Teacher/Pupil ratio 1:7 Bordeaux International School (BIS) is situated in the heart of the city. For children aged three to fourteen, the school offers a bilingual English/French education, and for older students, an English programme with a strong international dimension, leading to IGCSE and Advanced level examinations. A maximum class size of 14 students ensures a great deal of personal attention, and with students from over 20 different nationalities, an opportunity to flourish in a truly international environment.

BIS is an accredited member of the Council of International Schools (CIS), recognised by the French Ministry of Education, and a registered centre with the Cambridge International Examinations Board.

The school offers a boarding system either living with a French host family or family run boarding unit. There are also regular visits to theatres, art galleries and museums, a sports programme within the school, which is integrated with local sports clubs. Participation in the International Award Scheme and annual school trips including overseas are available.

At IGCSE level the students follow a programme of subjects with extra features: support and extended lessons either to help those students who are having difficulties or those who wish to extend their understanding and take exams a year early; French courses for all levels of competences; access to a dedicated website e-learning portal.

At Advanced-Level, BIS offers a unique educational experience, ensuring our students develop to their full potential. Studying at BIS combines the benefits of high quality teaching in English, with the experience of living in France, enjoying the culture, learning the French language, and gaining an international diploma (Cambridge International Advanced Level examinations). There are three elements to the International Advanced Level Programme at Bordeaux International School : Academic Study, Citizenship and International Awareness and extra-curricular activities.

These qualifications are internationally recognised by universities worldwide.
