Teams, Clubs and After School
At The British International School of New York we are delighted to offer a varied after-school club program and robust competitive sports program. Designed to offer exposure to new skills and areas of interest, and to promote new friendships, our clubs vary from term to term and designated by age to be most appropriate and enjoyable.
Beyond the classroom our team sports provide another opportunity for our students to engage with their team mates and peers at schools across the city. Whether it is our BIS-NY Bulldogs playing autumnal soccer in Central Park, winters spent on the basketball court, school pride and spirit are proudly on show through our soccer, basketball, swimming, track & field and tennis teams; competing against local independent schools in the American International Private School League. Competitive school sports are available to all students in Year Six to Nine.
Most of our clubs run from 3:30-4:30pm and run in two semesters (from Sept-Jan and Feb- June). Prices vary depending on the activity but choices include Arabic, Ballet, Chess, Coding, Fencing, Global Chefs, Ice Skating, Karate, Mandarin, Robotics, Table Tennis and Yoga.
Beyond the classroom students have the opportunity to demonstrate and develop the many values of the school in our robust extra-curricular program that is available for no additional charge. This program includes Debate Club, the School Play and Set Design.
In addition to our varied program of after-school clubs, our 'After-school Care' is open to children all of ages. This is available from 3.30pm - 5.30pm for a daily charge, and during this time children are encouraged to read, make a start on their homework, or play and socialize with their friends under the supervision of our staff.
