School 2 is an intimate school with a real ‘family-feel’
Children at School 2 are encouraged to be a part of our school community, where they work for each other in our ‘school house system’ or become involved in wider school issues through participation in the school council.

This is because we are a school which encourages and nurtures children so that they may lead full, worthwhile lives as confident, balanced members of their communities.

UK DfE Accredited British Schools Overseas: ‘Outstanding’ for every category

We are a UK Department for Education accredited British Schools Overseas, where UK school inspectors compared our standards to those of independent schools in England – at the conclusion of this rigorous inspection we achieved ‘outstanding’ grades for every category www.gov.uk/guidance/british-schools-overseas-inspection-scheme

What makes us special?

School 2 is a community school – there is a strong ‘family’ feel to us. Staff know the children well and older children are encouraged to care for the younger children.

Our pupils develop and hone their learning skills in a positive atmosphere where independence is instilled from an early age. Children’s self-esteem and sense of self-worth are promoted through a well-developed reward system and frequent opportunities to take responsibility.

Socially, pupils develop by having opportunity to learn about different cultures and get to know different children from around the world as well as take part in regular concerts and performances to develop their creativity and confidence.

Classes are taught exclusively in English, and children new to English receive extra support in smaller groups using specialist teachers. Our education combines high academic expectations with a broad, rich and creative curriculum. There is continuity and progression, challenge and pace.

Furthermore, underpinning our creative curriculum are the basic skills of reading, writing and mathematics. These are taught in depth and have a central place in our curriculum delivery by using and applying them through interesting contexts.


Clubs
A wide variety of extra-curricular activities are also offered. There is a comprehensive list of clubs and activities that children can attend after-school every day of the week, they range from extra-Russian lessons to fencing, choir practice to drama.

Resources
The school has access to excellent indoor facilities for sports. The sports hall is spacious and well equipped for physical education lessons. Modern resources are used to aid children’s learning with interactive whiteboards in every classroom. The concert hall, located in the school 7 building, is used for many purposes; whole school events, lectures, assemblies and concerts.

The school also has a dedicated computing suite and music room facilities where children can improve their skills.
