Our Approach

Approach to learning

At ISL Surrey we believe in an enquiry-based approach to learning where all learning experiences are personalised, making it possible for us to nurture the talents of every child.

We map individual pathways to ensure that our students are challenged and also supported when needed.

Small classes and a highly flexible approach allows us to develop different avenues for different children.

Our children find their own ways to explore their learning through deep questioning and sustained shared thinking. Throughout their time with us we focus on the development of critical thinking skills, so that our children have the rigour and resilience for the challenges of an ever-changing future.

We provide a tailored transitions programme for the move to secondary school, running individual sessions with parents and students. These sessions tackle school selection, the application process and testing preparation where needed.

At the heart of ISL Surrey is our Global Thinking mindset.
