The Primary school recently moved into a new purpose-built campus – the third time it has moved into new and expanded premises.

Our building houses classrooms for children from Nursery to Year 6. All classrooms are furnished to enable the teachers to comfortably teach our curriculum and include a wall mounted 43-inch monitor to enhance the children’s learning.

Class Sizes

The school aims for an average maximum class size from Nursery to Year 6 of 26 students.
Usually, each class will have the following teachers and assistants:

Nursery : 1 teacher and 4 TA’s
Reception 1 : 1 teacher and 3 TA’s
Reception 2 : 1 teacher and 2 TA’s
Year 1 -6 : 1 teacher and 1 TA

Should the school receive more applications for a class which is at full capacity, one or more of the following actions will take place.

a. The school will begin the process of sourcing a new teacher
b. An expatriate Teacher’s Assistant will be assigned to that class
c. The child/children will be put on a Waiting List for that particular class, providing the registration fee is paid.
Priority will be given to children whose siblings are already enrolled at ISSR.

We also have a 26-station computer lab for the children’s computing lessons from Reception to Year 6. Classes also use this facility during other subject times to enrich the children’s learning. Our playground is equipped with an early years sandpit for our younger children and a sun-protected play area with impact-absorbing rubberised surface, both of which the children get much enjoyment from, as well as getting some exercise whilst playing! To enhance our Physical Education Curriculum, the school has a 7-a-side football pitch and a separate volley-ball and basketball court. The students also enjoying playing on these during their free time. Our campus also has a 25 x 10 metre swimming pool for swimming lessons during our Physical Education times but also for swimming galas, charitable and community events.

International School of Siem Reap is accredited by Cambridge Assessment International Education, and provides students with a qualification accepted around the world. At ISSR we follow the British National Curriculum which offers a child centred, challenging and well-balanced curriculum for our pupils. The programme caters for the individual needs of all pupils allowing stimulation of the child’s interests and learning capabilities so they can realise their full potential. In addition we offer tuition of a modern foreign language.

This is all provided in a secure and safe environment in which we care first and foremost about our children and their educational progress. Our professionally designed programme of study with its built-in regular assessment steps using the British National Curriculum prepares children with the academic and social skills to become successful young adults. It also enables them to move on without difficulty should the parents’ employment take them to another part of Cambodia or to another country.
