Registration at ISB - Primary & Secondary

It is always exciting to welcome new students to ISB. Registration at ISB is possible throughout the entire school year (assuming there are free places in the classes). 


Prior to formally applying to the school, families are welcome to visit ISB anytime. ISB staff members will be happy to provide a tour of the facilities, to introduce families to teachers and students and to answer any questions they might have about the school and the registration process. These visits are best timed during the school day in order for visiting families to observe the school in action.

We understand that sometimes, more than one visit is necessary as sometimes the whole family is not in Brno for the initial visit. It is not a problem to arrange multiple visits. It is very important that students get a chance to see their new school as moving cities and schools is a very big change for a family.

To arrange a visit, please contact

Head of School - Mr. Jan Švihálek +420 776 490 120

Primary and Early Years Principal - Mrs. Soňa Štěpánková +420 725 726 095

Secondary and High School principal - Mr. Dylan Vance +420 731 558 586

Once the decision to move to Brno and to register at ISB has been made, families should provide the school with the following documents:

  • the completed registration form - download here
  • a copy of 1 parent's passport
  • a copy of the student's passport
  • translated copies of the most recent progress reports from the student's current school
  • all pertinent documentation detailing the student's education thus far (Behaviour Plans, Individual Education Plans, Special Educational Needs documentation, Advancement Plans, relevant medical information, etc.)
Studying at ISB


Once the registration package is received by the school, it is then necessary to confirm incoming students' current stage in their education and their needs. A date and time is arranged when the incoming students are assessed in English and Mathematics in order to be sure that they are placed in the most appropriate year group and to determine whether any additional support is necessary (EAL, SEN, Extension, etc.). In most cases, students are placed with their peer group; however, in order to be sure that all students are appropriately challenged each and every day, the school prefers to use internal assessments to make this determination. It is preferred that these assessments take place prior to the projected start date.

EAL Programme - English As an Additional Language
(For students learning English)

If a student is still learning to speak English (CEFR A1 or A2), the school will recommend that the student receive EAL support in accordance with their needs and will monitor their progress carefully. Please note there is an extra fee for this.

For students entering Secondary, it is possible that an individual education plan (IEP) will be recommended in order to ensure that the student is given time to attain a minimal level of English proficiency before they begin to prepare for IGCSE exams or start the IB Diploma Programme. The aim in these situations is always to do what is in the student's best interest.

Compared to Chinese exam- oriented education, Wenjie likes ISB more. The assignments in China are more transcribed to strengthen memory, here we pay attention more to the development of competence.

My two boys started school at ISB in September 2015. One in grade 1 and the other in grade 3. (Both are not native English speakers.) I (as a mom) found sending them to school for the first day really scary. New country, new city, new school and even a new Language. They came home happy and just after a couple of weeks the boys started to speak English and they were really beginning to feel at home in school. The Staff, teachers and other parents have been a great help with adjusting not only to school life, but also to life in Brno in general. The atmosphere in school is really welcoming and warm. There is always a listening ear.
Also the PTA has been a great help, connecting with other parents and really feeling part of the ISB community.
So far it has been a great experience for us!

I am writing this review of the International School of Brno on Čejkovická street with great love. My son attended this school from grade 1 to grade 3. Unfortunately I had to move with my son to the States due to work reasons. We miss ISB a lot in the States and already are planning return to the Czech Republic.
