Careers at SMMIS

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. 

Our school is a unique place that has a warm, family and community feel, with a focus on student wellbeing and child centered education.  We are driven by our vision to better the world through a first-class education imbued with Jewish values. We have a commitment to academic excellence, a moral purpose, and a commitment to charitable giving and community involvement. We encourage our students to develop a social conscience, a belief in a Growth Mindset, and to become a mensch – a good person.  

We teach our students a love of learning, we guide their hearts towards truth, and encourage them to build meaningful ties with all.

Education at SMMIS

SMMIS seeks to inculcate not just the knowledge that our students will need but also the learning habits, values and attitudes that will guide them as they journey towards becoming responsible young men and women with something to give back to our world. This begins with our progressive IPC/ IMYC based curriculum, which emphasises academic rigour across a comprehensive number of teaching subjects, balanced by thoughtful and empathetic instruction that values character-building, emotional growth and creative collaboration. We also teach the British National Curriculum Literacy, Singapore Maths and iGCSE.
