College Aims and Ethos


  • To create a safe, warm and exciting learning environment where we will prepare students for a seamless and happy transition to a British boarding school.
  • To ensure that students leave Bishopstrow, not only able to feel comfortable in a classroom with English speakers, but being able to compete academically in their next school.
  • To provide the building blocks for children to develop a passion for life and learning, encouraging them to set themselves high standards, to fulfil their potential, and to grow in self-esteem and confidence.
  • To create an atmosphere of respect and tolerance for others through promoting British values of fairness, individuality, mutual respect and tolerance of those from different cultures.



Bishopstrow College has five core values that are at the centre of everything we do. These are:

  • To be hard working.
  • To be a team player.
  • To be kind.
  • To be polite.
  • To be organised.
