BISG has limited resources for students with special needs or physical disabilities and by policy, can only assist students with mild disabilities. To learn whether your child can be accommodated – and if space is available – please submit an early application along with a recent psycho-education evaluation and other documents related to the student’s special needs and services.


If your child has any special medical, support or testing needs, it is important that you share this information on the application.

Statement Regarding Accessibility for Students with Physical Disabilities

The British International School Gambia (BISG) acknowledges its current limitations in infrastructure, specifically the absence of an elevator and accessibility facilities, as the school is set over four floors. Regrettably, due to these physical constraints, the school is unable to admit students with mobility and other physical disabilities.


This decision is made, recognising that the school's existing facilities may present challenges for individuals with physical disabilities. It is important to note that the school is committed to providing an inclusive and supportive educational environment for all students. However, the current limitations in our physical infrastructure prevent us from adequately accommodating the needs of students with certain physical disabilities.


The school is actively exploring options to improve accessibility in the future, with considerations for potential renovations or alternative solutions to address these limitations. In the meantime, we encourage prospective parents and students to contact the school administration for further information or to discuss specific concerns related to accessibility.


We appreciate your understanding of these constraints and assure you that we are dedicated to fostering an inclusive educational community to the best of our abilities within our current infrastructure.
