Welcome to RIS

A Leading International Baccalaureate School in Rome

Mr Graham Thompson, Headteacher at Rome international School

Welcome to our school website. I am proud and privileged to be the Headteacher of RIS. 

Established in 1988, our school offers an unparalleled and inclusive international education that prepares students to solve problems that have not yet been imagined and to work in jobs that may not yet exist.  

Based on the ethos of the International Baccalaureate, our approach fosters curiosity and instills a love of learning by placing students at the centre of the learning process. 

Exceptional teaching combined with a holistic approach and personalised care ensures that every child achieves their full potential, both academically and personally. 

An inquiry-based learning approach starts from the very first days of school in Nursery helps students to be active learners, who are able to personalise content and make it meaningful to them. 

Students who complete the learning journey at RIS move on to attend universities of their choice worldwide. They will have established a personal set of values that will lay the foundation for international mindedness and critical thinking to develop and flourish. 

Joining RIS means joining an extended international community. 

We are a member of the Globeducate ICS family of schools, united by a vision to prepare each student to become a global citizen who can shape the world.

An extensive outdoor education programme and diverse events hosted by the Globeducate family offer exciting opportunities beyond the classroom and provide an enriched learning experience and the opportunity to make international connections.

The strength of our school lies in the open relationship and cooperation between students, staff and parents. I encourage you to come visit us. This is the best way to see the many reasons that makes RIS such a unique place for you and your family.

Graham Thompson, 
Headteacher
