School description

One of the great strengths of a British style of international education is that such excellence involves all aspects of students’ moral, physical, emotional, aesthetic, social and academic development focused on each individual’s personal best. Here at BISB, this is achieved through superb teaching supported and complemented by Learning Assistants and the guidance of Form Tutors.

Our whole school community is highly valued and the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a key part of that. The essential but sometimes unwritten roles of the PTA include helping people settle when they move to a new city, creating a real community from a diverse group of parents, teachers and students, and providing a sense of security so that students can quickly settle down to the important task of learning.

Extra-curricular activities are one of the defining features of the BISB experience and we are proud of the range on offer through our Learning Enrichment Activities Programme. The extensive talents and skills of the teachers and their willingness to be involved in this central aspect of school life are remarkable. There is a strong commitment to active service through many of the activities on offer as well as through the Duke of Edinburgh International Award. Together these provide students with opportunities to contribute both locally and wider afield, preparing them for a future as responsible leaders and citizens in a global community. As a Nord Anglia Education school, our students benefit from opportunities offered through our on-line Global Campus, which connects them to our 34,000 students worldwide.
