International School

Education is the lifeblood of progress. The English education system is ranked as the 6th best education system in the world 1 (the USA is ranked at 14, France is 23rd and Italy 25th). The Academy houses the only International British School in the Republic of Congo. Located in Pointe-Noire, the school follows the statutory programmes of study and attainment targets of the National curriculum of England. The school's teachers are qualified and experienced. The teachers are from the USA, the United Kingdom, Australia and other Anglophone countries. Fully equipped, modern and safe, the school caters for children aged from early years foundation stage to the end of Primary School, and then to year 8. Families who thus want their children to have an English-based education can rest assured that our school in Pointe-Noire will nurture and educate their children to an equivalent standard of education that their children would receive in the United Kingdom.  Pupils who have attended the International British Primary School will be able to transition seamlessly to any English-based school in any country after leaving the Congo. Many schools in Pointe-Noire offer children an International education but the AIBPS International School has the facilities, teachers and resources to call itself truly International. The school provides education for the children of employees of all the major International companies in Pointe-Noire, TOTAL E&P, ENI, Schlumberger, Weatherford, Tractafric, Air Liquide, Congo Terminal, SGS, and many more, as well as providing education for the children of individual families. Having children from over 20 different nationalities attend the school is an especially proud achievement for the school. Do have a look at the AIBPS pictures on the web site, but most importantly come and pay us a visit.
