excellent platform to go on to a world-leading university and succeed in all aspects of their adult life.
