Dear Parents,

I want to express my warmest wishes and deepest gratitude for the support you have given me during my role as Principal.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at BISK, but am leaving to move on to new pastures. I have wonderful memories of the fantastic students and the amazing year I have spent with them. I would also like to thank the staff for all their hard work and support.

Kindest regards

Claire Bell

BISK - Hawler

Dear Students and Parents/Carers,

Thank you for taking the time to browse our website. I hope you find it informative and that it answers any questions you may have. Please do not hesitate to contact us at school for any further information or to arrange a visit so that you can observe our school in ‘real life’.

I hope this brief glimpse of our school via our website gives you an insight into the life of The British International Schools in Kurdistan - Hawler, our ethos and vision for all our students. I know that we have so much to be proud of: a consistent record of achievement over a number of years; a varied programme of enrichment and enhancement opportunities for students; excellent links with our community, and a dedicated and talented team of staff who work diligently for the benefit of every student.

As a Cambridge approved International School, we are authorised to teach the University of Cambridge International syllabus and to conduct their examinations, allowing your child to gain internationally accredited and recognised qualifications.

Here at BISK we have 3 very simple Core Aims:

  • We will help each of our students achieve the highest and most relevant set of qualifications possible.
  • We will help our students become ‘well-rounded’ and caring individuals ready for their adult life.
  • We will achieve these in a collaboration of listening to and working for each other.

How do we work to achieve these? By creating positive working relationships with and between all.

Our commitment to high quality teaching and learning experiences provides the foundation for school and individual success. We recognise the potential of all our students and provide opportunities that challenge their abilities. We also have a large team of support staff who work selflessly to support some of our students who may find some of the demands of academic settings more of a challenge.

We endeavour to provide a high level of support, guidance and care to enable your child to achieve their potential. We truly are a school where Every Child Matters.

I hope you decide that The British International Schools of Kurdistan - Hawler is the right school for your son/daughter to fulfil their ambitions and aspirations, and I look forward to working with you over the coming years, in partnership.
