Throughout Primary we follow the globally renowned International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme.

This curriculum framework focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, harnessing their natural curiosity and creativity.

This extends beyond the school walls and provides a well-rounded, challenging, and meaningful education for all students, regardless of their background.

Come and visit us with your child and find out what it means to be part of ISZN Primary.


ISZN offers a creative and stimulating learning environment that encourages the holistic development of the individual learner.

Our aim is to equip students with the knowledge, skills and understanding to navigate an ever-changing complex world and to develop a community of lifelong learners. Our belief is in an internationally minded approach through learning experiences which connects students to the global and local community.


The PYP is an international curriculum framework designed for children between the ages of 3 and 12 years, taught through guided inquiry and concept-based teaching and learning approaches.

The program focuses on the development of the whole learner, so in addition to academic achievement, the program strongly emphasises the social, physical, emotional, and cultural growth of all students.

Whether native speakers or complete beginners, all pupils in the Primary School receive German language lessons. Classes are small and proficiency grouped, meaning that pupils make rapid progress regardless of the starting level.
