A Welcome From Our Principal

Learn about why the British International School of Houston is one of the best private schools in Houston from Principal Andrew Derry.

  • Andrew Derry

I am delighted to welcome you to the British International School of Houston.

As a community of teachers, parents and students, we are rightfully proud of our school. With a modern pedagogical approach and a firm focus on learning, we personalise our approach so that each individual can be successful now, and in their future.

We believe in each child's amazing potential, and this belief is fuelled by a personalized learning philosophy. This philosophy sets us apart, as personalization here is more detailed and extensive than in other schools.

We purposefully strive to create a balance of a supportive and nurturing environment that encourages our students to be ambitious, take risks and grow. A culture of high expectations throughout our entire community allows our students to be highly successful and balanced in all areas.

Although it is only one measure of the growth we aim for in our students, our external examination results confirm this success.

  • 100% pass-rate at IB Diploma for the past 5 years.
  • 37 average point score at IB Diploma
  • 57% of all grades at iGCSE either A* or A

In addition, as part of the Nord Anglia Education family of schools around the world, our students and staff have exciting opportunities that extend far beyond the normal classroom and broaden their horizons on a daily basis.

While the pages in the website give you a small sense of what a wonderful school this is, of course, they can never convey the whole picture. Indeed, every day as I walk around the school, I am constantly reminded of how engaging, confident, balanced and polite our students of all ages are.

So, I warmly invite you to contact us to take that walk around school with us.


Andrew Derry
