Our History

To say the least, IST's history is rich and vibrant. For example, IST's first school chair, Dr. Michael Latham, was awarded OBE by HM Queen Elizabeth II for the work he had done in setting up the school. In addition, Sir Andy Chande, the school's first treasurer of the Board, was made an Honorary Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. Learn more about IST's history >>.
