Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to The British International School of Marbella.  We are one of the leading schools in Spain, providing world class education to children aged 2-14 in Early Years, Primary School and Secondary School. We currently offer Secondary education up to Year 9 and will open an additional year group every year.

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will have to make. We recognise this and at BISM we ensure that every child achieves their potential and more. Through highly enjoyable and engaging learning experiences, pupils acquire the skills and knowledge they need to thrive both academically and socially. 

All of our classroom teachers are UK-qualified and receive up-to-date training to ensure standards are always high. State-of-the-art technologies are integrated into our curriculum and classrooms to ensure pupils are prepared for the future. A range of rich academic resources complement our innovative and exciting approach to teaching and learning. All of this guarantees that every child in our care receives the best possible education.

As well as academic progress, your child will develop into a responsible global citizen guided by our school’s principles of honesty, integrity, tolerance and respect for others. Pupils are encouraged to be inquisitive and to play a part in their own development, as well as being challenged and given the opportunity to discover their abilities.  We work hard to create an environment where children enjoy learning and feel safe and confident to participate, make mistakes and have fun.

Our school forms part of the British Schools Foundation (BSF), an established family of schools in Spain and South America. This international network provides regular and frequent opportunities for engaging with the broader BSF family. As a result, our pupils are more likely to develop ambitions and a sense of their own potential that is marked by a broad, global perspective. 

It is our firm ambition to ensure pupils who complete their education with us are exceptionally well prepared for the next stage of their education with the solid foundation of a character to succeed in life to match. 

I encourage you to come and visit our campus.  I will be extremely pleased to welcome you and look forward to sharing the achievements of our school and children. I know that you will sense the unique atmosphere here and will want your child to become a part of it. For more information or to arrange a tour, you can get in touch with our Admissions department

With best wishes,
