Message from the School Head


Westwood International School provides a quality international education that enables students to meet future challenges as confident, socially responsible, life-long learners.


Dear Reader,

Welcome to our website!

Our Mission Statement forms the core of all teaching and learning at Westwood International School (WIS), an International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) World Continuum School revolving around the Primary Years Program, Years Reception – 6, the Middle Years Program, Years 7 – 11, and the Diploma Program, Years 12 and 13.

An education at WIS draws on both global and local perspectives and emphasizes the need for a sustainable world, with the IBO curricular program centered on Enquiry and Concept-Based Academic Achievement, Attitudes, Transdisciplinary Skills, the Learner Profile and Action.

Proud as we all are of our students’ academic results, there is also much more to the education provided at WIS; whether it is in the classroom, on the stage, on the sports field or when serving others, our students also experience the excitement of discovering that, working both as a team member as well as independently, they are capable of achieving far more than they ever thought possible.

Combining challenging and enriching experiential experiences with academic rigor and creative opportunities, an education at WIS revolves around high expectations of our students – and our students, in turn, have high expectations of themselves.

It is a pleasure to work together with the entire WIS community as we create an environment of enriched teaching and learning and true development for all our students.


Yours sincerely,

Matthew Kirby

Head of School
