The BISI National School is a division of “The British School İstanbul”. The British School İstanbul has been one of the leading educational institutions in the sector for 28 years and continues to have a global range of schools.
The BISI National School is located in Zekeriyaköy, İstanbul and welcomes Turkish families. It provides the atmosphere and standards expected of an international educational environment so that our students become positive lifelong learners and world citizens who appreciate cultural diversity. BISI has many established teachers who have been in our school for many years. They are fortunate to have many fresh faces to help build our approaches to teaching and learning fresh! At BISI we believe that every child deserves the best possible start in life for them to fulfil their potential. We provide a fun and stimulating learning environment in a secure and happy setting. Our highly experienced class and specialist teachers create a holistic curriculum with individualised learning to suit the needs of every pupil.
The BISI National School hosts students from the ages of 3 to 13 years with foreign and Turkish nationalities. Provides students with an international environment where they enjoy sports and nature in addition to more traditional classroom-based education with the many facilities offered by the campus. It has a Botanic Garden with an amphitheatre and an allotment garden, a modern school theatre, libraries, computer suites using Apple technology and well-equipped science laboratories, indoor gymnasiums, an all-weather sports pitch, a basketball/volleyball, tennis court and a heated swimming pool.

We aim to ensure all children are supported and challenged in all lessons through differentiated learning.
The BISI National School students are taught a unique academic programme referencing both the Turkish National Curriculum, Cambridge Curriculum and the British National Curriculum. Individual students achieve their full academic potential, inspired to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens of the global community. The international learning environment and combined activities provide an opportunity for students to learn English-Spanish and French by using them as a communication language.
At BISI National School, we encourage the students;
- Explore and find out about the world around them, asking questions about it,
- Build with different materials, know about everyday technology and learn what it is used for,
- Find out about past events in their lives and their families lives,
- Find out about different cultures and beliefs.
Parents are valued as the first educators of their children and we work closely with families to ensure the best outcomes for all our children. We believe that the relationship between parent-teacher and school admin is extremely influential on a child’s future success and growth both in and outside of the classroom.
This stage is a very important step for your child's future learning skills and success. From the time your child is born until the age of 5, early life experiences should be happy, active, exciting, fun and safe, and should support their development, interest and learning needs.
Preschoolers learn by playing, exploring, and actively thinking creatively and critically through activities both inside and outside the classroom.
In the Primary School Department of our school, we host students between the ages of 5 and 10. Thanks to the unique academic programs we offer, our students have a very successful school experience.
Again, thanks to our unique curriculum, we offer our students courses in many different traditional disciplines such as Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), Music, Art and Sports.
