About British International School, Al Khobar
Welcome to BISAK from Mr Stephen Viner, Principal
Dear Prospective Applicant
Thank you for taking the time to review our recruitment information. I joined the school as Head of Secondary in 2010. I have had the privilege to watch our school grow and develop. I am very proud to be associated with a school that is as successful as BISAK.
In September 2019 our dream of a new school became a reality. Our school now finally has the 21st Century facilities our pupils and staff so deserve. I hope like me you have the desire to work with our pupils on a campus which will allow us to broaden every child’s horizon in ways we cannot yet imagine.
In June 2017, our British School Overseas (BSO) inspection led by PENTA International stated that: “The pupils, parents and staff are highly committed to the school and feel valued”. This is the key to our school, our family and ultimately, our success every day.
Working at BISAK provides a unique opportunity to work in a successful international all-through school for pupils age 3 to 18 years. Both the Preparatory and Senior School and Sixth Form work very closely together to ensure that pupils experience the same holistic and one school philosophy.
Our school has a very family-oriented ethos, including married couples, with and without children who attend the school, alongside single people as part of the team. We are very proud of our highly successful NQT programme, with Teaching School Status where new colleagues join BISAK from University to start their teaching career. All the different people who work at BISAK help create a professional, caring and supportive spirit which permeates the whole school.
If you want to be able to teach in a state of the art school, develop as a professional, work within a supportive community, be able to develop the minds of each child ready for the unknown challenges and the futures that they may face, then BISAK is the school for you. If you believe you can work with us and add value to our pupils. I hope you will take the time to apply to our school.
I sincerely hope that in the very near future I am personally able to welcome you to our wonderful school.
Mr Stephen Viner
