Please note that the Group 4 Science Project and English IOC exams are scheduled for the week of 13th June and it is essential that all students are in school that week.  The Group 4 Project is a compulsory experience/experiment for all sciences and thus if a student does not do it, he/she cannot complete their IBDP in the desired timeframe.

Students leaving at the end of this year

A reminder that if your child is leaving at the end of this year you should complete the Withdrawal Form and return it to the Admissions Department before the end of the school year. This will then allow your Bond to be returned and in a timely manner. The form can be found at : https://www.bisphuket.ac.th/BIS-WITHDRAWAL-FORM-fill-in.pdf . Thank you for your assistance as we prepare for the year ahead. Once again some year levels are already approaching a wait list status.
