Jarrod Gaines, Head of the BIS Secondary School

The Student Voice Is Very Important To BIS

A total of 25 generations of young people have so far graduated from the British International School. Many of them have gone on to enrol in and graduate from universities around the world, achieving excellent academic results. The school is very proud of this fact

The British Curriculum we teach at BIS is the Cambridge International system. The programmes we teach meet the internationally recognised standard, ISO 9001:2015. – says BIS Secondary School Head Jarrod Gaines, pointing out that Cambridge International is recognised by Ofqual (Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation).

Many of your pupils over the 25 years of the school’s operations have go on to enrol in and graduate from universities around the world. You must be very proud…

The focus at BIS is on providing an engaging and inspirational learning environment and a curriculum that leads to fully-rounded learners. We aim to develop knowledgeable, confident and creative young people who are then able to access the finest learning institutions worldwide.

Every year we see dozens of graduates leave BIS and pass the rigorous application process to begin their studies at institutions all over Europe and beyond. It is an immense source of pride that our students are able to make a positive contribution to the wider future society in this way.

Our schemes of work from year 7 through to year 13 prepare school students for life, helping them develop an informed curiosity and an enduring passion for learning

Could you explain, as succinctly as possible, the differences between the Serbian curriculum and the British one?

The British Curriculum we teach at BIS is the Cambridge International system. The programmes we teach meet the internationally recognised standard, ISO 9001:2015. Cambridge International is recognised by Ofqual (Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) and its KS4 and KS5 programmes have been further assessed by UK NARIC, which recognises that the provision of education is ‘robust qualifications that are comparable to the standard of UK GCSE and A Level’. Our schemes of work from year 7 through to year 13 prepare school students for life, helping them develop an informed curiosity and an enduring passion for learning.

Leadership is among the main principles of the BIS philosophy. Do you seek to educate future leaders, visionaries; people who will be able to provide a positive contribution to the society of the future?

It is our mission to ensure that all our students excel in all areas, both personally and academically. This means supporting our young people in becoming future leaders in any field they choose to work in. The student voice is very important to us at BIS and it is through these mechanisms that we encourage leadership and nurture our students towards being bold and brave in their approach to life. Students across all year groups are given opportunities to apply their leadership skills via such things as the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, Wellbeing Ambassadors, students council and Model United Nations.
