Welcome from the Director

On behalf of our entire school community, it is my pleasure to extend a very warm welcome to the International School of Hannover Region (ISHR). Whether you are a prospective family, student, teacher, alumni, external organisation or you are simply curious to find out more about ISHR’s 28-year history and the outstanding, inclusive and innovative international education that we provide, then you have come to the right place. Thank you for taking the time to find out more about our incredible school.

Our vision is simple but powerful. We strive for all of our students and members of our school community to “Belong, Learn and Thrive”. This vision drives all that we do at ISHR and embodies what it means to be a part of our school community. This vision and philosophy also aligns with that of the International Baccalaureate (IB) and we are one of a small but influential number of international schools in Germany to offer the highly regarded Continuum of the IB programmes to all students from age three through to graduation in Grade 12.

Our curricular and co-curricular programmes develop students who are global citizens intent on building a better world through a deep understanding of the academic disciplines, and how that knowledge and understanding can be applied to address complex problems. Thus, educational excellence at ISHR is intrinsically intertwined with joy, creativity, passion, determination, integrity and empathy.

Our internationally accredited and renowned education prepares our students to successfully access the next phase of their educational journey and, post-grade 12, their college or university of choice. Every year our graduates are offered places at prestigious institutions in Germany, UK, US, Canada, Netherlands and beyond!

Education is a team sport and we are fortunate to have a phenomenal group of experienced and dedicated teachers and administrators from around the world working with our students. Our parents, the PTA, School and Supervisory Boards and our local and international partners also play a crucial role in ensuring that ISHR continues to go from strength to strength. We are a school who is ready to embrace the challenges of the future without losing sight of our community, our context and our vision.

We are immensely proud of ISHR and I hope that our website gives you a glimpse into what makes our school unique. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have further questions or contact our Admissions team if you would like to arrange a visit to our beautiful campus in the heart of Hannover.

I look forward to welcoming you and your family to ISHR!

John Barker
