How many children in a class?
In line with our school policy, we admit a maximum of 15 students in class. Where a class has 16 or more students, the class would usually be split in two and a new class created.
Do you have boarding facilities?
The boarding school, for secondary school students, will be ready in September 2017. However, we have started receiving applications and admission will be on a first come first serve basis with preference given to students presently in the NIS primary school.
What are your fees like?
Once a place is offered, prospective parents will be invoiced for payment of school fees.
Do you offer discounts for families with more than two children in the school?
A number of discounted payments are available in the school. Details of this would be communicated when a place is offered to an applying family
What is the admission age for children coming to your school?
A child coming into our nursery school must be 2 years old by the end of December of the relevant school year.
What kind of facilities do you have?
NIS boasts of two buildings that houses our EYFS and Primary pupils; and Secondary students respectively. For learning purposes, the school has a fully equipped ICT suite, a library, a music studio, science labs, art and design studio, and two staffrooms. For recreational purposes, the students enjoy two swimming pools, a large football pitch, a basketball/volleyball/badminton court, table tennis court, a sand pit and an indoor play area for the younger children.
What are the pick-up procedures?
Two collection cards are issued per family. These collection cards must be presented to the staff on duty before a child can be picked up. Children will not be released to anyone without a collection card. If there is any doubt about the person picking up a child, parents are contacted on the phone number submitted to the school to verify the identity of the person attempting to pick up a child.
Are there after school activities for the children?
Yes there are. A wide range of after school activities are available each academic term and they usually run for 8 – 10 weeks. Kindly visit the Co-curricular section on our website to get more information on the list of after school activities offered.
What happens if a family leaves the country and still want to continue with the school upon their return?
The relevant Head of School will interview returning students, alongside their parents. They would also need to present copies of their most recent results from their last school. Once deemed eligible to continue, they would be invoiced for the current fees, and would resume with the school as at when due.
