From the Principal

Welcome to the British International School of Tunis

Martin Nugent

Being part of the family of British International Schools is about providing the best possible education – one that creates lifelong learners with a passion for knowledge and adventure, fully equipped to meet the challenges of a dynamic world. By using outstanding teachers, experts in their field, we provide an exciting, challenging and hugely rewarding education. We inspire them to take any opportunity that comes their way. We encourage them to embrace experiences, learn from each other, and be inspired by those great people who influenced the history of the world through writing, politics, music, art, sport, poetry and science. Such greats as William Shakespeare, Isaac Newton, Florence Nightingale, Charles Darwin, Samuel Johnson, Jane Austen and Winston Churchill, to name but a few, have all benefited from the British education system. We aim to be inspired by those educated in this way and use them to set ambitious goals.

Tunisia has always had major historical significance, a centre of civilisation and a mixture of cultures. We use this throughout school life to enhance our provision and by drawing on the unique character of British, French and Arabic influences. We expect our children to excel and take the very best from all of their surroundings and use this to become truly International in their outlook, in a world that is becoming ever smaller through technology and is always connected through language, finance and business.

 Here at The British International School of Tunis, children are given the chance to share traditions unique to the British school system and to forge lifelong friendships. They learn to value and support one another and pursue all manner of scholarly endeavours. They are encouraged to test themselves physically in teams and individual sports. We create an environment where they can express themselves artistically, physically and academically whatever their talents or interests. We aim to strengthen and develop these talents even if they are yet undiscovered.

By the end of their British education we equip our children to be global citizens and to take on challenges for their future. We create an environment where children have the determination to build strong relationships and to sustain them. They learn to serve, as well as lead others, to make a difference and to have an impact on the world.

 The British International School of Tunis is just the start of a life of learning, leadership, service and personal fulfilment.

 I invite you to visit our school and I hope that you too wish to become part of the life of The British International School of Tunis.

 Mr. M. Nugent. B.Ed(Hons) N.P.Q.H,
