Dear Parents and Students,

Jonathan Travis

It is a genuine honour and a privilege to introduce myself as the new Head of Secondary at BISL. I feel humbled to be afforded this wonderful opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our young people and I will work relentlessly to ensure that every individual, regardless of starting point, leaves BISL with a genuine love of learning and the tools needed to thrive in a complex world.
