‘What makes a good school?’ The obvious answer is a combination of the pupils, the teachers, the facilities and the curriculum. Just as each school is different, so too each child’s educational experience is unique reflecting their individual personalities. As a British school operating in an international setting the Sir James Henderson School strives to offer the very best of British education and provide opportunities for students to develop their talents and to discover new ones.

To thrive children need to be challenged and inspired - in the classroom, on the stage, on the sports field – as they in turn aspire to be the leaders and shapers of tomorrow. The SJHS has a tradition of academic success, embodies the best of British teaching practice and, as an IB World School, promotes the global aspirations that lie at the heart of the IB philosophy.

Important as they are for each child’s future, the School is about much, much more than academic results. The co-curriculum is an essential, core element of life in the school; students are as determined and ambitious performing in concerts or on stage, competing on the sports field, participating in the Duke of Edinburgh Award or supporting a plethora of community and charity projects as they are studying history, science or languages. Active participation in the extensive activities programme is the key to success in the classroom.

If you want to understand the Sir James Henderson School and its unique community you need to experience it. You are welcome to visit the School, to talk to the pupils and meet the staff, and to sample at first hand an environment for learning and personal development that is special for all those who study and work here.
