About The British International School, Moscow

About the school

The British International School of Moscow, first established in April 1994 is a non–government educational institution and is licensed by the Moscow Department of Education.

Highly qualified, native English speaking teachers deliver the curriculum, ably assisted by Russian teachers and teaching assistants. The school has an excellent provision for English as an Additional language (EAL). Children of approximately 65 nationalities attend BISM, bringing a unique richness and variety to the educational experience.

The class sizes are small and allow for the curriculum to be differentiated, meeting the individual needs of our students. Those children who need specific support with the English language receive an E.A.L. support programme.
All the schools are well resourced with teaching and learning materials including excellent information technology provision, sports halls, libraries and well equipped science laboratories.

This International Baccalaureate World School has six different sites in Moscow, each site has a different Headteacher and there is a close connection between all the schools and staff. All schools are extremely well resourced with computer suites, science labs, interactive white boards, libraries, music rooms and fully equipped sports and arts facilities.

BISM has a very high reputation in Moscow for the approach and quality of its education. They believe it should not just be about academic learning, but rather about the whole child and the school community. Local students attend BIS Moscow because the parents understand that their children are living in a very global world and so, to best succeed, they need to have the widest possible opportunities. An English-speaking, British education with connections to the UK’s best universities is considered a huge benefit. BIS Moscow over the past several years has consistently been one of the top performing international schools in the city, as can be seen from its students’ IB Diploma results.

There are opportunities for professional development for the staff of the British International School of Moscow, with the chance to significantly broaden your horizons. Opportunities do exist for internal promotion, and the school has a year-long induction programme and continuing, high quality professional development including online PD.  Teachers are initially offered a one year contract, which can be extended by mutual agreement. Moscow is a vibrant city and BIS Moscow is a very supportive school, encouraging staff to enjoy the whole range of benefits the city has to offer.

Every year the British International School of Moscow seeks to employ a number of highly talented teachers join their extremely successful school. The successful candidate will possess the desire to create a happy, challenging and effective learning environment.

We welcome applications from committed, enthusiastic individuals who look forward to an incredible opportunity working in one of Moscow’s most prestigious schools.
