A very warm welcome to the
2021-22 academic year!
For those in the community that do not know me; this is my 17th year at BISI and my 2nd year as Director, I am originally from the UK. A teacher of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, I now enjoy creating the school timetable, cooking (at home, not in the school canteen), taking photographs and overseeing the operations of the secondary school and Zekeriyakoy campus. Our school is a unique and special place, the diversity of our community and curriculum is reflected in our school motto – education transcends boundaries. We are rightly proud of the amazing achievements of our students and of the truly international nature of our school. We have families from over 40 different countries and experienced staff from 6 continents. Whilst education is always our main focus, safety during this period of a global pandemic has been, and continues to be, an important aspect of our operational practices, BISI will continue to meet and exceed the requirements of the Turkish government and puts the education and safety of students first and foremost.
