About Us

Creative Solutions

ISSA was founded in 2018 with a single mission: to be the most successful, creative and ground-breaking consulting agency for International Schools and their respective sport programmes. We approach each of our clients with fresh eyes to develop customised, unique strategies.

We recognise and value the importance of such programmes. Not only for the well being of the student, but also for the commercial success of an ever growing and ever competitive International School market. A high achieving and fully inclusive programme can be what sets you apart from other schools.

Our staff have all operated at the highest level; be it an Athletic Director, Director of Sport, Headmaster, Principal or Business Manager. The wealth of experience available at ISSA allows for a 360 approach for new initiatives or whole sale change.

With years of experience, our staff has the capabilities and expertise to take your programme to the next level. At ISSA, we combine our insights and skills to transform your processes and strategies, and in turn, your sports programme. We’re proud to help shape, change or initiative your programme. Common challenges are sporting structures, programme launch pads, scholarship criteria, budget restrictions, finding high quality coaches, marketability, student uptake, leadership and governor awareness  and much more.

We are big believers in 'disruption' - challenging the status quo. We feel for professional and personal development running other school programmes will only improve the provision of your home school. Many schools are fully supportive of this as they feel it is an outstanding opportunity for a senior leader to evolve and return with fresh ideas. Currently we connect practitioners from all over the world and look to establish 1-2 year exchange programmes.

We examine what schools are doing to stay relevant and competitive in this fast-paced environment, and which ones are doing it best. A current trend has been to partner with a professional football club in some capacity.Working alongside teams from the UK, Spain and Italy, we are connected to some of the worlds most prestigious clubs. As such we offer a number of partnership deals:

Year round training  - an elite coach, directly from the partnered club, runs your school football/soccer programme. With this comes many other benefits including branding rights, mid season tours, coach CPD, talent pathways, dual branded kit and much, much more. (Formal partnership)

Summer Camp - on site summer camps run by partnered club (Informal partnership)

Training Experience - all the emotions of a professional training camp with partner, either run on site or at the clubs professional grounds (Informal partnership)
