Principal’s Welcome

A warm welcome from Dr Dirk Bennhardt, Principal

Our values are at the centre of everything we do. They guide our core purpose in helping our students discover and develop their talents to ensure they are ambitious, educated and responsible individuals who seek to make a positive contribution in the fast-paced, ever-changing world.

Our results speak for themselves, and our staff are dedicated to supporting and inspiring each individual to aim high and achieve their very best. We hold our school to the highest standards and our students leave GSIS ready to make the world a little bit better after a demanding course of university study. We are proud of our school’s reputation and long history as a high-achieving, responsible school for the German International Abitur (GIA) and International Baccalaureate (IB) school, yet we remain focused on preparing students, who are critical thinkers, to be enterprising young people who care about a sustainable world for the future.

There is so much to celebrate at GSIS - friendly, engaged and curious students, supportive staff who go the extra mile, and an exciting and challenging learning environment. I hope this introduction gives a flavour of what a GSIS education can offer in both the German International and English International Streams. Please come and visit us to find out more.
