Key Staff

IBIS teachers are fully qualified to teach all general areas of our curriculum. Regular in-service training keeps IBIS teachers abreast of changes and refines teaching skills. In addition to class teachers there are teachers for German, Learning Development in support and extension, English as an additional language (EAL), swimming and music. There are currently 25 full-time and part-time teachers and 16 teaching assistants representing 11 different nationalities.

Parent surveys show that the staff are the warm heart of IBIS and that they are the reason why many families seek out the school. We enjoy a high reputation in the community and this is due to the dedication of all members of staff.
