My daughters used to go to an international school, the change from the ib system to the british one was very smooth for both of them, teachers are great, all are native english-speakers, most of the staff are young and enthusiastic. I must say that St.George has one of the most lovely head-teacher, she is always involved with the children, listens to the children, and is always open to help an individual if she/he feels unhappy.
