Here at CIS our mission is to instil in our pupils a sense of inspirational and stimulating education. Our aim is to give them a proper sense of identity, built on intellectual curiosity, independence and inclusivity. Within a lively, creative and caring community we give our pupils the courage to become the very best person that they can be. Our school is a happy place with a strong family atmosphere, where friendship matters and where staff and pupils have a mutual respect for each other.
Set in beautiful in parkland in the historic city of Cambridge CIS is an energetic and happy place of learning with a genuine sense of community throughout. Each individual is highly valued and we base our exceptional level of pastoral care on courtesy, consideration for others and kindness. Through a spirit of tolerance and harmony we ensure that each pupil is happy, stimulated and inspired to achieve even beyond their own expectations. This is not a factory for learning; results are achieved through inspiration and curiosity, not pressure.
I would be delighted to personally welcome you to CIS. Please make an appointment to visit us so that you can experience our unique approach to learning and witness for yourself the sense of purpose and self-worth at the heart of everything that we do.
