British International College Bryanston

British International College Bryanston

The British International Colleges aim to provide students of above average academic ability with a learning environment in which their potential can be realised.

The group began its life as a simple sixth form college in Bryanston in the previous century, offering A Levels to students who had finished their Matric and had the ambition and intelligence for which the College is so well known. Following its runaway success, the College began to offer O Levels as well, sourcing the finest lecturers from around the world to guide hungry young minds through what is undoubtedly the most well recognised and highly regarded education system in the world.

As the College blossomed, it burst into the new millennium with too many students for its space to handle, as word spread that superior education was now an option in South Africa, and so ground was broken at the beautiful premises on Bryanston Drive that so many students and staff now call their home-away-from-home.

Subjects Offered

Foundation

Students of 13 to 14 years of age who have completed grades 7 or 8 will be introduced to a wide range of disciplines in order to give them maximum flexibility of choice for their future direction. They sit the Cambridge Checkpoint examinations in November which are designed to ensure that our students are on a par with students of equivalent age elsewhere in the world in the vital subjects of Mathematics, Science and English and are ready to begin their international GCSE studies.
