BISP is excited to announce an addition to the BISP learning experience: the Innovation Centre, opening its doors in August 2024! This exciting new space embodies our commitment to fostering innovation and equipping our students with the skills they need to thrive in the future.

The BISP Innovation Centre is more than just a physical space; it’s a vibrant hub for creativity and collaboration, bringing together our talented students from diverse disciplines. The benefits extend beyond specialised departments – the flexible and stimulating environment will be accessible to all students, offering them opportunities to learn and explore beyond the confines of traditional classrooms.

At BISP, we believe that innovation is not just a buzzword; it’s a driving force within our educational philosophy. We see innovation as the cultivation of an inventive mindset, fostered through pedagogical practices that seamlessly integrate technology, encourage entrepreneurial thinking, and promote collaborative problem-solving. Our goal is to empower students to become future-ready, adept problem-solvers and changemakers who can shape the world around them. To realise this philosophy, BISP seamlessly integrates innovative practices into daily learning, encouraging entrepreneurial thinking and collaborative problem-solving.

Innovation Beyond the Curriculum

It’s important to understand that innovation isn’t a separate curriculum. The BISP Innovation Centre will serve as a catalyst for innovation, inspiring students, teachers, and even parents to think creatively within existing curricula or during enrichment programmes. Whether finding new ways to solve a challenging mathematical equation or developing a unique artistic concept, innovation is about embracing the extraordinary.

The BISP Innovation Centre: A Hub of Creativity

Our commitment to innovation will soon have a physical embodiment in the form of our new BISP Innovation Centre. This dynamic space will bring together the Computer Science, Design Technology, and Art and Design departments, as well as provide flexible, stimulating spaces for all students to use within and beyond lesson time.

Importantly, the Innovation Centre isn’t restricted to specialised departments. Classrooms will be adaptable and available for all teachers. It’s a space designed to let thinking flourish, whether through the use of technology or by simply encouraging out-of-the-box approaches to learning. We aim to go beyond traditional classroom approaches and spaces in order to enhance our student’s ability to approach tasks innovatively.

Innovative Spaces for Learning and Thriving

We recognise that having the right environment is crucial for students to learn, grow, and thrive. The BISP Innovation Centre is just the beginning. We envision creating more stimulating, dynamic learning spaces throughout the school, contributing to the overall mental and physical wellbeing of our student body.

Inspiration from Steve Jobs

Our commitment to innovation is fueled by the words of Steve Jobs, who famously said, “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” At BISP, we aspire to be leaders for tomorrow, instilling the spirit of innovation in every aspect of our learning community. Through collaborative partnerships, enriched programmes, and bespoke opportunities, we empower our students to thrive in the 21st century.

“Innovation is the ability to see change as an opportunity, not a threat.”
— Steve Jobs

Fostering the Spirit of Innovation

We are on an exciting journey to make innovation a fundamental part of the BISP learning experience. By providing our students with the tools, the spaces, and the encouragement they need, we believe they can unlock their full potential and become changemakers who will shape the future of our world for the better.
