The BIST way


The BIST Future

Welcome to BIST Primary school

I am Karyn, and I am the Primary Principal here at BIST  !  I am from Scotland, received a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from the University of Dundee and my Diploma in Special Education from the University of Leeds. I am certified to teach Early Childhood, SEN, EAL and Primary Education. This is my first year at BIST after four years in China. I have a true passion for working with our community; colleagues, parents and children!!  Helping each child progress in all areas of their development—academic, social, emotions and supporting them to find and follow their passions—is a challenge that I am honoured to be a part of each and every day

We care for your child


We provide a caring, loving and secure environment, involving all pupils, adults within the school community.

Pastoral Care

Together in partnership with parents and carers we aim to look after the welfare of all our children. Happy, healthy children learn best.

Pupil council

We aim to create an environment in which all the pupils understand, respect and appreciate each other’s cultural diversity.

Extra Curricular Activities

While we teach the children the importance of academic achievement, we also encourage them to take a deeper look into their potential.

Supporting Families

We endeavour to provide good communication with parents, as we believe that parents are also partners in their child’s education and development.

Empowering your child

Passion fuels purpose — when your child’s dreams are anchored to a clear vision and driven by his or her interests, he or she will be motivated to work harder to make those dreams come true.
