ICS Trustees

ICS Trustees

ICS is a non-profit Foundation governed by a Board of Trustees. We are a non-sectarian, politically neutral school.

We provide an education that promotes learning, cultural and international understanding and respect for all nationalities, religions and cultural backgrounds.

The Board of Trustees is responsible for setting and amending various policies and procedures pertaining to the school. These policies and procedures are reviewed on an annual basis by the Board of Trustees together with the Head of School, who is appointed by the Board of Trustees to carry out the educational and administrative functions of the school.

The ICS Board of Trustees work collectively in the interest of the School. They work assiduously to guide the School on its strategic journey and drive it towards a future built on the strength of our history, our solid fiscal position, and our commitment to the development of every child.
Ms Lucy Gowdie, Head of School

Election to the ICS Board of Trustees carries with it a responsibility of stewardship. By definition, Trustees are the custodians of the institutional memory and integrity of the school; they hold in trust the school's reputation as created by its founder, and as developed by those who have shaped ICS in the past. Trustees are called upon to contribute their time, thought, and energy to support the viability, growth and success of ICS. Members of the Board of Trustees do not have any day-to-day responsibility with regard to the operation of the school, or with regard to the composition of the school's curriculum.

Current members of our Board of Trustees are: Mr Sanjeev Premchand (Board of Trustees Chair), Ms Lucy Gowdie (Head of School, ex-officio), Mr Nathaniel Atherton (Primary Principal, ex-officio), Mr James Penstone (Secondary Principal, ex-officio), Mr Valentijn Bonger, Mr Claudio de Sanctis, Ms Bettina Diggelmann, Prof Dr Urs Saxer, Mr Maziar Mike Doustdar, Dr Sandra Thoma, Mr Tarak Mehta and Mr Greg Vlasek.
