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.

We are a truly remarkable school by any measure, preparing our students to be successful wherever they go. We are very ambitious and strive for exceptional external examination results at all levels. Indeed, our IB and iGCSE results are consistently among the very best in the world. Half of our graduating class were offered places at the world’s top 100 Universities and those attending colleges in North America were awarded an average of $120,000 per student in academic scholarships, along with 30 advanced credits.  

But this is only art of the story, at the same time, we recognise that we must fully prepare our students with the contemporary skills, attributes and concepts that prepare them for their fast-changing, globally connected, technology-rich future. In this regard, we are a close and supportive community of learners, with students placed firmly in the centre.

This is place where students are nurtured and guided to take ownership of their own learning, where students are engaged and active participants in real-world learning and problems. It is a place where leadership is an inherent part of everything we do, where students lead by example and understand the importance of community and service to the community.

To help guide us on our journey, we have three key strategic goals that guide us

1. Everything we do will focus on Learners and their Learning. 

2. We develop and nurture the World’s Future Leaders.

3. Whatever we do, we will always strive to be the Best of the Best, Globally.

In line with our strategic goals, our brand new, state of the art campus is built completely around the very individual and personalized needs of our learners, it is the most pedagogically advanced school building in the world.

In addition, our direct collaborations with the Juilliard School of Performing Arts M.I.T. and UNICEF provide our students with amazing opportunities to work directly with some of the world’s leading institutions.

No matter how hard we try, the pages of this website can only give you a glimpse in to one of the world’s leading schools. Our approach of putting learners and learning at the centre of everything we do makes us truly unique. I warmly welcome you to visit us whenever you can. We are very proud of our school and we will always take the time to show you around. 

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