Development, both academic and personal, lies at the heart of Alexanders International School’s ethos. It empowers students to cope with cultural, linguistic and ethnic differences, which many of them are facing for the first time. Established in 1975, the school is part of the SKOLA Group of Schools. It offers foundation courses every term, as well as one and two year GCSE courses with high-quality tuition in English. Alexanders aims to prepare its students for further education in schools, colleges or universities in the UK or other countries.
Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Alexanders is one of the UK’s most important Boarding Schools and it strives to create an enriching atmosphere for the students, both academically and personally. The school also organises many school events and activities in which the students may participate throughout the year. This allows them to develop their team-work skills, self-confidence and discipline. A dedicated team of full-time coaches encourages students to balance the academic curriculum with physical activity and offer the opportunity to participate in unfamiliar sports, such as golf, mountain-biking, sailing and rugby.
Students from more than 70 countries attend the school, merging to create a vibrant and diverse community that is nourished by the faculty and staff members. Students can flourish here in a safe, happy and nurturing environment. Countries, cultures and faiths are celebrated in an environment of understanding and tolerance. Students can join the school at the age of 11 and stay until the age of 17. In this time, the faculty helps them to prepare for their residential IGCSE exams and gain admission to colleges and universities across the UK.
