British International School, Phuket is open to students of all nationalities

English language is the medium of teaching and learning and so participation in all aspects of school life requires a command of English. Very young children, who absorb language as part of their normal development are not necessarily expected to have a high language ability. We review a student’s ability and suitability for a place at BISP and will include reference to recent reports/transcripts from current and previous schools.

The school seeks to ensure that there is a balance of pupil nationalities and that we maintain our status as a truly ‘international school’.

BISP considers that all students have individual needs and attention to these is part of our educational practice. When students require additional support they are assisted by Learning Support teachers, counsellors or outside external agencies in consultation with parents and appropriate professionals.

Admission to the school and allocation to particular classes are authorised by the Head of Primary and Head of Secondary.

Applications are accepted for entry at any time during the school year.
