A Vision for Phoenix House

It is with huge pride that Phoenix House International School opened its doors in August 2021 in Tokyo. The school seeks to offer a creative and innovative British style independent school education within the rich cultural context of Japan. Our curriculum and house system prepares pupils with fundamental skills and self confidence needed to successfully navigate life and contribute to society.


Both in the East and in the West, the Phoenix is a legendary bird. Throughout its long life, it rises again and again to better itself, becoming stronger by learning from its past and charging into the future. We seek such qualities in each and every pupil under our care.

Our core mission is to create young people who can work collaboratively, ask and answer deep questions, think critically, and act responsibly. Using a thematic approach, which naturally incorporates and develops inquiry skills, we seek to deliver both academic excellence and personal growth, helping our students grow as individuals with both integrity and a strong moral compass.


Our ethos is built on developing a culture of mutual respect. We strive to instill in our pupils an appreciation of both their own culture as well as that of the wider world. We aim for our pupils to develop self-confidence and a positive mindset towards inclusion and a diverse world. At Phoenix House, they are challenged to try new things, find their talents and nurture their interests.

House life is central to the pupils' experience at Phoenix House. Building confidence and enriching the school community, Rothesay House, Oak House, Windsor House, and Snowdon House bring the arts, culture and character to the heart of the school. 


At our North Peak enrichment campus in Hokkaido, pupils enjoy an environment in which to learn and grow, in closer affinity to the natural world. 


We look forward to sharing more information with you about Phoenix House. 


Rest assured, a warm welcome awaits.
