Dear Friends and Visitors,

Welcome to Bonn International School (BIS) and our thriving school community.

I invite you to explore our site to experience a sense of life and learning at BIS. In addition to facts and figures, I hope you take away an appreciation for the relationships cultivated between the diverse members of our community and how these accelerate the development and growth of every learner.

Our educational programmes focus on discovering and nourishing individual potential and inspiring each one of us to achieve our personal best. Our curriculum connects classroom learning to real life, making it relevant and powerful. Equally, it cultivates intellectual curiosity, independence and academic rigour. Our students are future-ready, practised in independent learning and confident in the positive impact they can make in the world.

Underpinning our academic programmes is a focus on wellbeing, agility and resilience. This leads to a growth mindset and positive attitude toward life-long learning in each of our students (and their teachers!). A sense of belonging and partnership unites our community and empowers our students to be confident, take risks and pursue their passions.

Director, Dr Sims discusses with students their impressions of the Diploma Visual Arts Exhibition

We are fortunate to have a large riverside campus which provides the generous spaces, resources and technology needed for students and teachers to succeed.

BIS also benefits greatly from its host city, Bonn, a university town, which is also the hub of the United Nations in Germany and home to many international companies and non-governmental organizations. Bonn affords an outstanding quality of life and sits in one of the most picturesque and well-connected parts of central Europe.

Whether you are choosing the right school for your children, interested in teaching at BIS, or revisiting as an alumni, we welcome your visit and look forward to meeting you in person.

Dr Robert Sims
School Director
