ISM IN HISTORIC COLLABORATION WITH KING'S COLLEGE SCHOOL WIMBLEDON
We are delighted to announce that ISM and King’s College School in London have signed an agreement which brings the two schools together in close collaboration.
ISM and King’s are now “sister schools”, with day-to-day interaction taking place between staff and students at both schools, and the sharing of outstanding practice in all areas. ISM has high aspirations to become a centre of educational excellence in Europe and this unique collaboration gives ISM an opportunity to work alongside, and learn from, the very best. King’s will share its ethos and how it delivers academic excellence, outstanding pastoral care, and a comprehensive co-curricular provision. It will provide staff training and on-going quality assurance. This new partnership will also include exciting opportunities for students and staff at both schools.
The Chair of Trustees, Mr Justin Hilbert, said, “the signing of this ground-breaking collaboration agreement represents a significant step in the 25-year history of ISM. We are excited to start working with our new sister school and look forward to the numerous opportunities and benefits this agreement will bring for students at both schools.”
King’s College School is widely regarded as one of the world’s finest schools. It has averaged over 41.4/45 points in the International Baccalaureate Diploma in the last five years, placing it among the world’s top schools. It has been rated the top boys’ and co-educational independent school in London for the past three years by The Sunday Times Parent Power (2019, 2018, 2017)
ISM has made significant progress since its foundation in 1994 with fewer than 40 students, and we now have more than 670 students on the roll. Many of our graduates have been admitted to the top universities in the UK, US and around the world. This year, two students will be progressing to the University of Oxford. ISM is an International Baccalaureate World School offering the IB Diploma since 2001, and this year we are introducing the IB Career-Related Programme.
