Leadership Team

The ISC community is defined by its focus on collaboration, challenge and care.  We understand that every interaction is a teachable moment, a moment where our students can develop academically, socially and emotionally.  We work tirelessly to develop our students’ capacity to think critically and to take responsibility for their learning over the course of their time at ISC, and we focus on building relationships that see students grow in confidence and help them to make a positive contribution to their community.  It is a pleasure to lead such a fantastic team of educators at ISC and I have every confidence that together with our ISC parents, we will continue to provide the students in our care with every opportunity to benefit from an IB education.

"Being part of the International School of Como community means everything to me.  Our students demonstrate the IB Learner Profile in multiple ways and prove that they are action takers on the local and global stage.  It is a pleasure to be part of their learning journey and to see them flourish as individuals and part of a community of learners.  The students sitting in our classrooms are the change-makers of the world, with minds which will create and shape the future and it is a privilege to be part of their Primary Years education"




Karen Lockett                                                                                    MYP Coordinator

"Our students are central to everything we do at ISC and our aim is to develop them individually into responsible, confident and principled students. To guide our students to be internationally minded, global citizens who welcome diversity and display compassion will create a generation to build a more peaceful world. This is why I believe in the IB, why I am devoted to ISC and why I am also educating my daughter at ISC"

The IB Diploma Programme continues the international ethos of IS Como and builds on the IB philosophy from both the PYP and MYP Programmes. Our DP students are taught by an experienced and enthusiastic team of subject specialists, who support our students, not just through the programme, but also prepare them for higher education and beyond. Our student-centred approach allows our students to develop and achieve in a caring environment, whilst being supported to achieve their full potential. Students develop core skills such as communication, collaboration and leadership through the various CAS (Community, Action & Service) programmes facilitated by the school, which also serve to build a sense of empathy towards the local community and the world around us. I am proud of our DP students at IS Como and enjoy taking the learning journey with them, through the challenges and successes of the Diploma Programme.
