BISA has accreditation from different organisations as well as being an approved examination centre for multiple exam bodies.
Our most recent CIS (Council of International Schools) visit in May 2016 reported that ‘internationalism is an area in which BISA excels’. We are committed to the spirit of continuous improvement and work beyond the curriculum to deliver holistic education to the adults of tomorrow.
Council of British International Schools is a membership organisation serving the needs of International Schools offering a broadly British-based curriculum and educational experience. Membership is only granted to schools that meet predetermined standards.
The Council of International Schools (CIS) is a global non-profit membership organisation. The CIS vision is to inspire the development of global citizens through high quality international education: connecting ideas, cultures and educators from every corner of the world. Within CIS membership are schools that have achieved a mark of high quality and rigour.
This recognition signifies that the school has completed a comprehensive self-study and international peer review as part of a continuous improvement process focusing on standards and indicators that promote the development of student knowledge, skills, attributes and actions aligned with the CIS Definition of Global Citizenship.
Colleges and universities worldwide acknowledge that a CIS Accredited School meets internationally-agreed and recognised standards and develops global citizens with the qualities and skills that they are seeking in students. CIS International Accreditation is recognised by the National Association of Independent Schools (USA), and by many governmental and non-governmental agencies around the world.
