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 and historic 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.

At our Hampstead Campus, we offer the IB’s Primary Years Programme. Our Hampstead campus is a purpose-built school located in one of London’s leafiest suburbs and attended by approximately 210 students. English is the language of instruction at the school, with Spanish as its second language, which is taught from Kindergarten upwards. English as an Additional Language is also offered from Kindergarten upwards.

Our Hampstead school features excellent facilities and has recently been named an Apple Distinguished School. This includes a vibrant library that houses an abundance of learning resources. As well as being visited regularly by all PYP students, the library often hosts visits from authors and storytellers.

The school has recently been named an Apple Distinguished School, and features a Mac IT suite to complement our innovative 1-1 device programme; a well-equipped music room that houses a range of percussion instruments as well as providing a performance space; and a bespoke, light and airy art room.

We’re also particularly proud of our edible courtyard. It offers a quiet space for vegetable and flower growing, as well as birdhouses and a bug hotel. Students also have easy access to a dedicated sports centre, which is a 15-minute bus ride away. It features a large sports hall, climbing wall and dance studio. Plus, Hampstead Heath, one of London’s largest and most popular open spaces, is very close by.
