A Greeting From The Headmaster
Nicholas James Gunn
I consider it a great honour and opportunity to be the founding headmaster of Japan’s first junior boarding school, Jinseki International School. Having spent over half of my 25 years in education working in both Article One and international Schools in Japan, I am in no doubt that Jinseki will offer all our children the very best education possible in a truly unique learning environment.
As an international boarding school, we will offer the highest level of pastoral care in a family atmosphere that will become ‘a home away from home’ for our learning community. Through a broad and enriched dual language curriculum, our students will develop as internationally-minded children highly competent in both written and spoken English and Japanese. On graduation, they will leave us as confident but humble young adults prepared to thrive in top-tier schools across the world.
Set in a privileged natural environment the school offers opportunities for our students to learn about themselves and the wider world stretching far beyond the classroom and textbook. With mountains and skiing, the islands of the Inland Sea and numerous cultural treasures all within easy reach, Jinseki offers a rare learning journey where education and nature can truly be embraced as one.
I hope you will take the opportunity to visit us and discover more. A warm welcome awaits.
