Southbank International School is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School for 2-18 year olds with campuses in Hampstead, Kensington and Westminster in Central London. We are the first school in the UK authorised to offer all three International Baccalaureate programmes. For over 40 years, Southbank has been at the forefront of providing internationally relevant, world class education.
Primary Years Programme (2-11 years old)
Based at our Hampstead and Kensington campuses, the Primary Years Programme focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is defined by six transdisciplinary themes of global significance, explored using knowledge and skills derived from six subject areas, with a powerful emphasis on inquiry-based learning.
Facilities at Hampstead include: A dedicated hands-on STEM lab for science, technology, engineering and maths activities; A music room with a range of percussion instruments and performance space. From the age of 5 every child learns to play the violin using the Suzuki method, learning to play through sound rather than reading music; A bespoke art room with a wide range of materials for hands-on creativity; A multi-purpose hall for lunches, sport, school 'town meetings' and concerts; A vibrant, well-stocked library, which is regularly attended by students to develop literacy and research skills; An edible courtyard that offers a quiet space for vegetable and flower growing, as well as birdhouses and a bug hotel; An attractive, bright and spacious Early Childhood suite (for students aged 2-5) with access to a dedicated outside play area with sand and climbing frame.
