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.

Our Kensington school offers the IB’s Primary Years Programme and is attended by approximately 210 children aged 3 to 11, who are from almost 40 countries. English is the language of instruction, with Spanish as the school’s second language, which is taught from the age of five (Kindergarten) upwards. English as an Additional Language is also offered from Kindergarten upwards.

Our Kensington campus consists of two adjoining Victorian villas located in the stunning Notting Hill area of London. Facilities include an IT lab, a music room and two sound-proofed practice rooms, as well as a hall which is used for many purposes, including lunches, sport, school ‘town meetings’ and concerts.

The school also features a library, which is regularly attended by students from Early Childhood to Grade 5, to develop their literacy and research skills. We also encourage students to borrow books and other resources. And we provide all students with individual access to digital devices to support their learning, as well as utilise Google Drive so students can collaborate on projects easily.

Children attending our Kensington campus also have the opportunity to use a dedicated sports centre, which is a 15-minute bus ride away. It features a large sports hall, climbing wall and dance studio. These are perfect for our wide programme of sports and activities for PYP students.
