As a member of the senior leadership team, the Secondary Principal works collaboratively with the Head of School and Primary Principal to ensure all students feel valued and connected, as unique individuals with their own passions and dreams, to our community. 

Why CCS?

CCS is a welcoming, supportive, caring, and diverse community. Here at CCS, we value learning, engagement, balance and respect. Students experience a balanced curriculum and holistic approach to learning. Our students love the arts, are physically active, learn multiple languages, and experience innovative learning. Balance drives our proactive approach to student health, mindfulness, and well-being. You can learn more about our academic programs and academic results here.

CCS is a non-profit co-educational school enrolling students from Preschool to Year 13. Learning at CCS is focused on inquiry, student-led, facilitated by excellent teachers, and rooted in research based best practices in international education. CCS curriculum is grounded in the British National Curriculum, Cambridge IGCSE, and IBDP but adapted to fit our unique context in Bali. Most importantly, we believe students learn best when they are empowered, confident, and part of a community. CCS is fully accredited by CIS and WASC and is authorised to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.  

There are currently around 600 students enrolled at the school, with about 230 in the Secondary School. This number is expected to return to pre-COVID capacity of 600 students.  Students at CCS come from over 40 nationalities. CCS employs 40 expatriate teachers (primarily a blend of Australian, UK, America, Canada and NZ educators with international experience) and over 50 Indonesian teachers including highly-qualified teacher assistants.  

The CCS campus is unique, a blend of modern learning spaces, Indonesian architecture and art, and Bali’s incredible natural beauty. The campus is covered in lush gardens, bordered by rice fields, with a small river running through it. Facilities include numerous air conditioned classrooms with open air learning environments attached, science labs, music and art spaces, multifunction halls, sport field and playgrounds, yoga/meditation space, and a 25m swimming pool.
