Update from the Principal
Welcome to our new weekly newsletter!
Our intention is for this to be a regular form of communication with all our parents, in both the British and American schools. The Heads of each school will make a contribution, sharing with you information about key events and highlights of the week. We really do value stronger engagement with our parents and want to ensure you are kept well informed about the taught curriculum, assessments and wider student learning experiences. We are also about to launch a new platform in the British secondary school that will enable our parents to communicate directly with any subject teacher in a secure system, similar in that respect to Dojo in primary, but taking account of the different context of a secondary school.

Dear SRS Parents,
This week has been very productive! Expectations are high to ensure that every student is successful. We are in full swing in all classes, with daily routines, benchmark assessments, and rigorous student-led activities and lessons, which will turn into major projects. Every student has been given their curricular materials. It has also been good to see teachers and students getting into a routine of active instruction and peer collaboration in relevant lessons focused on real-world issues.
Thank you for allowing us to partner in your child’s education and for all your support!
