Return of Textbooks

All students, with the exception of Year 10 and 12, should return all textbooks to the Resource Centre. This is essential for leaving students in particular.

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.

Last Day of Term / Start of Next Year

School finishes on Thursday 23rd June at 12.45pm. We ask that all students in Years 7-10 & 12 be in attendance up until that time.

Term 1 next year commences on Monday 22nd August 2016. The school calendar for next year can be found at: https://www.bisphuket.ac.th/theme-content/uploads/2014/11/Calendar-2016-17.pdf. On day 1, all students should report to the foyer of the Main Teaching Building and check the noticeboards for their name, tutor allocation and room. Senior staff will be on hand to direct students.

Please note the times for next year’s Secondary Timetable. For those parents who have been with us a number of years, the significant change is that Wednesday is now the same timings as a Monday. More information about schedules at the beginning of next year.
