International Diversity & Languages

The curriculum is adapted to suit the needs of the different nationalities of students at BIC. The prime goal is a high quality of English language taught and spoken in the school. We are committed to ensuring an English speaking environment for native speakers and learners of English alike.

The majority of pupils are native speakers who have their skills and competence in the use of their language extended, enabling them to benefit from the experience of working and playing with a global community.

Special features of the programme are the high profile given to the extensive Language Programme, which includes English, Spanish and German.
