Our Mission & Values

At The British International School Bratislava we seek to prepare our students for their role in a challenging and rapidly changing world. We provide an environment that is nurturing, academically stimulating and internationally aware. Our students develop as confident, open-minded, respectful young people, inspired to become responsible and active global citizens.

Having a clear school vision is vital to giving the whole school community direction and purpose. The following statement accurately captures the essence of what we all strive for at BISB:

Innovate together. Inspire others. Be ambitious.


A Unique take on education

We live in a world in which innovation is exciting and essential to ensure a thriving society. It will be our students who solve existential issues created in our lifetimes, and to do this, they will need the mindset to come up with new ideas. We need to teach our students how to innovate collaboratively and share these innovations with our community. At BISB, we want our students to innovate together.

Within a warm and sharing community, BISB loves nothing more than to share the successes of our students. When students see their peers excelling in academics, the arts and sports, it serves to inspire others. This collective celebration is vital to helping our students realise the impact their endeavours can have on others around them.

Across our global family of schools, we create an atmosphere where ideas are embraced, where students learn alongside teachers and where, above all, we have incredible outcomes within our community. From guiding nursery students in learning their first words to achieving world-class IB scores, the simplicity of the Nord Anglia "Be Ambitious" motto influences all that we do.

We put our students first

As a parent, you want the best for your child. So do we. We promise to support your child as they achieve more than they ever thought possible. We believe that:

•              There is no limit to what every student can achieve.

•             Creativity and challenges help us get better every day.

•             Learning objectives should be personalised to each child.

•             Unique global opportunities enhance learning experiences.

What does this mean for your child?

We firmly believe that our school vision guides us to look to the future, inspire others and shoot for the stars. When it comes to delivering the best opportunities for students, few organisations go above and beyond like BISB.

Our outstanding teachers nurture essential skills through a personalised learning approach. We build on each student's individual strengths and passions. What's more, our school creates challenges in lessons and activities so that they continuously grow and learn. We offer unique experiences to open new opportunities.

Our family of schools empowers students to achieve beyond what they may have thought possible on an academic, social and personal level. This is the Nord Anglia Approach.

New Educational Experiences

We educate your child to be an active, independent student. Learning is enhanced through collaborations with the world's best organisations such as Juilliard, MIT and UNICEF. We provide the opportunity for students to participate in regional events and global expedition programmes.

An Impressive Curriculum

We teach globally respected curricula for excellent academic outcomes. Unique in Bratislava, we offer both the English National Curriculum and IBDP. Following the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program with our oldest students leads to a highly regarded qualification, seen as the Gold Standard. Our programmes are recognised by all international universities.

Learn New Cultures And Perspectives

Families value our welcoming, multicultural, international school community. We are part of a worldwide family of schools, with a Global Campus connecting over 70 schools and 65k students around the world. In Bratislava, our multicultural school community of over 40 nationalities gives your child access to cultures and ideas from around the world.
