Headteacher of Senior School & Sixth Form
On behalf of the staff and pupils at BISAK Senior School and Sixth Form, I bid you a very warm welcome to our website. I hope you enjoy looking around.
BISAK Senior School and Sixth Form provides the very best of the English education system for boys and girls of ages 11-19. We teach Key Stages 3, 4 and 5, with Lower School covering the English National Curriculum for Years 7 to 9, Upper School teaching GCSEs or IGCSEs to Years 10 and 11, and the Sixth Form studying AS, A2 and A level courses across Years 12 and 13.
We are a truly International School that provides diverse and challenging learning experiences for everyone in our community. We celebrate the fact that children learn in a multitude of different ways and that our pupils come from a rich variety of backgrounds, bringing with them a wealth of different strengths, experiences and interests. Our school motto is ‘Let There Be Peace on Earth’ and we positively encourage all of our pupils to adopt a truly international outlook as global citizens of the 21st Century. As a school with a true family atmosphere, we expect the highest standards of behaviour and are very proud to say that this is precisely what we achieve.
We are fortunate in having a team of talented, committed teachers and support staff who create a learning environment that is motivating for every pupil and will inspire your child to achieve their own personal goals and dreams. Our pupils are taught how to be resilient, how to enjoy learning and are expected to share in the responsibility for their own and everyone else’s achievement; they are encouraged to think creatively and expected to complete schoolwork and homework to the very best of their ability. We want all of our pupils to leave us prepared to tackle the challenges of higher-level studying at University or to succeed in the workplace.
Our consistently excellent GCSE and GCE results place us alongside the top 200 schools in the UK, because our pupils develop the ability always to rise to the challenges they have been set and we work hard with them to attain these standards in all aspects of school life.
We look forward to working in partnership with you to provide your children with the optimum learning experience throughout their time at BISAK Senior School and Sixth Form. Once you have finished viewing the website, I invite you to visit our school and to join the BISAK community.
