Welcome to the International School of Cape Town’s website!

We hope that as you delve into the different pages and links, you will learn more about the nurturing environment, community spirit and different experiences that await your child at ISCT. We hope that more than this, you will get a sense of who we are and what we believe in.

Being an international school rooted in its South African context has meant that our students thrive not only locally, but globally as well. Although our student body is predominantly South African, we have representatives from over 40 countries, offering a rich diversity of cultures and nationalities and equipping our alumni to be successful and adaptable global citizens. 

As one of the largest Cambridge schools in the country, offering the British curriculum from Nursery to A level since 1998, the school prides itself on consistently producing excellent academic results in a warm and supportive environment, incorporating the latest in teaching skills and technological innovation. 

Our core beliefs are:

  • That contemporary learning takes place within a challenging, nurturing and supportive environment.
  • That we are enriched by our diverse community which is why we are committed to creating a space in which we can all feel respected and where we can learn from and about each other. 
  • That we have a shared humanity that inspires us to develop people who are of good character and understand our ethical responsibility as local and global citizens. 

We hope that these beliefs and our values will be evident to you as you learn more about us. As the Principal of ISCT, I welcome you warmly to the school and look forward to engaging with you in the times ahead. Enjoy this virtual visit to our school.
