For students studying in KS3 and IGCSE, classes will not exceed 25. Students, and AS/A2 Level classes will not exceed 15 students per subject. Should the school receive more applications for a year group which is at full capacity, those applicants will be placed on a waiting list for that particular class providing the enrolment paperwork has been completed. Once a place for a student is made available, the place will only be held if the registration fee has been paid. Priority will be given to applicants whose sibling(s) is/are already enrolled at ISSR.
For routine matters relating to academic progress and classroom activity, parents should bring their concerns to the attention of the classroom teacher. Parents are asked to make an appointment outside of classroom time. This can be done over the telephone with the office or in person before or after the tuition times. If for any reason it is felt that concerns have been insufficiently addressed an appointment may then be made via the office to speak to the Principal.
Parents are not permitted to enter classrooms during the school day for this or other purposes without prior appointment with the class teacher, or without being accompanied by a member of the administration or teaching staff. For all other questions not specifically of an academic nature please make an appointment to speak to the Principal or administration.
