Our History

Cambridge International School was opened in 2006 by Dr. Daniel Sturdy and Dr. Harriet Sturdy. Inspired by their mother’s intuition and belief in progressive education – small class sizes, nurturing children to independence, a homely atmosphere – they built the Cambridge area’s first and only non-selective international school to provide stimulating education, value diversity and develop strength of character within an encouraging and supportive family atmosphere.


Cambridge International School now has students and staff from all over the world. We have students from 19 countries speaking over 13 different languages. It provides a stimulating and exciting education for children aged 11-16 in a truly diverse learning environment.


In 2015 Cambridge International School became part of the International Schools Partnership.


In 2019 the school was split with the Seniors reverting to Dr Harriet Sturdy and the Primary becoming Oaks International, owned by the International Schools Partnership.
