The PYP prepares students to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others and have the capacity to participate in the world around them. It focuses on the development of the whole child. Age range: 3-12 (Source International Baccalaureate)


A challenging framework that encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world, the MYP is inclusive by design; students of all interests and academic abilities can benefit from their participation. Age range: 11-16 (Source International Baccalaureate)


Research suggests many benefits to choosing the DP. The programme aims to develop students who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge – students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically. Age range: 16-19 (Source International Baccalaureate)

Our school is an IB WORLD SCHOOL

In order to offer one or more of the International Baccalaureate® (IB) programmes of education, schools must complete an authorization process. Once they have been authorized, they are known as IB World Schools.

One strong academic language – English

Studies show that having one strong academic language helps students succeed at tertiary education (post-secondary).

Our commitment to sustainability

Sustainability is a key part of the way we run our school – now and in the future. For example we share the use of the local community’s state-of-the-art sports facilities. This benefits both ISOCS and the local community of Cham.

Thought leadership for the 21st century

ISOCS regularly invites captains of industry to visit us in order to work with our students and expose them to new trends and thought leadership, so that they too can become leaders in the 21st century.

A strong parent community at ISOCS

You can “hang out” with ISOCS parents in our “ISOCS Community Café”. Beverages are provided and you can chat and plan activities such as running, golfing, skiing etc.
