With its 44 acre campus and multi-purpose facilities, BISP is able to offer the majority of its extracurricular activities on campus. The convenience which this provides encourages the take-up of new activities amongst inquisitive students, and creates a rich and vibrant passion-led culture at the school.
BISP students enrolled in our sports academies have the benefit of access to professional coaching and training. A number of activities are delivered by professional, expert coaches and practicing professionals, removing any glass ceiling to the learning experience at BISP.
We introduce extracurricular activities at an early age at BISP. Students as young as 3 are invited to participate in introductory activities such as the Early Years learn to swim Sea Eagle programme, and to then build the range and depth of their participation on a progressive basis, tailored to their needs. This ensures a manageable balance of curricular and extracurricular study at the school and an all-around enriching experience.
All teachers at BISP contribute their expertise to the free activities on offer. In addition to these, BISP brings together partnered providers on the island for additional subsidised activities such as horse-riding and rock-climbing. This expands the range of activities on offer and ensures that the needs of all students are catered for.
Recent studies have shown that there is a positive correlation between extracurricular participation and academic achievement. The culture of activity participation at BISP, the convenience of taking part in activities on campus and the range of activities on offer, translate into extraordinarily high participation rates in activities. This encourages all students to try new activities and to find their passion.
