Who We Are - An Introduction to BIS Hanoi

The British International School Hanoi is a premium international school which offers the very best international education to students from around the world. BIS Hanoi has operated in the Long Bien district of Hanoi since 2012 and has a community of over 1000 students and more than 90 teachers. 

Our learning campus is a truly inspiring workplace, set in a picturesque corner of Vietnam’s vibrant capital city. We strive to create a warm, welcoming and inclusive environment for new international teachers and experienced international teachers alike. 

Join a Passionate Learning Community  

BIS Hanoi is home to a collaborative community of educators, students and support staff. Our busy international school is the perfect place for growth and development.  We encourage all staff to aid their personal development by taking on additional responsibilities and applying for the numerous leadership roles throughout the school. 

As part of the Nord Anglia global network of 76 premium schools, BIS shares the same professional work environment and high expectations as our partner schools. However we also give our teachers the freedom to test, innovate and explore new ways to create unique learning experiences for our students.  

The Students

Our staff love working with the aspirational, confident young people that make up the BIS Hanoi student community. The ambition and enthusiasm of our students makes day-to-day teaching richly rewarding. BIS Hanoi’s partnerships with organisations such as the Juilliard School in New York City and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology help our teachers to nurture student passions and inspire new ones.

World-class Facilities to Enable & Inspire

The outstanding facilities at our colourful learning campus allow our teachers to provide an unrivalled learning experience for students. Everyday learning is made inspiring and collaborative thanks to specialist learning suites and breakout zones for students to use. Our extensive library is packed with resources, as well as spaces for individual study or group working. The 1500 seat auditorium hosts numerous music, dance and drama performances throughout the year. 

When it comes to sports & recreation, our students enjoy the use of a 25m indoor swimming pool alongside a sports hall, playing fields and large playgrounds. Our Early Years students have their very own indoor & outdoor play areas complete with mist cooling system and splash pool.

Discover Vietnam’s Bustling Capital City

Affordable, welcoming and offering a truly unique blend of the traditional and modern - it’s easy to see why Hanoi is loved by expats. The city offers teachers and their families a vast range of opportunities; immerse yourself in the city’s rich history, enjoy the street food and cafe culture that forms an integral part of local life, or choose from an extensive range of international shops and restaurants. 

Hanoi is located in Vietnam’s northern provinces and offers countless opportunities for regional travel. Nearby UNESCO world heritage site Ha Long Bay can be reached by car or bus. Air, bus and rail connect Hanoi to iconic Vietnam destinations such as Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City, Hoi An and the Mekong Delta. Beyond Vietnam, East Asia is on your doorstep - with regular flights leaving for China, Hong Kong, Japan and beyond from Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport. 

Closer to home, our teachers have many opportunities to integrate with the school community. A diverse range of induction events are put on by our social committee each year, while weekly activities such as football & yoga are enjoyed by staff old and new.

Salary & Benefits

Hanoi is one of the most affordable cities to live in in South East Asia - and low living costs in Vietnam makes it easy for staff to enjoy a high standard of living. It even allows for the hire of cooks, nannies and personal trainers if desired. 

In addition to a competitive salary, BIS Hanoi staff can enjoy:

  • Furnished accommodation or a cash housing allowance
  • Medical insurance for the teacher and dependents
  • Annual return air tickets for the teacher and dependents
