Welcome to BIS


At BIS, we subscribe to the ancient credo - Mens sana in corpore sano - “a sound mind in a sound body”. Sport is an important part of both the regular BIS curriculum and of After School Activities (ASA).

A professional and progressive-minded Physical Education (PE) team and exceptional facilities guarantee a wide range of sports activities across all ages and ability levels. Facilities include sports halls, track and field areas, a fitness centre, and dance studios.

BIS students compete for points, goals and best times as the "BIS Lions", facing other schools in the Munich and Haimhausen region in friendly competitions. Our competitive sports teams also participate in the German International School Sports Tournaments (GISST) (U14 & Varsity) and the European Sports Conference (ESC) (Varsity) and travel to other schools within Germany and Europe. These teams include Skiing, Soccer, Volleyball, Cross Country, Badminton, Rugby, Swimming, Basketball, Volleyball, Tennis and Track & Field.

Students prepare for competitions following structured and balanced training programmes, training vigorously two to three times per week.  While various athletes are recognized for special accomplishments at season’s end, every BIS student who competes experiences the rewards of teamwork and develops “a sound mind in a sound body”.
