Our International Middle School is a safe and happy learning environment for children from around the world.

Our school specialises in helping children adapt quickly to their new school and provides strong support for new starters.

Our language of instruction is English and our vibrant school community encourages learning English quickly.

Our school has a holistic and well-balanced learning program which combines core-curriculum subjects with plenty of extra-curricular activities and nurtures important social skills. 


Our SAIL curriculum combines the international education program of Cambridge and the mandatory local syllabus, enriched by elements of the national curricula within mother tongue education. The increasingly specialized subjects are provided by a number of qualified subject  teachers.

We provide the curricula "Cambridge Primary" for the lower classes and "Cambridge Lower Secondary" for the advanced classes of our middle school. These international curricula are used in over 160 countries around the world and part of the University of Cambridge.

Cambridge Lower Secondary provides a broad and balanced education for learners aged 11 to 14. With ten subjects to choose from, including English, mathematics and science, they find plenty of opportunities to develop creativity, expression and wellbeing in a variety of ways. 

Extracurricular Activities

At SAIL we provide pupils with the time and opportunity to explore their interests, discover their talents and develop their skills. Beyond the core curriculum subjects, our pupils have the chance, each day, to take part in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities which inspire, motivate and encourage pupils to be productive and use their time efficiently. A healthy balance of creative, sport and educational activities result in something of interest for everyone.

Time Table

SAIL International School uses the UK school timetable with 4 blocks of 80 minutes per day. Between the blocks there is sufficient time to have a break/eat lunch and move to the place of the next subject. Usually, not every 4th block is used for the curriculum. On some days, the last block is free for optional extracurricular activities, as well as the time until 5pm. For reasons independent from the school, the time table needs to be changed repeatedly in the beginning of the school year. Please ask the school secretary for the current version.

In the traditional educational model where teachers lecture head-on and students take notes, students get bored easily and are not very effective. STEAM education is a modern practice-oriented educational model for independent discovery and learning under the guidance of the teacher. Therefore, it will inspire learning to students, sparking creativity and passion in children. Originating in the US, STEAM education has been interested in and researched for many years, in countries around the world. SAIL International School applies this modern, interdisciplinary way of learning.

At SAIL, we recognise that the personal development of pupils, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally, plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. We therefore aim to apply SMSC education as a proved system used all over UK, that provides pupils with opportunities to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness, high standards of personal behaviour, a positive, caring attitude towards other people, an understanding of their social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of cultures.
