The British International School (BIS) Hanoi, is a selective, independent, co-educational day school that provides a British style education for an international student body in the vibrant and cultured city of Hanoi.
In August 2012 the British Vietnamese International School Hanoi with Mr Anthony Rowlands as its Founding Principal was opened by the “BIS Group of Schools in Vietnam”. It operated as a dual language school in the Long Bien area of Hanoi on a new housing development called Vinhomes Riverside.
The school was the second BVIS school to open with the first being in HCM City the previous year. Following the opening of a third BVIS school in the Royal City Complex, Hanoi a strategic decision regarding educational provision was made by the BIS Group of Schools.
It was decided that BVIS Vinhomes Riverside would offer a full International programme and that BVIS Royal City would remain as the dual language school. This meant that both educational programmes could be offered by the BIS Group in Hanoi which mirrored the provision already in place in HCM City. Therefore, from August 2014 the school began operating as the British International School, Hanoi.
