  • Our Curriculum

    curriculum Our CurriculumAt The British International School we are proud to offer a challenging curriculum which combines the inquiry based, child centered philosophy of the International Baccalaureate with the rigor and academic quality of the English National Curriculum; a distinctive combination that sets us apart from other international schools.

    This approach enables all our pupils, including those pupils with learning support difficulties or disabilities, to enjoy a rounded education in which they are challenged and stimulated within a safe learning environment. We encourage them to participate and take action and ultimately to compete effectively in today’s world.

    As our pupils grow, we aim to offer them clear careers advice so that they understand themselves and the variety of opportunities ahead of them. The school offers individual guidance on suitable educational experiences beyond the school. This area is particularly relevant for our Middle Years pupils and the next stage in their education. Please see our page on Academic Success and Ongoing Placement.

    We invite you to find out more about our curriculum through the links on the left.  If you are unfamiliar with the International Baccalaureate, then we recommend our introduction here.
