  • Headmaster Jinseki International School Matthew Baker

    I feel strongly that education should aim to instil intellectual courage and curiosity, to develop compassion and to strengthen the integrity of every child. A bilingual, boarding environment, in surroundings such as JINIS enjoys, is ideally suited to these high aims and the extraordinary quality of our ethos and resources will be seen by you, their parents, in the evolution of your child's character.

    JINIS is more than that since it also provides a bilingual Japanese-English education with respect for the two languages and the strengths of the different educational curricula and cultures that go with them. In this, it draws upon the experience of a number of international schools and particularly of Institut Le Rosey in Switzerland where I was Head for 17 years. I am proud to be associated with this ground-breaking initiative.

  • JINIS is a school that prepares children for life in so many ways. Whilst ensuring that the highest academic standards are achieved, children grow socially and emotionally in a caring and special boarding environment. The School is intentionally small in order to cater for each child’s personal needs and they grow to understand that learning comes in all shapes and sizes.
