Admissions

Coronavirus Information

Based on the World Health Organisation’s declaration that the coronavirus is a pandemic, we have decided to increase precautions within school, including in our Admissions processes.

If you would like to visit our school, please contact us via e-mail or phone before booking or attending.

Please bear with us during this time, as our primary concern is for the health and safety of our existing school community.

There is no better way to experience everything ISZN has to offer than a private tour.

Take the opportunity to meet our Head of Primary or Senior, get a detailed overview of our curriculum and ask any questions you may have.

You will be shown around the school so you can see for yourself the nurturing and innovative learning environment we have worked hard to create. We also welcome prospective students to participate in a trial day for a chance to feel immersed in their new school environment.
