Letter from our Heads

Home » Why SIAL » Letter from our Heads


We believe that children should be seen and heard.
That they can and do speak a hundred languages.

We believe that they each have the right to learn how to:


Be happy with who they are and can be

Dance in the light of their imagination

Find resilience in the face of adversity

Consistently treat others as they wish to be treated

See the world with open minds

Have fun and enjoy their childhood

Driven by these beliefs, we are compelled
to ensure that each child in our care is:

Inspired within and beyond their frame of reference

Clear on where they stand

Challenged at their level

Clearer on how to move forward

Supported at their pace

Happy to be learning

We seek to succeed in this through small, but frequent, attentive and positive steps – enlightened by reflection, steeled by doing the right thing at the right time and humbled by each child’s journey as a citizen of the world and of the future.

With best wishes for a wonderful time here,

Ben Mearhart and Ines Saltalamacchia

Parents Say

We are huge fans of La Scuola and continue to be. This is in no way a reflection of our satisfaction of the school but solely based on having to integrate him in the English system.
