BISJ Primary is a warm, vibrant and welcoming school, where learning is at the heart of everything we do.
We are committed to providing a safe, secure and happy environment where our students, from around sixty nationalities, come together to learn in an atmosphere of mutual respect and international mindedness.

Our Golden Rule says it all-“We treat others the way we would like to be treated” 


Our curriculum, derived from the IPC, the IB Learner Profile, current research and best practices from around the world, supports our aim of helping children to develop holistically, to become life-long learners and to grow socially, emotionally, physically, morally, creatively and academically.  In addition, we actively encourage all our students to develop and recognise these four key attributes, vital for success in life: resilience, reciprocity, resourcefulness and reflectiveness (The 4Rs)  

We cater for a wide range of student needs and our Student Support Service Teams provide effective assistance to students newly learning English as a Second Language (ESL), students with Specific Learning Difficulties and those with social and emotional needs.

The Primary School is also fully committed to establishing positive and effective home-school partnerships. We actively encourage and expect all our parents to participate not only in their own child’s education but also in the wider life of the school. For those with time available, there is a strong parent volunteer programme providing valuable support for teachers in class and beyond. There is also a rich calendar of extracurricular community events, and information evenings to which parents are warmly welcomed.

A child’s time in Primary School is very special, whether they are taking their first steps away from mum and dad or preparing to move onto their next phase of education in the Upper Secondary Section or in other schools around the world. We are proud of our commitment to making their experience during their time with us rewarding and positive

We trust that, as you browse through the Primary Section of the site, you’ll find answers to many questions you may have. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like further information.
