1st September - We look forward to seeing all our students for the start of Term
The British International School located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, is a co-educational school, catering for English-speaking children aged 3 to 18.
We provide a high quality education based on the National Curriculum of England and leading to examinations at GCSE and Advanced Level.
We are a non-profit making institution with our main source of income being fees paid by parents or their employers. Today, the school has over 1300 students and upwards of 40 nationalities.
It is our aim to provide a broad and balanced education for our pupils, with a strong academic focus in a positive and pleasant environment, which will enable your child to learn and grow academically, socially, creatively and emotionally.
We have high expectations of our pupils, and our teaching and support staff have a commitment to maximising potential, and fostering and encouraging high achievement. At the same time, we promote the values of respect, compassion, trust, honesty and good manners.

We, the students, parents, teachers and community of BISR, provide a caring, safe and stimulating environment where we strive to make every student feel valued, happy and successful.
We are an innovative school that has a long tradition of providing a British style education with an international perspective. We are committed to excellence through a wide variety of activities both in and out of the classroom. Responsibility, enthusiasm, integrity and participation are expected.
Our community accepts, embraces and celebrates cultural diversity, while promoting the values of respect, honesty, compassion and kindness. We appreciate ourselves and others as individuals with rights and responsibilities, acting as conscientious global citizens. We are a community of life-long learners who can contribute to making our world a better place.
We challenge students to explore and question, seek solutions, make informed decisions, solve problems, demonstrate tenacity and express themselves confidently. We empower students to take responsibility for their learning and be recognised as young independent leaders.
Project Rocket is an end of year activity that gave our Year 9 students the opportunity to use the chemistry from KS3 to propel a rocket and have some fun. It was loud, messy and involved a certain amount of dexterity and problem solving from our students, in order for the rockets to reach their optimum distances. It was also a great opportunity for our students to get immersed in the practical process and use the skills we have been trying to develop within them over Key Stage 3. Palgrave won the event overall.
F2 Beach Day and House Events
What a busy two weeks we have had in F2! As the Beach Days were such a success in the first week we decided to put the paddling pools up for another week. The children have thoroughly enjoyed using the pools, making sand castles and having an ice cream.
To top it all off on Wednesday 18 June F2 held their last House Event in line with our topic “Under the sea”. We did water races! It was an extremely tight race but in the end PITTS won!
Well done F2 children for being so well behaved during our paddling pool days and for being such great sports during the House Event.
Year 12 Work Experience
The Year 12 students embarked on Work Experience this week. Students gained places at banks, medical research facilities, law firms, hotels, engineering facilities, dentists, embassies and hospitals. The students learnt new skills and found out what it is like to work in the ‘real world’. The experience has helped them determine what they would like to study at university and what they want to do with their lives in the future.
