About The British International School of Marbella

History and Ethos

The British International School of Marbella (BISM) is one of the leading international schools in Marbella offering contemporary British international education to students in Early Years, Primary and Secondary education. Since opening in 2010, BISM has become the school of choice for expatriate and Spanish parents looking to provide their children with highest levels of education. 

The school forms part of The British Schools Foundation (BSF). We view character development as an essential part of our work. We rely on teachers with the experience to nurture independence of mind, resilience, and a caring disposition in our pupils.

Location and Facilities

In June 2020 the school moved into a brand new, state of the art campus in the Nagueles region of Marbella.

Career Development and Benefits

A career with BISM offers all the opportunities associated with a dynamic, global organisation. We offer a competitive salary, and provide fantastic learning and continuing professional development opportunities, both within the school and across The British Schools Foundation network. Many of our teachers have been with BSF for many years, have experienced working in several countries and have developed their careers within the organisation.

The Future

BISM currently offers education up to Year 10 in Secondary school, with plans to open an additional year group in each new academic year. The new campus will allow for this expansion to develop into a full Secondary school with iGCSEs and A Levels offered.  In an increasingly competitive market, BISM continues to strengthen its ambition of being the region’s most respected and highest achieving school.

What people say about us

I have worked as a Foundation Stage teacher at BISM for four years. I can honestly say it is the most exciting place I have ever worked. The wonderful thing about working for BISM is that no day, week or year is ever the same. It is a dynamic and flexible working environment where the children’s needs and interests are put first. The great thing about working here is that the importance of having fun and becoming the best version of yourself is relevant to both children and staff.
