Executive Director’s Message
I am delighted to welcome you to the The Bridge International School website. I hope to convey the passion and enthusiasm that both staff and students share which makes The Bridge International School such a wonderful place to learn..
Founded in 2013, The Bridge International School is renowned for the outstanding holistic education that we provide. We have a strong focus on students’ academic progress and achievement and we prepare them higher education which is the the chosen route for most of our students. We deliver a curriculum model based on the English National Curriculum and the Cambridge International Curriculum.
Students work in an environment where they are stretched and challenged and have their expectations raised to achieve demanding targets. I am very proud of the exceptional body of teaching staff we have working across the School, engaging students in a wide range of exciting learning opportunities.
At TBIS we place every student in a position where they are afforded choices through their lives, unconstrained; by the expectations of others, by their own ambitions and by external requirements and boundaries. All students are an intricate combination of both strengths and areas for improvement. Understanding these elements is the key to discovering and fulfilling their potential.
Our students’ success cannot be defined by qualifications alone. Students leave the School as dynamic and impactful global citizens, equipped to play a leading role in whichever walk of life they choose. To achieve this, students are encouraged to participate in the extensive array of opportunities which exist beyond the classroom. Our excellent team of educators ensures that every student is guided and cared for to ensure that their individual needs are met and students leave TBIS accomplished in academic skills and are architects of lives that exceed expectations.
Student leadership is something that we want to develop to be the very fabric of the School. The House system is run by senior students and all year groups compete and contribute to the impassioned collaboration that are the House competitions. I consider it vital that leadership opportunities are available to all, rather than an exclusive few. I am confident that our ever evolving initiatives help to provide a balanced and holistic education.
The Bridge International School is a challenging and yet exhilarating place to learn. I warmly invite you to come and visit to experience the school for yourself, to see all that The Bridge International School has to offer.
