It is both a privilege and a wonderful feeling to write to you for the first time, as the second Head of Secondary of the British International School of Hanoi. Prior to taking up the role I spoke with Mr Short regularly and learned about the school from him and other members of the community. My early research filled me with enthusiasm for the school, as did the passion of Mr Short. However, nothing could have prepared me for the excitement I have felt this week, as I began discovering the school’s unique atmosphere in person.
Our training week for teachers has been excellent. The energy of the new staff combined with the warmth and friendliness of the returning school community has breathed life into the school after its summer sleep. By the time we welcomed the students back on Wednesday we felt ready to give our very best for your children.
It will be an extraordinary year. We have more students than ever before; an exciting curriculum that includes the International Baccalaureate programme and a group of incredible teachers who are determined to make this year the most successful one ever for your children. I look forward to sharing everything with you!
Mr. Tim Webb, Head of Secondary
