Our mission is a statement of values, ethos and guiding principles. It is also practical. As such, it challenges us, our relationships and our behaviour. It is applicable and relevant, expressed in such a way as to act as a guide to all that we do as members of the BISB community.
It is provocative rather than passive, inspiring debate, discussion and reflection. It raises questions and invites us to interrogate its meaning. It is a touchstone for future action, providing us with questions that can help determine strategic plans and decisions. It is ambitious and aspirational.
The British International School, Budapest is a caring, multicultural community where the development of the intellect is complemented by the pursuit of personal and interpersonal growth.
We aspire to excellence. We pursue deep learning in all that we do, through disciplined inquiry, reflection and perseverance.
We act with integrity. We are true to ourselves, our values and our community.
We embrace diversity. We believe that each child’s individuality is defined through our differences and that together we can achieve more than we can alone.
We cultivate responsibility. We foster personal responsibility and global citizenship for a sustainable, peaceful future.
We nurture each student’s ambitions, through the development of the skills, resources and dispositions to thrive, in school, through university and throughout life.
