Head’s Welcome

Welcome to the website of the British Academy of Tunis, Tunisia. We are in the very early stages of an exciting project to set up and develop a top-class international school right here in Tunis. For the moment, we have all of the primary classes open and one lower secondary class. Our teaching is based on the International Primary and Lower Secondary Programmes of the Cambridge Assesment International Education group. In the not too distant future, we shall be offering the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) followed by the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), This will eventually give our students access to the top universities in the world.
Our vision is to prepare our students for the rigours of the outside world that awaits them . They need to be nurchered to become caring and responsible Global Citizens of their planet, capable of leading happy and meaningful lives.




On a personal level, I bring with me a wealth of experience from the world of international education. I have lived and worked in twelve different countries including France, Spain, Singapore, Mozambique, Malawi, Switzerland, Egypt, UK (my country of origin), Dubai, Nigeria and last but not least, Togo in West Africa where I was the Headmaster of the British School of Lomé until very recently.
Whenever you are in Tunis, call by and visit us!
