Principal's message

Speech from Principal of Trivandrum International School

I am fortunate to have been part of the creation of Trivandrum International School in 2003. From its inception, Mr George M. Thomas has been determined that The school should not just have an outstanding campus, but also a curriculum that makes it a distinct international school. ‘International’ has always been at the centre of Trivandrum International School. We aim to live by that and become one of the best international schools in India. The academic curriculum is shaped by both International Baccalaureate programmes (the Primary Years Programme and the Diploma Programme) and the suite of Cambridge Assessment International Education examinations offered by the School, but the approach in the classroom is shaped by the commitment to an international education, while studying in India. We know our students will go on to universities in India, as well as others across the world, and prepare them to follow their chosen paths. The ICSE curriculum is available in Grades 9 and 10, and both A-levels and the IBDP enable university admission in India as well as abroad.

The hostel facility is an important aspect of the Trivandrum International School community. Those staying in the hostel receive both pastoral and academic support, structured study time being provided throughout the week. There is also a strong social side to the hostel which is welcoming to new students. It is essential to craft a well-structured policy to be the best international school for students.

On re-joining Trivandrum International School in 2019 as Director of Academics and Principal, I was delighted to be immersed again in the vast range of extracurricular activities that our students undertake, right here in India.

Music and drama have been a strength of the School from its early days, but so has a commitment to social service in Trivandrum.

I would welcome you to move beyond visiting our website and to come and visit the School. It will help you get a closer look at the opportunities we create for our students at one of the best international schools. You also get the chance to see our students engage in a key task: learning for life.

– Richard Hillebrand

Boarding at Trivandrum International School

Boarding School TRINS

TRINS hostel defines itself to be a ‘home away from home’ for our boarders. It provides a rich, multicultural living and learning environment and establishes itself as one of the best international schools in Trivandrum, India. Trins management, Principal and the faculty gelled quick and well into a proactive mode quickly and succeeded in working as a well oiled team to counter the effects of the pandemic. Not only did they make the online sessions most interesting but interspersed with the right proportion of practical works. Another notable Trins initiative was to focus on interaction with not only the students but with the parents through teachers and counsellor, am area which was a blind spot otherwise. This helped parents also cope up with the unforeseen changes and adapt to the new situation, coping and balancing this situation along with the issues in their day-to-day life. -Mr Roby Stephen(parent of Mathew Thomas)
