Our Vision

Bettering the world through a first-class education imbued with Jewish values.


To teach the love of learning, guide the heart towards truth, and build meaningful ties with all.

Sir Manasseh Meyer International School (SMMIS) is a not for profit, child centred school that offers a rigorous International Education, imbued with the vibrancy of Jewish values, tradition and culture. We are a diverse community that welcomes students of all denominations and those of other faiths.

Our educational philosophy is one that teaches resilience, collaboration, independence and perseverance. We are a smaller school by design which allows us to tailor learning to each child, enabling each child to flourish and reach their full potential.

Skills acquisition, knowledge and understanding, is at the heart of our teaching, giving the children the best possible start in life.

At SMMIS we have a strong ethical foundation and engender a commitment to social action, healing the world. Our children are encouraged to see themselves as global citizens, with charity and volunteering a strong aspect of school life.

We are a school with a strong internationally trained staff body, who ignite a passion for lifelong learning, creative thinking and inspire a curiosity in the world around us.
