Deciding where your child receives their education will direct the course of their lives. I am proud to bring British International School to you, allowing you to make the best decision for your child’s future. I believe students not only need to achieve great education but also need to learn a set of core values which include kindness, courtesy, confidence and humility. I hope that each student leaves this school with a greater sense of social responsibility and set on a path to become great contributors to society. We work hard to ensure that every child is given the best possible academic outcome, develops strength of character and go on to achieve their personal goals. Achieving these accomplishments is only probable through the work of a growing and talented staff. I am proud of our teachers who bring with them their own diverse talents and passions. Their commitment to their students extends far outside the classroom and well beyond the workday. I look forward to welcoming you to become a part of our family and our dream of bettering our society with the strength of education and good character.

British International School was started with only one aim, to offer students the chance to ditch Cambridge and opt for newer, more robust and academically challenging curriculum. Pearson Edexcel is the brand name for academic and general qualifications; including GCSEs and A levels, as well as some vocational qualifications, including NVQs and Functional Skills.
A little History
Edexcel began as an awarding organisation following the merger of London Examinations and BTEC in 1996. After Pearson became Edexcel's awarding organisation in April 2013, Edexcel became a qualification brand, now standing as one of Pearson’s leading brands. Learn more

Still Confused about which Curriculum & Examination
board is best for you?
The two most popular examination boards offered in the UK currently are Pearson Edexcel and Oxford International AQA. Edexcel has been developed by domain specialists and is subject to routine review to keep the subjects updated and relevant. They offer over 40 subjects with examinations taken at the end of the course. Edexcel is recognized internationally and holds a very high standard. International Edexcel students are given the same status as British GCSEs when evaluating candidates for university admission. As the system has been designed to keep the courses and syllabus up to date and current, many universities give marginal preference to this qualification for admission to courses of study which are swiftly evolving. We at British International school have years of experience delivering the Edexcel curriculum and preparing our students for board examinations all the way from Year 1 to A-Levels. The Edexcel curriculum prompts teacher-student engagement, it is not as simple as an educator delivering a class by the practice of repeated reading and writing without necessarily understanding the subject/topic. The curriculum stipulates our educators to spark discussion in class and to connect with every student hence we follow a strict 1:15 teacher-student ratio avoiding over-crowded classrooms.
