School Overview: This is the largest international school in Vietnam and a leading international school in South East Asia. Educating more than 2000 students from over 50 countries it operates from three campus sites in the vibrant and exciting Ho Chi Minh City. The school offers Early Years Foundation Stage (2 years) through to Year 13 (17 years). They operate within the framework of the National Curriculum for England which is adapted to meet the needs of the international community through the use of the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). At Secondary level, students are prepared for both the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). The school provides an environment that is nurturing, academically stimulating and focused on developing the individual talents and strengths of each child. Students become confident, adaptable, polite, open-minded and tolerant individuals, who are inspired to become responsible and active global citizens.

Location Overview: Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is Vietnam's largest metropolis and its undisputed capital of commerce and thousands of expats and Vietnamese immigrants couldn't imagine living anywhere else. They've long since fallen prey to the hidden charms of one of Southeast Asia's liveliest cities. Ho Chi Minh City is fast becoming a favourite destination for both Asian and Western tourists who flock to the city in large numbers each year. The largest of Vietnamese cities, the old charm of Saigon has not given way to a modern, frenzied metropolis and it is somewhat like Bangkok must have looked and 'felt' like about 30 years ago!
