The most important responsibility we have is to ensure that our students are well cared for and happy while at ISC.
We believe that our students will have a positive learning experience if they feel safe and content. We work hard to create a homely, caring atmosphere where students feel relaxed and happy to ask for help if they need it.
The British Council acknowledge that our student welfare and care of under 18s is an area of strength. We have very strict safeguarding procedures to protect our students. Jill, the course director is the designated safeguarding lead and all our staff are trained to deal with welfare and child protection issues.
Our office is open 8.30-22.00 every day and is staffed by experienced senior staff and trained first aiders. There is also a head of house and staff in all the boarding houses, who are happy to help at any time.
The course directors and senior management live on campus and our students and parents are given a 24-hour emergency number, so that they can contact them at any time.
First aid kits are kept in all the boarding houses. If our students feel ill, we have first-aid trained staff on site and a doctor and two hospitals nearby.
We have a very safe campus, with 24 hour security. The boarding houses close at 23.00 each evening until 06.00 the next morning, meaning students can only leave in an emergency.
Students only leave campus when they go on organised excursions and activities with our staff.
