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 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.
Salwa Y3 Visit to Al Muwad Horse Farm
Just before half term, Year 3 was very lucky to get a trip to learn all about Arabian Horses. The children travelled to Al Muwad Stud where they were met by Mr Ryan Jones and his team. The children really enjoyed this exciting experience; their recounts of their trip are available to view in the BISR newsletter through the VLE. A big thank you must go to all at Al Muwad Stud for their hospitality
Syria Appeal Update
Mrs Blacklaw recently returned from Syria after taking all of the donations gathered by the school.
The school was able to donate 55,200 pairs of underwear, SAR75,000 to Médecins Sans Frontières and 400 boxes of clothes and blankets to JHCO and UNHCR.
The school was also able to donate 20 boxes of summer clothes to the Philippines which the AISR senior students took with them on their trip last week.
