'These exceptional results are the culmination of the hard work and dedication of our students, our ambitious approach and the support of our excellent teachers. On behalf of our school community, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our teachers for always inspiring and challenging our students to achieve more than what they may have thought possible.,' said Ian Piper, Principal of BISW.

They are respected by universities and employers and offer students the opportunity to study a broad range of subjects in preparation for further study aged 16-18 through the International Baccalaureate Diploma program.
