Established in 2012, The British International School of Tunis (BIST) provides an engaging, inspirational and caring education for young children, following the UK National Curriculum. BIST currently delivers Nursery through Year 12 and is expanding into Year 13 in September 2021. Our population across the primary and secondary is approximately 300 pupils.
Our student body reflects the international nature of our community, with over 30 nationalities represented in our school. Our teachers are either British or have trained in the UK and have extensive experience teaching both in the UK and internationally. All class teachers are also supported by full-time trained teaching assistants.
We engage children with the cultural diversity of our unique location for a truly international experience: the school embraces everything that is good about prestigious British schools and the UK curriculum and unites an international perspective with a Tunisian touch.
We have developed an enviable reputation for encouraging students to be creative, problem solvers and independent thinkers with high expectations for academic achievement.
Our learning environment is supportive and challenging. We are constantly looking to improve our facilities within a small campus and we are currently have several building and refurbishment projects planned to be ready for September 2021.
We are an accredited member of the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) and we have recently been inspected under the UK Government’s British Schools Overseas (BSO) framework. Our school has been awarded good for the quality of pupils’ academic achievements, and excellent for the quality of the pupils’ personal development.
Tunisia is a welcoming and friendly country. At the heart of the cultural flows of history for thousands of years, it has beautiful scenery, wonderful beaches, desert oases, and a sunny climate. It is situated on the Mediterranean close to Europe making international weekends very possible.
The school is situated in a privileged position, on the Northern outskirts of Tunis, in a mostly expatriate coastal town on the Mediterranean. In this affluent area you will find many facilities such as international restaurants, hotels, sports clubs and shopping malls. Many of our teachers live around the beach areas and take advantage of the diverse activities that come with living by the sea.
We are located a few minutes away from world famous sites such as Sidi Bou Said and Carthage. Many of the most important ancient historical sites in North Africa are just a short drive from Tunis. We are also very close to the main international airport of Tunis-Carthage, which is 10 minutes away from our school.
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.
