Secondary School /

Our Upper School is made up of seven levels thus organized: Checkpoint 1 to 3, IGCSE 1 & 2 and AS and A Levels.

Checkpoint 1 to 3

BIS follows the Cambridge guidelines for this level focusing on 3 core subjects, namely: English Language, Mathematics and Science. We continue to create a well rounded student by offering other subjects such as History, Geography, Business Studies, Portuguese Language and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), English Literature and Accounting that the children are exposed to and study.

IGCSE 1 & 2

This is the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) group. At this level we offer such subjects as English Language, Mathematics, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Business Studies, Geography, History, Portuguese and Computer Studies. Upon successfully writing and passing their examinations at the end of IGCSE 2, students can then proceed to the Cambridge Advanced Subsidiary (AS) or the Advanced (A) Level studies.

These are the Cambridge Advanced Subsidiary and Cambrigde Advanced Level courses. Subjects offered are Mathematics, English, Business Studies, Information Technology, Geography, Accounting, Biology Chemistry, Physics and Portuguese.

The comprehensive education BIS provides places students in the best position for a successful young adult life. They leave our halls with a confident, global outlook on life, and the skills to navigate the rigours of university life.
