Principal's message

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 distinct. ‘International’ has always been at the centre of Trivandrum International School. 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. 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 TRINS 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.

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 extra-curricula activities that our students undertake. Music and drama have been a strength of the School from its early days, but so has a commitment to social service. In all areas, the diversity of activities has grown and every week brings another opportunity to celebrate the variety of experiences that Trivandrum International School offers its students.
I would welcome you to move beyond visiting our website and to come and visit the School. This will give you the chance to see our students engaged in our key task: learning for life.
