    "This is another significant year for the development of the Yamsaard School Group. It turns to a new page with its introduction of the new school curriculums, after the arrival of the Educational Partnership Agreement signed with the Beaconhouse School System this year.

    Beaconhouse Yamsaard International School is our latest and most advanced school in terms of quality and educational development. The “BYIS” aims to offer students the very best education through our learning community which consists of engaging teachers and students from all parts of the world through our experienced and supportive staff, especially after our partnership with the Beaconhouse School System, the world’s largest school network in ten different countries with a total of 290,000 students. Our school also encourages parents to take part in all types of projects that will enhance and strengthen the students’ learning progress. We provide suitable learning environment and cater curriculums that will stimulate the students’ interests, release and materialized their abilities and potentials.

    I will put in all efforts to ensure that each student is given full attention, receive proper education and equip with adequate or up to date knowledge and skills that will enable them to survive and live happily in our global and more competitive world..

Welcome & Mission
    Beaconhouse Yamsaard International School (BYIS) is highly regarded for its academic standards, a happy and purposeful atmosphere, a strong sense of community and its emphasis on the value of each person as an individual. Both boys and girls are welcome to join the exciting and supportive environment of Early Years and Primary at BYIS.

    In our Early Years setting, we agree with the Department for Education’s ethos “Every Child Matters”. At BYIS, we believe that children deserve the best possible start in life, and we aim to provide as such in our supportive and enabling environment. Of course, we also teach a rich and varied curriculum that includes:

     o  Personal development
     o  Social and emotional development
     o  Literacy
     o  Communication and language
     o  Mathematics
     o  Physical development
     o  Expressive Arts and design
     o  Understanding the world and its cultures.

    Our curriculum encourages every pupil to learn how to think, but not what to think. We aim to empower our pupils to:

     o  Be intelligent and curious
     o  Be creative and innovative
     o  Develop integrity and honesty
     o  Develop moral courage
     o  Accept responsibility for their actions
     o  Understand and respect other people

    We aim to ensure that all children participate fully in all key areas of learning through a structured approach to the curriculum, with an emphasis on play and enjoyment. Thus, our students develop into independent, creative thinkers and workers.

    At BYIS, we give our students many opportunities to contribute to decision-making and to develop their leadership skills. Thus, they learn how to play an active part in the school community and in the communities to which they will belong in the future.

Our practical activities reinforce and consolidate students’ theoretical understanding of each topic, which better prepares them for examinations and further studies.

Our new Learning Resources Centre provides students with a wide range of printed and electronic media to enhance and advance their learning experience. Our dedicated librarian is on hand to monitor and facilitate independent reading, learning, and research, and to assess the development of literacy skills.

Computer Room

Technological development has advanced very rapidly. In today’s world, communication equipment and computers have become an essential part in the student daily lives, to assist and ease them in carrying out their day to day work. The school foresees the importance and the need to have a quality computer room and therefore, have installed a very modern and up to date computer system and programs with sufficient number of stations to serve all the students in the set up.

Class room

The school gives extra care and attention to the classroom learning environment in order to keep it neat, clean and save for all students. Therefore, all classrooms are equipped with the necessary tools and teaching aids to facilitate students in their learning and conducting activities in class. The school realizes the importance of having an attractive classroom set up and has put in place, a nice tidy room with specific knowledge materials assigned to different classroom corners. The aim is t


At our campuses, we provide playgrounds that get students moving and having fun at the same time. Our playgrounds are to encourage students to run from one piece to another, giving them a healthy dose of cardiovascular, heart-healthy exercise. Part of the appeal of playgrounds is that students get to be around one another. They learn how to take turns and exercise self-control waiting for a swing to open up and etc. Social interaction in playgrounds is very important for student development.


Students at Beaconhouse Yamsaard Schools have well-taught stimulating classes in the gymnasium, they learned valuable physical skills, set a pattern for lifelong fitness and grew socially from their experiences. Our gym classes provide students with physical exercise on a consistent basis. It is particularly important for the physical well being of students who do not engage in physical activities outside of school.

Swimming Pools

At Beaconhouse Yamsaard International Schools, swimming is one of the most important sports for our students. This is why we are offering swimming pools in all campuses. Swimming can help students build confidence, master a fun activity for both play and sport, and learn safety in the water, which can be lifesaving. Moreover, swimming can give students an intellectual and developmental boost as well.

  • Technology Integration
    At BYIS, we believe in using technology integration in the classroom. In the 21st century, the function of classrooms and learning need to be adapted and altered to mesh with what students bring to classrooms such as English, Science, and Math. This is to enhance and engage students in their learning processes.

All activities are taught and led by qualified staffs and local instructors.

Entry Requirements and Placement

    BYIS accepts students of all nationalities. We evaluate each applicant to determine acceptance and appropriate placement. Previous school records are reviewed and considered in determining placement, so that students are placed at their appropriate instructional level.

    Students are invited to visit and spend some time exploring the school environment and getting to know our experienced staff. On the strength of this visit and the earlier visit with the Principal, places are then offered and acceptance invited.

    Although the majority of our students are fluent in English, some students are accepted into the school with very little or no English. Our English support teaching ensures that non-English speakers are readily integrated into the classroom learning environment.

    It is highly recommended that parents visit the school before the child’s first day. The Principal and office staff are available to talk to all interested families and/or to give a guided school tour. Please make an appointment a few days before your intended visit.

Admissions Policy

BYIS uses the combination of the following three documents to ensure every student and parent that becomes part of our community upholds the school’s values of: Growth, Knowledge, and Virtue.

1) Placement Test
    ►  The child must complete a placement test.
    ►  If the child is entering into the correct year, the pass score is 50%.
    ►  If the child is entering into the year ahead, the pass score is 90%.

2) Readiness Report
    ►  As soon as a child enters the school, his/her behaviour will be observed by the office staff and any Teachers that encounter the child.
    ►  A Readiness Report will be compiled by the members of staff who conduct the tour and the placement test.
    ►  If the child scores lower than 30% on the readiness report, then the parents will be required to attend a meeting with the Principal regarding the expectations of BYIS.
    ►  A child that scores low on the readiness report may still be admitted but on a trial basis with an accompanying behaviour report card that will be filled out daily by the child’s teachers.
    ►  If after two weeks there is no improvement in the child’s behaviour, a second meeting will be called with the parents.
    ►  If after a further two weeks (four weeks in total) there has still been no improvement in the child’s behaviour, the child will be asked to leave the school.

3) Previous School Survey
    ►  If the child is transferring from another school, the office staff will take an email address for the child’s previous teacher. A survey will be sent directly to the teacher to be filled out and returned.
    ►  If the score from this survey is below 20%, the parents will be required to attend a meeting with the Principal regarding the expectations at BYIS.
