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.

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.
F2 Healthy Eating
This week F2 has been learning about what food we need to eat to stay healthy. We have been reading the book Oliver’s fruit salad and a real chef came into school on Monday to talk to the children about what it is like to be a chef. The children asked some very interesting questions and thoroughly enjoyed watching Chef Kenneth make a fruit salad. They then had a go themselves. It was a great experience enjoyed by all!
Last weekend a team of 26 swimmers travelled to Muscat to take part in the BSME Swimming Championships 2014. All the swimmers had to pre-qualify for all the races that they were entered in. This was an exciting meet as it was held in an open air 50m pool. The team was very lucky to be able to have a swim on Thursday afternoon before the competition.
The results were outstanding with swimmers winning 42 medals, 43 ribbons 4-6th place and 5 trophies.
Trophy winners were Mohamed, Lucy, Georgina, Ramy and Phoebe.
MUN in St Petersburg
Last week twenty of our Model United Nations students embarked upon a wonderful journey to the historically significant city of St. Petersburg in northern Russia, in order to compete in the well known SPIMUN (St. Petersburg Model United Nations) conference. Our students, none of whom had been to Russia before, joined over five hundred other students from 16 countries across the world looking to debate key global issues and, more importantly, find solutions to a number of specific international problems.
The conference was a unique opportunity for our students (Years 10-13) to experience a country they often only hear about on the news and to explore a city so steeped in relatively modern history and culture that they would be hard pressed to find one more so. Not only this, but our students were able to take part in, what is arguably the foundation principle of the MUN – that of an exchange of perspectives with people from different social, religious, political and cultural backgrounds. It is this kind of exchange which helps to provide all of our MUN students with the invaluable skills of empathy, respect, and the pursuit of excellence – core principles of BISR’s REACH ethos.
Each student endeavoured to win best delegate and with much effort and determination we were proud to see Zain Syedain, Aaqil Imthiyaz, Mehr Nadeem and Haneya Mustafa win the Best Delegate Awards for their respective committees.
