A tradition of excellence

Sir James Henderson and the other founding members of the Sir James Henderson School shared a vision which continues to drive the school forward today: to provide a high-caliber British education in Milan in a truly international environment. The school continues to strive for excellence in academics, music, art, sports and community service while providing students the opportunity to advance themselves in every field. Students also grow as individuals and develop a strong sense of who they are and of their capabilities. SJHS gives its students a solid foundation for pursuing their university studies in the country of their choice, be it the UK, Italy, the US or elsewhere.

A tradition of community spirit

The SJHS is a community that embraces students from many diverse backgrounds and cultures. Everyone is linked by the shared commitment to learning and the desire to achieve excellence. Each member of the SJHS community plays a critical role in creating the school’s unique atmosphere and character:
  • Teachers and staff create a stimulating and supportive atmosphere
  • Parents and teachers work together to spread school spirit through the work of The Friends
  • The House system and the Student Council in both the Lower and Upper Schools allow students to play an active role in carrying on school traditions and fosters a sense of community.
  • Musical events and Sports Department activities create contagious school spirit and give students the opportunity to travel to other schools to perform and compete.
