From the Head of School

Message From the Head of School

I am very proud to be the Head of School at St. Michael’s International School having been appointed in 2012 following headships in both the Middle East and the UK. I have a particular passion for internationalism and I enjoy  the diversity which St. Michael’s and the city of Kobe offers.  St. Michael’s is the only accredited international school in Kansai offering a specialized Early Years and Primary education, where young learners thrive in a unique and caring environment.

For almost seventy five years, St. Michael’s International School has been one of the leading providers of international education in Japan and is the only accredited, International Primary Curriculum (IPC)  school in the country. The school has a long tradition of excellence and is often described as the small school with a large heart. A strong sense of partnership between school and the families we serve has been  nurtured throughout our long history, creating the supportive, happy, family orientated community school it is today.

With a well deserved reputation for academic excellence and high standards of behaviour I am confident that St. Michael’s International School is the ideal choice for an international education in the region.  Now you have seen us on line I invite you to visit the school, meet our staff and students, experience first hand the warm and friendly environment that our school is well known for.  Please do not hesitate to contact our Admissions office and arrange a tour. I shall be very pleased to meet you and we will be happy to show you around virtually or in person.

Kind regards,
Gill Tyrer
Head of School
