WELCOME TO BIS SECONDARY SCHOOL
Welcome to British International School, Ghana. Our school is one of the most successful and prestigious schools in the Ghana. Our exceptional academic standards sit easily beside great endeavor and success in a wide range of other activities. BISG as a school is where, not only your child but your whole family will be welcomed and valued as a member of our community. We are very much conscious of the privilege we enjoy by virtue of being invited into the academic and emotional development of your child.
Living in a fast advancing world where the education that we give our children is more important than it has ever been, it behooves on us to ensure that they are assiduously groomed for an adult world that is no longer confined to national borders. Our goal is to make our leaners function positively in a truly interdependent world with global challenges. Our focus is equipping learners with adequate skills to navigate their chosen paths successfully. Malcolm Gladwell once postulated, “Practice isn’t the thing you do once you’re good. It’s the thing you do that makes you good.” In that light, we give our students as many opportunities as possible to practice, discover and learn from their mistakes as the initial steps to carving their names in the sands of time.
At BIS, we prepare learners to be the best they can be in a number of ways. Obviously, we want them to achieve the best that they can as they apply concepts learnt from school to face daily challenges. In making them lifelong learners, students are given the opportunity to explore, create and collaborate with others to solve complex problems.
This year, our guiding theme is, “Discipline; our tool for achieving excellence”. It is our expectation that action will be taken to help learners cultivate the desired positive habits for unleashing their individual potentials for maximum performance. The school administration will work so hard to ensure every member of the family achieves the set objective.
Education is not a preparation for life, but life itself, Welcome to the life of excellence.
