School Tour

British Section, SHAPE International School

Our school is an integral part of the SHAPE International School (SIS) and is situated on a large campus made up of 11 national sections with approximately 2,500 students overall.  Some sections cater for both Elementary (Primary) and Secondary age pupils. The British Section takes only those children of Primary school age (3 – 11 years). As such we benefit from shared facilities such as large playgrounds, SHAPE sports fields, tennis courts and swimming pool, in addition to our own discrete facilities including amongst others, generous sized classrooms for our younger pupils, garden areas, computing suite, music room, French room, Library and a large hall with a purpose built stage. 

We share our building with the Canadian Section.  Our shared spaces are the library and main hall, whilst all classes remain separate and they follow their Canadian curriculum.  However, we do have a shared ethos of the UK-CAN Promise a philosophy to promote a caring and respectful relationship within school.

The British Section is a one form entry Primary School (one class in each year group) with approximately 20 pupils in each class, although this does depend on families assigned to SHAPE. The numbers on roll are traditionally around 160 pupils. While FS2 (Reception class) Key Stages 1 and 2 are housed within the main school building in 701/702, the British Section operates a FS1 (Pre-school) for children aged 3-4 years within the International Kindergarten of SIS. This is a purpose built facility for young children and is situated approximately 300m from the British Section main building.

The British Section is part of MOD Schools which is part of the MOD. The English National Curriculum is taught and the school is also subject to regular Ofsted Inspections by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education. The school was last inspected in February 2014 and was described in the resulting report as "outstanding".

Please look through the photos for an idea of our facilities (click on the first one, a gallery will open). Obviously nothing compares to an actual visit where you can see for yourself the attractive learning environment, the calm focussed atmosphere and seeing the children enjoying their learning.

SHAPE International School New Building Project

SHAPE International School has benefited from significant investment as part of a commitment by the Allied Nations to NATO. The entire campus has been re-built in a multi-phase project costing approximately £130 million pounds. The result is a spectacular educational campus. The US School Sections have already been completed and the UK, Canadian and German Sections were finished in Summer 2018.   

The British Section share their new school with the Canadian school and the new school opened for use in August 2018.
