At IGCSE and A Level BIS, students benefit from a tailored pedagogy and a 8:1 student-teacher ratio. Our teachers are highly experienced and enthusiastic, and have a largely international profile, coming from many different nationalities.

We are an official Cambridge International Assessment Education centre and are accredited by the Council of International Schools. Our high success rate of over 90% of students achieving grades A*-C is above the UK national average.

IGCSE and A Level students profit from guidance on higher education and careers, with full coaching and support offered throughout the UCAS and universities application process. A dedicated A Level study hall is available, with a private desk for each student.

The central campus boasts newly enlarged and renovated premises, creating a light, airy and more collaborative learning space, with a new science laboratory and media centre. Students benefit from the modern swimming pool and sports facilities in close proximity.

BIS offers an open, multicultural environment for students aged from 3 to 18 years, following an international programme for IGCSE and International A Level, taught mainly in English but with continued immersion in French.

Our students can take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities, including cultural outings and after school clubs such as music, robotics, drama, and French club. They can also participate in the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.

Full-time or weekly accommodation is possible with carefully selected local French host families, which allows them to learn French language and customs in a home environment.
