Brighton, 9th June, 2010: The success of international schools
is dependent on their commitment to both the academic performance of
their students and the social environment that they nurture and create
for them. Alexanders International School continues to strike this
balance as they enter the summer months.
The month of May saw a number of sports competitions at Alexanders - the most recent
was an athletics event with the International Community School of London. Students
were encouraged to participate in sprint-racing, javelin, discus, long-jumping and
Apart from the athletics competition, in May, Alexanders also threw a dodgeball
charity fundraiser and a karaoke night. Additionally, they can be proud of their
students who are participating in the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh Award programme.
May has seen the completion of one of these students’ requirements for the Bronze
level. The Duke of Edinburgh Award allows them to engage with their community,
commit to physical fitness and get involved in the world around them.
Coupled with this, Alexanders continues to value and monitor a high standard of
academic performance from its students. The aim of the curriculum continues to be
preparation for entrance into university, and other higher level education
programmes across the UK, and increasing their fluency in the English language. With
more than 70 countries represented in the student body, Alexanders seeks to nurture
a broader cultural diversity and to assist its students in the frequently daunting
task of adjusting to a new country and environment.
These two aspects of the school help students become well-rounded individuals, who

It should be the aim of all boarding schools to provide their students with life
skills - the skills to succeed in a job and in their social and personal lives. The
friendships and acquaintances that are made in the classroom and on the field mirror
adult life - they require students to respond reasonably and solve problems.
Alexanders International School will
carry its commitment to its students' academic and personal development through
into the month of June and beyond.
