BIS, the small school with a big heart, is also a voice that is heard and respected far and wide in the world of education. It is a unique institution, founded in 1962 by a group of visionary parents who, being dissatisfied with the options available for their children, set out to establish something different.

A parent cooperative, the BIS is led by a Governing Body consisting of the Trustees, Founder Members, elected Parent Members and Principal. It is guided by a constitution, drafted by the Founders, which spells out the guidelines and framework for the school, and ensures a continuity of philosophy and approach.

Over the years, BIS has adapted and evolved to the needs of the day, always offering its students an outstanding learning experience.
