Values and vision
IBS supports the values and beliefs of Islam but also fosters a truly international community within the school, striving to support the less able and challenge the most able pupils. The school wishes for every individual to reach their full potential. At IBS a child can gain British qualifications which are recognised internationally and can be a passport to a place at a good university.
Each individual will learn to be polite and show respect to others, learn to work in a team and collaborate with others and develop a strong set of values. All children will learn to take responsibility for their own learning and set themselves development goals. All children will develop their confidence and thrive in a culture of high expectations.
