Mission Statement:

Individual. International. Inspirational.
We offer your child a distinctly different education of the highest academic quality. Through our carefully selected international curriculum, we aim to inspire all students to be ambitious in their learning, and give children the personalized support they need to reach their highest potential. This approach ensures there are no limits to your child's learning.

Through our highly skilled teaching staff and access to our Global Campus, BISB will inspire your child to achieve high standards, both academically and personally. The result is that your child will grow into an internationally-minded citizen with a good moral compass and exceptional character.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

We believe there is no limit to what our students can achieve. So we encourage them to be ambitious. To reach for their dreams. To step outside their comfort zones and try something new. We ignite their curiosity.

Being ambitious inspires our students. It urges them to stretch themselves that little bit further. To be relentlessly optimistic. To be the best that they can be. And beyond that to make a difference, to make things better, throughout our world.

Ambition can take them anywhere. It’s transformational. It’s what makes the extraordinary possible. But it’s only the spark. It takes passion, determination and commitment to make it a reality. It takes creativity and innovation. It takes resilience and courage. It takes confidence.

That’s why our outstanding teachers nurture these essential skills through personalised learning for each child. We build on each student’s individual strengths and passions. We create challenge in every lesson and every activity so that they continuously grow and learn. We offer unique experiences to open new opportunities.
