Headmaster

Welcome to the British International School, Phuket (BISP), an extraordinary school situated at the heart of this extraordinary island on the fringe of the Andaman Sea.

The school is fast approaching the end of its second decade, and has established itself as an innovative institution with a strong commitment to ‘Learning about Learning’, and producing young people with the necessary skills to meet the challenges of a fast developing world.

While the existing facilities are exceptional, the school is undertaking a programme of refurbishment which will provide a solid base for continued enhancement, both academic and sporting, for well into the future.

There are, of course, many dimensions to the school not least of which is its multi-national student body, with well over half of the student population coming from outside of Thailand. However, it will become more apparent as you browse our website and examine the academic programmes, that there are some unique aspects to a BISP education that ensure that the whole is far greater than the sum of its impressive parts.

I feel highly privileged to be a member of this school’s strong academic team, and, after a long career in school management, I am more than pleased to answer any questions on the school, or on education in general, that prospective parents and visitors might have. I look forward to such an opportunity.
