Performing & Visual Arts


There are two specialist Art and Design teachers, one in Primary and one in Secondary. Each teacher has a specialist art room, which is fully resourced with a variety of materials.

The aim of Art and Design at KISU is for all students to realise their potential in creating, and appreciating the arts through the curriculum and extensive extra-curricular activities.

All students will have access to a wide range of arts experiences and play a key role across the curriculum, where students, parents and staff recognise the Arts as outstanding. We believe the Arts are a vehicle for continuous development, exploration and celebration.

Curriculum

IGCSE Art and Design (Cambridge – 0400)

IB Visual Arts

In Secondary, there is an additional Art room that is used as an IGCSE/IB Studio. Additionally, we have a kiln that is frequently used for both Primary and Secondary students clay work.

In Art and Design lessons, students will have the ability to:

  • Develop practical, technical and critical skills and being confident to use arts specific language to communicate their feelings, ideas and meanings.
  • Learn to make valuable judgements and aesthetic decisions, becoming actively involved in shaping environments and drawing meaning from the world around them.
  • Develop and create imaginative responses with a growing awareness of their emotional maturity, literacy, and identity.
  • Explore ideas and meanings in the work of professional artists, and learn about the diverse roles and functions of the times, cultures, and the contemporary world.

Sports At KISU


At KISU, we are passionately committed to a holistic approach to developing our young people and there is hardly a better vehicle for doing this than through sport where children learn vital skills and develop important qualities and values.  

Sport is about learning to work in a team and to be committed. Sport offers children the chance to: develop resilience; learn humility; keep healthy; increase self-esteem; be committed; have integrity, and show determination.

KISU competes, with considerable success, against the other international schools in Kampala in the ISSAK league.

The main sports in which we compete are (both for boys and girls in each case) football, basketball and volleyball. In addition, there are championships in Swimming, Athletics and Cross-country at both primary and secondary school levels.

In sports, we try to achieve a balance between excellence and participation so the sports aforementioned are also offered as a more relaxed club option together with a wide variety of others for example ranging from karate, cricket, ballet, inline skating, gymnastics, table tennis, baking & zumba just to mention a few . At any given time more than 30 clubs are on offer to children after school many of which are in the sporting arena.
