From the principal
"Welcome to Hartland International School.
"We care passionately – about excellent learning and teaching, about learning for life, about education – but most of all we care passionately about the children in our care.
"Hartland is a unique and vibrant place filled with the energy of inquisitive minds and the dynamics of individual characters.
"We strive for academic excellence in a well-disciplined, friendly and supportive community of over 60 nationalities which encourages all to succeed. We believe that if children feel happy and secure they will flourish and grow as individuals, whether through academic and pastoral engagement in the enriched curriculum during and after school, or through our focus on shared values and the Hartland Way.
"At Hartland, we understand that education is about guiding and supporting young people on a pathway of success: my staff and I are confident that each child in our care will unlock and realise that potential and indeed, aspire beyond with our support. We also recognise that education is a shared responsibility between family and school and we truly value the partnership that we forge with our parents."
