Meet the Head

Rod Jackson, ICS Head of School 


ICS Head of School Rod Jackson has spent more than 25 years working in independent schools in Africa, Australia and the United Kingdom.

He is a passionate promoter of an entirely holistic approach to education in which a rigorous approach to academic education, an outstanding programme of extracurricular opportunities alongside excellent pastoral care and personal development combine to create a world class educational experience for each child.
