WHY BOARD AT SISD?
There are countless benefits offered to a young person who becomes a boarder at SISD. Boarding provides an excellent transition from home to independence and it helps to build the self-discipline that is beneficial for life at university and the workplace. The nurturing environment offered at SISD encourages our boarders to develop into healthy, mature, emotionally intelligent and responsible young individuals.
CAMPUS AND FACILITIES
The school campus is a truly extraordinary space in which students will live, learn and grow. The boarding houses are positioned in a luxurious, state of the art campus which aims to stimulate our boarders’ curiosity and creativity. Filled with natural light, our spacious boarding houses, classrooms, libraries, laboratories, music and theatre spaces are all designed to inspire and engage young minds.
The welfare of our boarders is of the greatest importance, as parents have entrusted us to guide, nurture and develop their child to become a mature and healthy young adult. Leaving home can be an emotional time for a young person and their parents, but our experienced boarding staﬀ will ensure that every boarder feels safe, well-integrated and happy.
There are many things that make SISD a truly exceptional school. SISD is the only school in the region which oﬀers boarding to students wishing to study the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme. It is becoming increasingly evident that an IB education is the global gold standard in a context where children see their futures expanding beyond national borders.
