ESK students are remarkably busy; their day begins at 8:30am and includes learning from specialist teachers, socialising with friends in the café and gardens, and enriching their minds with forward-thinking activities beyond the traditional classroom. Each day there is an abundance of events and learning with many cheerful faces buzzing through the halls of the school.
At ESK, a focus on academic performance is vital, as well as developing talents and identifying passions, through the world of extra-curricular offerings. The ESK family environment is fostered by the best possible Pastoral Care for students, through all staff members. With small class sizes, students have more one-on-one time with teachers and create a trust that allows students to tackle life challenges. All classes, with the exception of modern foreign language subjects, are taught in English.

BEYOND THE CLASSROOM
Extra-curricular activities are an important part of school life. Students are guided and encouraged to take part in activities they have not tried before, introducing them to new challenges, passions and skills. We offer both extra-curricular and super-curricular activities. Super-curricular activities are more specialised and targeted towards the future university and career plans of students, giving them a competitive edge when applying to university and beyond.
"Being a student at ESK was more than just studying. It makes you feel like you are at home. My favorite thing about ESK is the close relationships that are developed with both the students and the teachers. ESK means family for me. I'm so lucky to be an ESK graduate. Thank you for everything."
