A BISC Education
We believe in a broad, balanced and progressive education for our pupils. We seek to develop the knowledge, skills and values of our pupils. We wish our students to leave the School with strong moral qualities and high level skills that make them active, caring and deep thinkers, ready to assume their responsibilities as the leaders of tomorrow.
Student success happens across a huge canvas of educational activity, as deep as it is diverse. On a narrow academic level, public examination success is impressive, as seen by our year on year overview of GCSE and IB Diploma results and in the positive value-added that our students achieve.
Value-added measures are intended to offer a fairer indication of how far a student has come, a fairer measure of how well the school has brought that student. 0.00 would indicate an average student progress with +0.50 indicating significant progress in relation to average.

We believe in learning in its broadest sense. Based on a broad curriculum and supported by an extensive range of extra curricular events and activities, our students are exposed to an exciting and fulfilling education. Happy, bright and engaged students taught by teachers who see things through children's eyes.
Areas of study for the class of 2023
BISC believes in a broad, balanced and enriching education for all its pupils.
We offer a high quality co-curricular programme which aims to excite, extend and excel. We make use of our excellent facilities for art, drama, music and sports, and support a broad range of academic activities, clubs and societies. Our enrichment education extends beyond the campus with an established range of events, trips and conferences - local, regional and international.
Pupils from Year 2 upwards are encouraged to take at least one activity per week. All activities are supervised by a member of the teaching staff. Here is an example list of activities previously offered to our Junior School pupils:
Activities run across year groups. Some may be student-led but all will be supervised by specialist staff. Students are advised to pursue a mix of academic, sporting and cultural activities. Here is an example list of activities previously offered to our Senior School students:
Accelerated Reading at BISC
Reading is a key part of an education at BISC. To encourage reading from a young age, our Librarians use the Accelerated Reader program to measure the amount of books and words that each child reads. Take a look at our latest statistics on the graphic below.
