The Southbank Kensington campus serves the age range 3 to 11 as an international primary school. Students take the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) and transfer to the Westminster campus at age 11. The PYP age groups are equivalent to pre-school, kindergarten, elementary school, junior school or preparatory school in other education systems.
Southbank International School uses London as a classroom – taking full advantage of the cultural riches of the city. As part of each unit of inquiry, teachers look for opportunities to maximise learning in context, visiting cultural sites, galleries, museums, London parks and wildlife centres.
The Kensington campus has children from almost 40 different nationalities and is noted for its friendly, welcoming atmosphere.
English is the language of instruction, with Spanish as the school’s second language, taught from Kindergarten upwards. English as an Additional Language (EAL) is offered from Kindergarten upwards.
As a leading International Baccalaureate School in London, Southbank attracts very well-qualified and internationally experienced teachers.
Admission is based on previous school performance, reports and good references, as well as consideration of the compatability of the student’s profile for the academic and social aspects of the Primary Years Programme.
