Welcome to Knewton International School

The world around us is changing faster than we can imagine, from health to available careers and opportunities. Great schools can change lives, and our responsibility as a great school stretches beyond academic enrichment to nurture and empower students to become the best they can be.

Our aim is to make learning a buzzing, joyful and lifelong experience. Knewton International School is proud to follow the highest standards of the English educational system, following International Primary Curriculum (IPC) to International General Certificate of Secondary Education (iGCSE).

Student Wellbeing

We focus on the thing that matters most – your child’s welfare. Our young people flourish because they are treated with care, kindness and respect. We take the time to nurture positive mental health, good physical health and the social wellbeing of each young person in our care.

We take full precautionary measures to ensure the best hygiene standards throughout the campus. We want our students to feel happy and safe so they can concentrate fully on learning and getting better.

As well as a Head of Pastoral, all teachers take responsibility through the tutor group and Personal Social Health and Emotional (PSHE) programmes. All students are assigned to a House, each of which has a House captain. We provide lots of opportunities for  students to mix together across schools and year groups, with older pupils acting as buddies for the younger children.

Knewton Learning

Every moment is focused on supporting our students to get better. Students thrive with our vibrant classrooms, caring support and innovative teaching methods.

We’re agile in our teaching and learning and the whole campus has adapted to digital learning methods to ensure learning never has to stop. We’re focused on delivering a rich, interactive, and adaptive learning experience – whether on campus, or if we need to, from a distance.

Our team of well qualified and motivated staff have high expectations of themselves and the students. All of our teachers, no matter how many years’ experience, are on a continuous professional development pathway so our students benefit from the most up to date learning methods.

Knewton International Primary School (Age 5 - 11)

A buzzing learning environment awaits everyone at Knewton International Primary School, where we follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).

The IPC sets out clear learning goals for every subject and emphasises personal learning and international mindedness, in an exciting and challenging way.

Children develop knowledge in a wide range of subjects and grow an enquiring and global mindset and a sense of nationality and culture.

Learning in Primary School focuses on the following core subjects:

  • English Language
  • Math
