It is a leading British international school in South East Asia preparing students for I/GCSEs, A levels and the IB Diploma.

JIS has almost 200 highly qualified teachers primarily from the UK but also from Australia, New Zealand. Language teachers are mother tongue language speakers from Europe, China and Brunei. We pride ourselves on providing an education that is not only academically challenging but also seeks to develop the whole student. Class sizes are small - maximum 22 students for Years 7-9 and usually smaller than this for Years 10-13.
The exceptional, purpose-built, fully WiFi and ICT networked school facilities occupy 120 acres of its 300 acre campus near the coast – a short drive from the capital city. Students can use the Arts Centre (725 seat auditorium, dance studio, smaller theatres and rehearsal rooms), 26 science laboratories, extensive music faculty , art, design and technology and textile studios, libraries and traditional classrooms as well as the 50m swimming pool, gymnasium, netball/basketball courts, tennis courts and 3 soccer/rugby pitches. A large Sports Complex with 8 lane x 25m swimming pool, fitness suite, 2 large Sports Halls and PE classrooms was opened in February 2017.
The Boarding facilities for students age 11 years + are purpose designed and built for the community of 280 full and weekly boarders. Boarders can also use the school facilities.
All students and teachers in the School are members of a House which provides a key role in providing opportunities for internal sports competition and other House Events. The Houses play a vital role in establishing the spirit of the School. A strong extracurricular programme exists with almost 300 activities on offer including a wide range of sports and arts activities, a well developed DoE (International Award) programme, Model United Nations, environmental groups and “Make A Difference” community programmes.
