Primary School


The Primary School (Lower School) is a very popular, exciting and inclusive school dedicated to developing student capability through broad and balanced curriculum. We aspire for each of our students to achieve high standards of attainment, behaviour and values.


NIS offers a disciplined and caring environment where children have the optimal conditions for learning and developing their skills and interests. We are proud of the fact that our students are highly motivated and love coming to school. The students are at the forefront of everything planned within the department, as we constantly seek new opportunities to enhanced learning and learning experiences. The Primary School seeks to support student as they develop socially, emotionally and morally, as well as academically.



We want every child to be excited about coming to school each day and to leave having enjoyed their learning, and been challenged to acquire new skills. NIS Primary strives to develop the enjoyment of outdoor learning and hands-on learning experiences, both within the classroom and outside; promoting purposeful learning within our local, national and global community.


We are constantly striving to improve the quality of teaching across school through the provision of inspirational teaching and through a highly developed team ethos amongst our staff. Our highly effective teachers, are focussed on improving student outcomes, through their commitment to ongoing professional development, quality teaching, evidence based practices, coaching and mentoring and collaboration.
