The British International School is a division of "The British School Istanbul" and has a worldwide reputation for the education it provides. It is a leading private international school in Türkiye, offering a modified English National Curriculum, IGCSE and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. We are an academic school and we send our graduates to universities throughout the world, predominantly to the UK and USA.
Our ethos is welcoming and embracing. We inspire student enthusiasm, confidence, and independence and we welcome new students throughout the year. We seek to instil in all of our students an awareness and esteem of different cultures, beliefs, skills, values and personalities. As world citizens we celebrate both our shared humanity and cultural diversity. We are a co-educational community that includes students from over 55 nationalities, between the ages of 2 ½ to 18 years. We place a high emphasis upon the acquisition of languages and offer Spanish, French and Turkish. In addition to our foreign languages we also offer excellent support for English as a Second Language; students who join us with very limited English quickly reach the stage where they are fully able to access our curriculum.
