Head of School Message

A warm welcome to our online window to The British School Manila. At BSM we embrace a clear Purpose and Direction where our efforts are dedicated to developing and leading a learning community with the relevant resources in order to honour our commitment to the educational experience we want for all students. Our core values of Respect, Integrity and Kindness are woven into the fabric of our school community and shared principles.

We are steadfast in our commitment to provide an educational environment where children can flourish, are happy, healthy and resilient learners; sentient global citizens who are self-aware and reflective.

I am immensely proud to be a part of the BSM family, and honoured by the opportunity to work in a school of true international quality and standing. We focus on providing a host of opportunities in the classroom and beyond offering a rich platform for our children to develop into independent, confident and resourceful learners. Each school initiative, development and concept are grounded in international best practice and research and, passionately brought to life by caring and dedicated professionals.
