Staff Profile: Simon Higham


Head Teacher, Junior Campus

Having visited Vietnam as one of my first trips to Asia, I quickly fell for its energy,  vibrancy and of course, it's delicious food! 

BIS, epitomises my educational philosophy - the commitment to educating the whole child in a challenging and collegiate environment. To lead within such an environment is a privilege and one that I very much enjoy.
