Message from Middle Years Programme Coordinator and Head of IGCSE

Mariam Arif

Middle Years Programme Coordinator and Head of IGCSE

It is with immense pleasure that I welcome you to Beaconhouse Newlands Islamabad. I sincerely believe that every child has a talent, waiting to be discovered. Fortunately, BNI’s size and structure allows each child to be treated as a special individual.

We are blessed with a competent and professional team of teachers who not only excel at their work but, their ownership towards the school and students is matchless.

The middle and senior years are a crucial time in a child’s life in terms of growth and development. We want to make these years as progressive and memorable as possible.

Our website will provide an insight into what BNI has to offer. However, for a real feel of our culture and environment, a visit to the school is a must. We offer the Middle Years Programme as well as the IGCSE. Both programmes are full of academic rigor, incorporate experiential learning and teach application of knowledge in the real world.

I look forward to welcoming you to the BNI family!

God bless.
