IPS will be a school that is recognized for academic and extracurricular excellence, and where every child matters.


Our mission is to provide our students the skills required to become successful citizens of a knowledge-based global community.

Our Core Values

Our School Values are non-negotiable and central to all that we aspire to achieve as an academic institution. They guide our management and staff in all academic and operational practices and the members of the school community – students, teachers and staff – in their conduct at all time. We believe that instilling these values into our student is as important, or more, as ensuring their academic success. We endeavor to do this by incorporating them into our curriculum, during assemblies, through our points system, newsletters, value-focused displays and competitions.

As the school approaches its Fiftieth Anniversary, we renew our commitment to adhere to our Founder’s principles by capturing them in our School Values.

Our Philosophy

Our strategy for achieving our vision is encapsulated below. These guidelines, underpinned by our values, will define all our actions and goals.

  • Be uncompromising in pursuing the highest standards of education and constantly review and upgrade our curriculum.
  • Ensure our core values of truth, excellence and kindness are integrated into every aspect of our school life.
  • Design and implement a curriculum that covers all key aspects of student development: academic, creative, artistic, cultural, physical, emotional and moral.
  • Avoid rote and routine methods of teaching; provide every child opportunities for exploration and discovery.
  • Ensure our labs and library are accessible and supplied well-above the needs of the curriculum to provide students the resources to become creative and critical thinkers.
  • Expect high standards of behaviour from the students, teachers and the staff; define a considerate framework of routines, boundaries and rules to foster them.
  • Encourage the pursuit of excellence by example, and through constant feedback and benchmarking.
  • Constantly encourage each child to be a producer and not just a consumer of knowledge and positive actions.
  • Avoid a disciplinarian culture and involve students in decision-making, governance and service to promote leadership and teamwork.
  • Ensure the school is fun and vibrant with curricular and extra-curricular activities throughout the academic year.
  • Remain a medium-sized school that is small enough to ensure each student has an identity and large enough to provide experiences that prepare them for leadership and success in their lives.
  • Recognize that the welfare, training and motivation of our dedicated and caring staff are key to our success.
  • Recognize that the home is the greatest influence on the child’s success and welcome each student’s parents to partner with the school to ensure the best outcome for their child.
