Christine Simmonds

Principal

I am delighted to serve as the principal and ensuring success for Nibras and most importantly, your children.

As part of the International Schools Partnership (ISP) family, NIS is dedicated to ensuring that every child experiences ‘Amazing Learning’. I want you to literally ‘be amazed’ by the learning and progress made by your child, and it goes without saying that they need to amaze themselves with what they can achieve.

In order to continue and improve upon our recent successes my focus as principal is to provide co to your, consistency, communication and collaboration to you as partners in our students’ learning.

Jason Milner

Head of Middle School

Our middle school requires dedicated leadership to ensure the curriculum and learning meet the needs of students in early adolescence. This is a time when young people test boundaries, prefer socialising to learning and do not always understand the consequences of their actions on their futures. We have appointed Jason Milner, formerly a successful deputy head in the region, to be our Head of Middle School. Jason has high level expertise in digital learning and mathematics and is well-equipped to lead learning improvements in this phase.
