Ensure the proficiency of English and Vietnamese
First and foremost, BVIS nurtures the bilingual proficiency of each student from the international bilingual curriculum in Early Years which is based on the British Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. This well established and respected curriculum focuses upon the well-rounded development through a play-based activities within a safe, caring and stimulating environment.
The international bilingual curriculum continues into the Primary years which combines the English National Curriculum and International Primary Curriculum. With selected subjects taught separately in English and Vietnamese whilst others are delivered in both languages, BVIS thrives on bringing the best of Vietnamese and British education to all students, nurturing confident bilingual learners.
The proficiency in both languages forms a great foundation for our students to seamlessly transition to the globally recognised IGCSE and A Level programmes in Secondary, which are tailored to each student’s ability, needs and aspirations. From 50% English and 50% Vietnamese learning in Early Years and Primary, students progress to 80% English and 20% Vietnamese learning in the early years of Secondary (Year 7 to 9). When taking IGCSE and A level subjects, student learning is between 90% and 100% in English.
Building knowledge, skills, and characteristics of a global citizen
Throughout their educational journey, all members of the BVIS community are encouraged in order to foster universal values such as personal integrity, respect for others and care for the local and global community. This is achieved through our extensive curriculum and reinforced through diverse extracurricular activities and exciting expeditions both in Vietnam and across the globe.
Since joining Nord Anglia Education (NAE) in 2015, BVIS continues to offer unlimited learning experiences for all students, through unique collaborations with world-leading organisations such as MIT, Juilliard and UNICEF. The bespoke experiences are offered through our NAE Global Campus – a platform that allows students to connect and share creativity, discussion, and develop teamwork with friends around the world. Expeditions for students that are available through Global Campus include: Community focused service learning in Tanzania, Africa or participation in the UN High Level Conference in New York, USA.
