Mission & Values

Cambridge International School – A diverse and enriching educational experience

Mission Statement

CIS is a small, non-selective, international school whose aim is to provide a caring, inclusive, personalised and international education for pupils from the UK and around the world.

We believe that…

  • when children feel safe, valued and celebrated for who they are, they are more able to enjoy their learning, build their emotional resilience, cultivate a growth mindset, and develop confidence in themselves.
  • good relationships within a supportive community and in a nurturing environment will lead to students discovering their identity and achieving their potential.
  • students deserve opportunities to develop a passion for learning through a challenging curriculum, excellent extra-curricular provision, the use of trips both locally and internationally, and a purposeful and stimulating location.

CIS Values:
