Message from Head of School

“We are delighted to offer a curriculum based on the Finnish education system. Praised for its innovative curriculum and teaching methods, Finland is at the forefront of child-centred education. We focus on what and how a child learns rather than what is taught.

Children and young people learn best by doing, and the curriculum at VFIS encourages students to explore, communicate and take risks as they learn about the world. At VFIS, we nurture children’s natural curiosity and offer them a wide variety of subjects through which to develop the skills and confidence needed in the adult world.

At VFIS, we value balanced individuals who can look after themselves as well as others”
