Student Life

The House System

At IEGS we have introduced a house system adapted from the British model. The House System fosters a strong sense of community and belonging.

Community and belonging.

The house system fosters a strong sense of community and belonging. House life at IEGS is an integral part of the daily running of the school. Teachers and students are assigned to a house, which forms the basis for group activities, mentor time, assemblies and competitions. It's a space where everyone can flourish and grow, creating a strong sense of identity within the school that encourages friendship, support commitment, loyalty and dedication. It is also fun!


We promote intercultural understanding and respect as an essential part of twenty-first century life. IEGS promotes education and knowledge as a way of engaging with the world and the community, helping students to find the balance between striving for individual expression and group responsibility.

By accepting differences and showing generosity to those around us we create an atmosphere of collegiality and respect, preparing individuals to become responsible members of a democratic society.

Education at IEGS trains students as world citizens who understand and respect different cultures. We encourage students to actively participate in their local community as well as the global community by helping those less fortunate than themselves. The ability to see others and the awareness of global issues is woven into the entire curriculum at IEGS.

Competition and teamwork.

At IEGS each programme belongs to one of the four houses: Pavlov, Russell, Curie, and King. Students remain part of this house for the duration of their time at IEGS. Each floor in the school is dedicated to a house, promoting house spirit and teamwork. Students can take part in different events from competitions to events and clubs. There is also the opportunity for students to take on leadership type roles and lead within the houses.
