Welcome to our Primary School

It is a pleasure to welcome you to our school. We are committed to providing a safe, secure and happy environment where our 300 students from over 30 countries learn together in an atmosphere of mutual regard, respect and international mindedness.

We aim to support the development of all children emotionally, physically and intellectually. Classes are predominately taught by one class teacher so that students build up good relationships with those who encourage and guide them. In addition, specialist teachers and support staff add quality and depth to our programmes.

Our curriculum is derived from the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), Cambridge Primary Programme (CPP), current research and the best practices from around the world, in order to provide our students with the best possible holistic education. The language of instruction is English and we cater for a wide range of student needs including those who are learners with English as an Additional Language (EAL), students with specific learning difficulties and those who are ‘able, gifted and talented’. Furthermore, we encourage all of our students to become bold, positive and proud whilst hoping that they take advantage of the variety of opportunities that the Primary Section provides – so they learn to be a citizen of the world.

Parents are important to our school and we believe that establishing positive and effective home-school partnerships is vital for our students, your children. As such, we actively encourage and expect all our parents to be partners in their child’s education and also in the wider life of school. Good communication is a key to this, and information about what is going on in a student’s class can be found here on this website or in the weekly newsletters we send home - and of course personal visits are always welcome.

Whether your child is coming from Leipzig International Kindergarten or another school, taking their first steps away from home or preparing to move onto their next phase of education in our Secondary School or elsewhere around the world; their time in the Primary School is very special. We are proud of our commitment to making their experience during their time with us intrinsically rewarding and positive.
