The BIST way
To prepare them for
the world of tomorrow
From ages 3 to 18: consistent methods throughout your child’s journey
Each class has a dedicated teacher, educated up to the British standard, with the skills to inspire confidence, creativity, and a life-long love of learning that enthuses children during their time here and beyond.
As a member of COBIS, our standards are unapologetically high. Accreditation criteria covers a wide array of professional, teaching, values, and welfare standards that only the very best British international schools have the knowledge and capacity to meet.
The curriculum, in each stage, has aims and objectives that support students to become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged. We want each student to fulfil their potential and make the most of their strengths and interests.
Safeguarding and Student Welfare
Along with high academic standards, we provide a sound moral and social framework for the healthy development of the individual.
At every stage we help students discover who they are, instil them with our values, and fill them with the confidence required to dream big so they’re ready to forge their own path in the wider world.
Bringing the British curriculum to Tunisia
Our teaching, based on the National Curriculum of England and Wales, prepares students for life by instilling an informed curiosity and lasting passion for learning.
Through combined hard work with children, teachers, and parents we help open doors to the world’s best universities – in the UK, the US, and beyond. We offer programs that take students on a journey through the UK National Curriculum in Early Years, Primary and Secondary.
We are passionate about providing the best possible education for your child. That’s why our school is accredited by leading education and examination bodies.
The British International School of Tunis has a responsibility for the care, welfare, safety and the learning environment of all our pupils.
Teachers, non-teaching staff, welfare staff and other adults all are part of a team. This team wants to ensure pupils are happy and secure in whatever activity they are taking part in, whether social, emotional or physical. We have a caring commitment to guide and advise our pupils, equipping them with the skills needed to face the outside world. Teachers and non-teaching staff are encouraged to approach the care of our children in a positive way.
One of the key strengths of BIST is the fantastic relationships that exist between staff and students. It is important to continue to foster this central part of our school culture.
Student life: much more than a school!
Our passion for education has always given us the will to build a living space in which each child can enrich themselves intellectually and flourish in diversity and community life.
We inspire them to take any opportunity that comes their way and encourage them to embrace experiences, learn from each other, and be inspired by those great people who influenced the history of the world through writing, politics, music, art, sport, poetry and science. All this takes place in a happy, stimulating environment where everyone feels welcome and at home.
We believe that a school is much more than a place to study.
Technologies and Digital Resources
Here at BIST, we are supporting our culture of innovation, creativity and collaboration by providing students with the opportunity to bring their own device (BYOD).
Having immediate access to technology will empower students to be self-directed, responsible and adaptable learners in our forward-thinking community.
In all divisions technology is carefully incorporated into the curriculum to help deepen students’ understanding of subjects and foster excitement as they create, problem solve and collaborate – while along the way becoming inquisitive learners and responsible digital citizens.
School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference.
Policies address the practical implications of how to achieve the school’s vision and are a key means of ensuring that agreed values underpin day-to-day decisions and actions in our school. They are concerned with key processes within school and are about interactions between school, pupils, parents, and community. They are about ensuring highly effective teaching and learning, and safety.
