beyond the classroom


At BIST we feel that it is important for children to participate in activities outside of their classroom, to have a well-rounded and balanced school experience. We make the most of our indoor and outdoor spaces as well as the local area, offering children opportunities to engage with each other and the world around them.

A wide variety of optional after-school activities is offered to our students suiting all interests, from sports to science, crafts to computing. Children also get the chance to showcase their skills: singing, dancing and acting in school drama performances and concerts; showing off their maths and science knowledge during our subject fairs; competing in local and inter-school sports tournaments; and engaging in arts, debating and computing as part of our after-school programme.

Our proximity to Lisi Lake offers the school an amazing resource which is used for multiple sports activities and outdoor learning opportunities, such as orienteering, science trips, and volunteering at the local dog shelter. Moreover, each term, all children are given the opportunity to participate in a range of off-site field trips and activities that broaden their experience.
