My sport is a major priority of mine and a lot of time is spent either away from school competing or training during the night in Sydney. I have received so much help academically to ensure my grades do not suffer and I am always able to catch up on work I missed. I will be able to achieve my goals, both sporting and during the HSC.

I'm a part of the Sydney FC elite squad, I really enjoy the exposure to expert coaches and the Sydney FC training methods. Training before and during school hours with other athletes of a high calibre, constantly causes me to strive to be better. I'm really enjoying the program.

I just wanted to say how impressed we have been with our son's first year at the school, its exceeded our expectations. It's a reasonable journey for him to attend ISHS and was a big decision for us at the start of the year. However he has loved going to school and speaks highly of the amount of effort the teachers there put in with him and I can see this reflecting in his grades, it's been well worth the travel.

I did a lot of research and spoke constantly with my children on deciding their high school. We were concerned about the location and logistics getting to the school, and the fact they knew no one else at the school. We were impressed with the coaching and sporting opportunities offered along with the academic framework and knew no other school had these provisions. My children are thriving and love going to ISHS. They have played in sporting teams they have never tried before and think catching the train and shuttle bus is the best thing ever! They leave at 8am and return home at 3.20, have made a diverse circle of friends from all areas and are performing well academically - learning much about teamwork and sharing common interest of their sporting aspirations.
