Welcome from the Headteacher

itle Graham Thompson Headteacher at Rome International School

Welcome to our school website. I am very proud and privileged to be the new Headteacher at Rome International School.

Our educational approach, based on the ethos of the International Baccalaureate, places students at the center of the learning process and inspires them to become responsible global citizens.

We teach students to think for themselves and give them every opportunity to succeed in the future, and to respect both fellow students and the world in which we live. 

Children of all nationalities and faiths are valued individuals. Our highly committed and
professional team of teachers aim to educate the whole child and enable every student to realise their full potential. Exceptional teaching and personalised care and attention ensure that every child flourishes both academically and personally.

Our teachers inspire a love of lifelong learning in our students, starting from their very first days of school in Nursery, all the way through to the university counselling and guidance they receive as they complete the High School programme and progress to universities of their choice.

We are the only international school in Rome authorised to offer the International
Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme
for students between the ages of 3 and to 11, and the IB Diploma Programme for High School students between the ages of 16 and 18.

Our status as a Cambridge International School allows our Middle School students between the ages 11 to 14, to  pursue a rich programme of study leading to the International General Certificate of Secondary Education for ages 14 to 16, as validated by Cambridge Assessment.

Our beautiful campus located in north-west Rome is resourced to the highest level and has been purpose-built to meet every learning and teaching requirement. We pride ourselves on the safety of all our children and a happy learning environment is always of utmost importance.

We are very proud of the fact that we are recognised by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) for achievement in sustainable development education and for continuously improving the environmental performance of the school and wider community.

The learning at Rome International School is enriched with a vast number of opportunities such as residential visits and trips to places of local interest. As a proud member of the NACE group of schools, we have been able to send students to a range of inter- school events such as the NACE Sports Olympics, model United Nations, a music festival and an arts competition to name but a few.

The strength of our school lies in the open relationship and cooperation between students, staff and parents. If you have the opportunity to visit us it would be our great pleasure to meet you and show you the many reasons that make Rome International School such a unique place for you and your child.
