English has a unique position at ISH as it is a subject at the heart of the curriculum and is the language of instruction at the school.
We recognize and celebrate the cultural and linguistic diversity of our student body yet we are aware that proficiency in English is essential for academic success at the school. In order to meet the needs of students who enter the school with limited competence in English we offer a structured programme of EAL support. However, we also encourage students to continue tuition in their Mother Tongue. Advice and guidance can be obtained from the Mother Tongue Co-ordinator.
