Being the Principal of an outstanding, forward thinking and growing international school such as BISL is an enormous personal and professional privilege.

At BISL you will discover and enjoy a family-friendly school that is committed to working together, positively and effectively with its proud and committed community. At BISL your children will witness professional, trusting collaboration in action, and learn the value of respect for oneself and others, display both integrity and compassion, whilst also achieving excellence academically. Your son or daughter will be encouraged to express themselves clearly and responsibly, and to pursue their passions with commitment and pride.

The school is rightly proud of its fantastic record of developing students who speak multiple languages, and importantly learn to speak, read and write English to an advanced level. Aside from Modern Foreign languages, all other lessons at BISL are delivered in English, by qualified and experienced teachers. Those children who learn with us at BISL for several years regularly develop a critical proficiency level of 'academic’ English by the time they join our secondary phase. This is hugely impressive, with those boys and girls who join BISL in our Early Years Foundation Stage (2+ years onwards) very often achieving the best results in public examinations, as well as in the areas of sports, arts and music when they reach 16 to 18 years of age at the very top of our school. Indeed, many receive local, national and international honours and awards on the back of their hard work and commitment.

This evolution of BISL's youngest children into extremely impressive young adults is a direct result of the care, attention and professionalism of the staff. At BISL we recognise the challenges faced by children and their families and we understand the need for a strong, open, supportive and cohesive partnership between individual, home and school. When all parts and components work together then great things happen!
