ISP INTERNATIONAL LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS

At the International Schools Partnership (ISP), learning is at the heart of everything we do, and we aim to provide the best learning opportunities possible! As part of the student’s journey, we genuinely believe that it is essential they can experience learning outside of the classroom and connect with other ISP students worldwide.

As a global group of schools, our students have access to a broader international community, providing additional learning and cultural opportunities within a safe and secure environment. 

All of the programmes share several main objectives and aim to provide memorable experiences that enable our students to:

  • Develop their language and communication skills
  • Experience different cultures
  • Cultivate long-term friendships with students from other countries
  • Offer students the chance to come together and interact digitally

 

We are also dedicated to providing our students with the best learning experiences possible and all of our International Learning Opportunities focus on several of the key learning outcomes listed below:

  •  
To gain more knowledge of:

  • Foreign education systems and new subjects
  • Geography, History, Digital Media, STEAM
  • Different lifestyles, cultures and traditions
To develop their:

  • Language and communication skills
  • Soft skills including independence, organisation, responsibility, confidence, teamwork, leadership

To improve their understanding of:

  • Education and learning in a broader context
