  • How to apply

Step 1: Contact Us

We aim to provide a friendly and informative service. We are very happy to offer information by telephone or email so please contact our admissions team using the contacts below. We accept admissions throughout the year.

Online Enquiry form:  Admissions Enquiry Form


Tel: +4212 6930 7081

Step 2: Book an Admissions Visit

Nothing can replace a face-to-face visit and tour of our school – but when that isn't possible, a Virtual Discovery Meeting is the next best thing.  Once we’ve learned more about you and your family’s needs, we’ll arrange a convenient time for your personalised 1:1 meeting with our Admissions team in which you can discover more about our educational offer and get answers to any questions you may have.

Step 3: The Application

Once you have made the decision to join our school, there are a few steps to take before we offer a place. We ask you to submit the following documents:

  • The completed  Online Application Form 
  • A copy of your child’s passport
  • A copy of recent school reports
  • SEN reports (if applicable) *

*Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

We have a dedicated team of learning support specialists who can provide for a range of needs. The provision is limited, however. If your child has social, emotional, academic, physical, developmental or behavioural challenges, you need to discuss this with us fully at this stage. We may not have the capacity to cater to your child and it is better to know this before proceeding.

Step 4: Assessment

For Early Years – Year 6: No formal assessment is required. The place will be offered upon the evaluation of the Application form, previous school reports and places available in specific year groups.

For Year 7 – 9 applicants:  We ask all students to complete an online English test to establish the level of English and allocate a student to EAL/mainstream group.

For Year 10 -13 applicants: all students should sit Mathematics and English online tests. Level of English and previous school records are crucial in deciding if a student can be enrolled in these year groups.  All students should have an interview with the Head of Secondary in person, or online. This is essential before a place can be offered.

Step 5: Finalising the Enrolment Process

When steps 1 – 4 are complete, we are ready to offer a place and confirm a start date. We will require the following Supporting documents to finalise the enrolment process:

  • Education agreement
  • Consent forms
  • Responsibility for Fees form
  • A copy of your child's health insurance card
  • Transfer form (upon the request from the Admissions team)
  • Vaccination Confirmation (only for Nursery – Year 1 applicants)

Based on these documents, the school will send you an invoice for a non-refundable Registration fee (€900) and a refundable Deposit (€1200). The Admissions team will confirm the official enrolment upon the receipt of the registration fee and deposit.

Step 6: Starting School

Starting a new school can be a daunting experience for students as well as parents. Our school of over 40 nationalities makes us a diverse and welcoming community where parents and children enjoy making new friends. We have an active Parent Teacher Association (PTA) who, together with our class and country representatives, play a key role in ensuring each family is welcomed into BISB.

Before your child starts the school, you will receive a comprehensive welcome letter and whenever possible we will try to introduce you to your child`s teacher before his/her first day at school.

In August, before the beginning of the new school year,  we will offer a comprehensive orientation Welcome Day where you will be able to meet your child’s teacher and ask any outstanding questions to make sure your child settles in quickly and happily.
