British International School, Belgrade
About British International School, Belgrade
BIS began as the International High School Belgrade, co-founded in 1997 by Aleksandra Keserovic, a local teacher and professional vocalist, and the late Dr Jonathan Rider. Being the first international secondary school in Serbia based on the English language BIS was in the position to accommodate children of the diplomatic corps, foreign business families, as well as local children interested in schooling in the English language and wanting to attend universities worldwide.
In 2003 with the change of name to the British International School, reflecting a change to the British curriculum and the addition of the Primary School, BIS became able to accept students from 4 to 19 years old.
BIS currently has four campuses. Upper Secondary students are in a beautiful building in Smetanina which offers a range of practical rooms to suit all our class sizes, and allows for a large Resource Centre, as well as two large computer rooms, and a smaller computer room.
With the school continuing to increase the student body in September 2015 BIS opened a campus in Palackova very close to our Upper Secondary Campus. This is used by our Key Stage 3 students: those in Years 7, 8 and 9.
The BIS Infant Primary campus, in Uzicka, is exceptionally suitable for the students, given its closed off environment with a large outdoor space. The size of the playground allows for many outdoor activities such as football, basketball, climbing frame, swings, seesaws and two pergolas for rest and/or group activities. Students can enjoy on-site swimming lessons with a professional swimming instructor.
The BIS Upper Primary Campus in Iliciceva will open in February this year. It is situated directly behind the Infant school. It features large spacious classrooms and a modern bright look. It has a dedicated science area and a large computer room. This school will be used by our Key Stage 2 students in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.
BIS is accredited by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology Development of the Republic of Serbia is a Full Member of both the European Council of International Schools (ECIS) and the Council of British International Schools (COBIS). BIS is a registered Cambridge Assessment International Education Centre (EA011) and delivers their A and AS levels, IGCSEs, as well as Cambridge Checkpoint examinations.
