School Paragraph Founded in 1972, ISL London is a co-educational school for students age 3-18. An International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, ISL London offers the Primary Years (PYP) and Middle Years Programmes (MYP) as well as the IB Diploma. The IB programmes combine intellectual rigour and high academic standards with a strong emphasis on the ideals of international understanding and responsible citizenship.

ISL was one of the first schools in the UK to offer the IB diploma. The recent graduates achieved a 100% pass rate, well over the 2010 worldwide average of 77.8%. Additionally, the average score of 31 was well over international averages and the percentage of bilingual diplomas at 71% is more than double the worldwide average of 30%.

Mother tongue language and literacy is an integral part of the curriculum and from Kindergarten through Grade 12 with students being offered between four to seven lessons per week depending on their grade level. Non-English speaking students are given support through Intensive English or English as an Additional Language (EAL) depending on student need.

Situated in Chiswick, West London, the School was purpose-built in the 1930s and has been refurbished with a library, science laboratories, kitchen, dining hall and multi-purpose auditorium.
ISL Surrey is a coeducational day school currently for students aged 2 to 13 but growing a year at a time towards the International Baccalaureate Diploma by 2015.

Although the language of instruction is English, home language literacy is supported from an early age. Beginning with the three-year-olds, five class periods of home language lessons are provided each week within the class day.
