School Life

Our student-centered approach and small class sizes ensures that each student receives individual attention and support to reach their full potential, attaining high levels of achievement in all areas allowing them to become independent, critical thinkers who are prepared to contribute positively to society.  Our students thrive academically, socially and emotionally and we are committed to providing a nurturing environment that supports the whole child. 

We offer a wide range of co-curricular activities such as sports, arts, and community service opportunities to help students develop a well-rounded personality.

International Baccalaureate - Curriculum

The International Baccalaureate is a world-renowned globally recognised educational program that promotes rigorous academic standards, international-mindedness, and the development of well-rounded, socially responsible students. 


The PYP prepares students for the intellectual challenges ahead of them and fosters a lifelong
love of learning. It provides a holistic approach to the curriculum design and places the child at the centre of the learning process.



The MYP is a five-year learning unit that students complete in Year 11. There are
eight different subject areas within the programme, all of which aim to develop well-
rounded individuals that have an awareness of the impact they  have on the world
around them.


The DP aims to develop students
who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge; students who flourish
physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically. The curriculum is made up of the
DP core and six subject groups. 


We understand that choosing the right school for your family is an important decision. At Fairview International School our dedicated Admissions Coordinator, Elaine Mackie, is ready to guide you through the admissions process and help you determine if Fairview is the right fit for your child and family.

We ensure that whatever year group your child joins, they are prepared, confident, and most importantly, happy as part of the Fairview family.

Our process is so simple and straightforward and we are here to help each step of the way. So, please get in touch to arrange a visit and find out more about us.

Parent Testimonial

“ Fairview's ethos, methods of teaching and the overall concept of the school's IB programme has significantly made a difference in my children’s desire to learn. This has given them the confidence to speak up and ask questions to expand their inquisitive minds further. 
Fairview was exceptional during the transition period of my youngest child from nursery to Y1. The staff at Fairview took time to get to know my child’s nursery setting and their staff, arranged settling-in sessions and tailored these sessions to suit the current needs of my child. The smooth transition facilitated by Fairview ensured that she felt safe, secure, and confident to begin her new journey into Y1.”

Parent Testimonial

"I'm very proud of my kids; their confidence has grown since coming to Fairview. They're taught to think critically and from multiple perspectives, and they are more self-assured in expressing their ideas and opinions in school and at home. I love to hear them engage in meaningful conversations with their peers and family members. They have learned how to approach problems with an open-minded and creative perspective."
