Students are taken by school bus to the gymnasium at the Wallisellen public school and to the local swimming pool.

At International School – Zurich North, class sizes range in size from 10 to 20 students. EAL support is available to second language students who need the support.

Early Bird Care

Very often, the working day begins before the school day, and to help our busy parents, we offer Early Bird Supervision for all PYP aged students from 08.00 – 08.30. Upon arrival at school, students meet the teacher supervising the ‘Early Birds’ in a designated room and then complete some quiet activities or just enjoy an early morning chat in anticipation of the day ahead before meeting their classroom teachers. This option is offered as free additional service and operates from Monday to Friday.

After School Care

After School Care (ASC) is available for PYP students (Pre-Kindergarten – Grade 5) after the regular school day ends at 3.15pm. Students engage in playful and creative activities, under the watchful supervision of our ASC team and parents are able to sign their children up for ASC at short notice.

A PYP Home Learning Club runs in conjunction After School Care, where PYP students in Grades 2-5 can be supervised whilst completing their Home Learning.

These additional services are chargeable outside of the school fees.

ASC Available             15.15 – 18.00         Monday to Friday

Home Learning Club   15.15 – 16.00         Monday to Thursday

Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs)

Our CCAs consist of various after school clubs, sports and other activities that are organised by staff members throughout the year. They are planned to compliment and extend the students’ learning by giving them opportunities to work with a variety of teachers, different social and age groups and to do so in diverse settings. ISZN strives to offer a broad range of activities, suitable to different seasons, to ensure several options and experiences are available to each of the age groups. This is also an opportunity for students, teachers and parents to work together in a collaborative setting whilst acquiring knowledge and skills and developing new peer relationships.

All of our CCAs are offered on a first come, first served basis and there is usually a small fee to cover entrance fees, materials and transportation.

CCAs that have been recently offered include:

  • Cricket
  • Forest Fun
  • Basketball
  • Graphic Design and Art Around the World
  • Upcycling
  • Football
  • Yoga
  • Choir
  • Forensic Club
