About British International School of Tunis (BIST)

The British International School of Tunis provides an engaging, inspirational and rounded education for children.

Our pupils are encouraged to develop the academic skills and personal resources that will enable them to live fulfilling lives wherever they may find themselves, while engaging with the cultural diversity of our unique location for a truly international perspective.

We welcome pupils from the entire region, including local families and those from further afield. Our learning environment is supportive and challenging, meeting the highest standards as recognised by the Council of British International Schools and the British Government’s inspection of overseas schools.

Our Vision

Our aim is to create life-long learners with a passion for knowledge and adventure, fully equipped to meet the challenges of a dynamic world.

Along with high academic standards, we provide a sound moral and social framework for the healthy development of the individual.

We value diversity and recognise that every pupil is an individual with individual needs. Our ethos is to respond to each child according to those needs with compassion, understanding and whole-hearted support.

Our location provides a wonderful opportunity to share in the perspectives of a particularly vibrant culture. We therefore encourage our pupils to develop an understanding of the Arabic language and culture that will enrich their sense of global belonging whether they choose to stay in Tunis or travel beyond.
