Norbert Foerster is SISD’s  new Head of School.
Norbert took up his position in August 2018 having previously been Head of the Institut International de Lancy in Geneva, Switzerland.

Before joining SISD, Norbert held numerous educational leadership positions spanning more than three decades. He started his career as a psychologist at a Catholic Center for Children and Adolescents, after which he spent 13 years between 1985 and 1998 as the director of a Psycho-Educational Counseling Center in Germany, in which he worked with children and families, as well as conducting counseling for parents, teachers, and educators.

In 1998, Norbert was appointed Director-General of Institut International de Lancy. Over a span of twenty years, he developed the school from a French Programme School to an IB World School teaching 1500 students.

Between 2006 and 2014, he held the position of President of the Geneva Association of Private Schools (AGEP) and in 2014 he became President of the Swiss Federation of Private Schools (SFPS).

Throughout his career, Norbert also enjoyed teaching German and speaking at a variety of international school conferences.

Norbert’s expertise as an educational leader, specifically in Swiss schools with international and bilingual backgrounds, make him a perfect fit to take the reins of SISD’s future.
