Founder's welcome

Dear reader,

Welcome to our educational institution, a crossover between national and international education; a place where students and cultures interweave through corridors and learn to learn.

Since 1995, we have successfully been operating our first Croatian Primary School named ‘Kreativan razvoj’, a private educational institution that has been operating for twenty three years now. Thereafter, in autumn 2013, we opened the British International School of Zagreb - the first English school in Croatia offering a UK based educational curriculum.

Since then, progress has been vast and exceptional. Over the last five years our international school has received numerous accreditations and rewards (COBIS, CAIE, Cambridge Strategies and Innovation 800, IPC, and ISO to name a few), thus making BISZ one of the leading pioneer schools not only domestically but at the international level.

Our latest project and innovation is the opening of an on-campus ‘Boarding School’ starting from autumn 2019. The new residence is to cater for the needs of our international students as they can reside at school, making their learning experience and memories even more memorable.

Starting school is an important step in your child’s education and life, therefore emphasis is placed on the right choice. We believe in educating the whole child where academic progress, social values, personal development and thinking skills will help your child develop into a responsible global citizen, guided by our school’s values of honesty, independence, tolerance and respect for others.

BISZ has unique modern, purpose built facilities of (9,000m2 of indoor and 25,000m2 of outdoor space), offering outstanding academic and sporting experiences. The location of the school is placed in a wonderful valley just 5km outside of Zagreb`s city centre.

As the founder of the British International School of Zagreb, I welcome you to visit our international school and see for yourself the values of gaining a UK based National Curriculum, to experience the difference our BISZ education programme can make in the life of young students, thus helping prepare your child for the valued challenges and opportunities that life brings.

I look forward to meeting you.
