The BISR is at the heart of the British Community in Riyadh, providing education to some 1600 boys and girls, the majority of which are British. However, before you join our community, it is very important to consider the impact on children before making the move to Saudi as in some instances, a transfer of the children is unwise and detrimental to their long term education.
