Principal's Welcome | BIS HCMC-Content Page Header-Image_BIS HCMC_2021_140

I would like to extend a warm welcome to the British International School Ho Chi Minh City. As the largest international school in Vietnam, we are very proud of our vibrant community and reputation for providing an outstanding quality of education and results. We value academic success highly, but it is also our belief that the all-round development of your child is just as important. Our students are ambitious, our teaching teams are innovative, and our school environment is dynamic, ensuring that the education on offer is among the very best available anywhere in the world.

Our school offers a British-style education to the international community of Ho Chi Minh City, leading to qualifications that are recognised, valued, and respected by the leading universities and institutes of further education. We are proud to be rated by the British government as an 'outstanding school in all categories'.

Our three campuses have first-class facilities, and our internationally qualified and highly experienced teachers deliver an educational experience that sees our students grow academically, emotionally, and socially. BIS HCMC teachers are typified by their dedication and commitment, and their continuing professional development means that we make the best use of contemporary educational practices.  

You will find that our school has a friendly and welcoming community, and new students very quickly feel at home. The happiness and contentment of our students is of utmost importance to us: the academic success that we have achieved here comes about through rigour, hard work, and discipline, but also through a very strong pastoral element that nourishes the emotional development of our students. 

This is absolutely vital, and it's why we purposefully nurture an environment that means students work hard, work well, but also take risks and try new ideas as their learning progresses. Indeed, students must be ambitious as global citizens learning together. 

If you are considering BIS for your child, our website will give you a snapshot of what our school is like and what we have to offer. However, the best way to learn more is to get in touch; we welcome your enquiries.  

We also encourage current members of the BIS community to check our website for updates and visit the news and events section to access our weekly newsletters.

We look forward to meeting you in person and talking to you about our educational programmes.

Principal of the British International School Ho Chi Minh City
