The British International School of Tunis (BIST) was founded in 2012 by a group of British families and Tunisian investors. Since starting as a small school it now operates from Nursery to Year 11 and will offer A Levels in 2021.

As the premier school in Tunisia, we are the only school to be a member of COBIS, a registered Cambridge Examination Centre and inspected by British Schools Overseas. The school offers impeccable academic standards together with outstanding pastoral care. Expectations for scholastic achievement together with emotional well being are promoted throughout the school.

All teachers are British trained and subject specialists, who work in partnership with local language teachers and support assistants. Teachers undergo continuing professional development both in the school and in the United Kingdom, ensuring the school keeps up to date with the very best educational practices.

The school works closely in partnership with parents and in 2019 will launch its new Apollo programme, drawing together classroom practice with workshops for parents. We recognise that this close relationship can only benefit the development of the children we teach.

BIST is now at a very exciting stage in its journey, we will integrate beach school into our primary learning and introduce an outdoor classroom. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, delivering skills for life, including a wide range of Cambridge International iGCSE exams at secondary.

The school places a strong emphasis on music and the Performing Arts as well as sport. We believe that extra curricular activities enhance academic and personal development.

At BIST we put children first and believe in both excellence and happiness. Come and join us!
