Bahlool British International Schools is an inclusive school

The LEMS vision for Inclusive Education is that we achieve excellence together by all students receiving the support they need to meaningfully belong to their school and wider community, feel valued for their contributions, engage purposefully in learning and experience academic, cultural, social and emotional success in a common learning environment.

We accept new admissions for every year group

There are no academic requirements for acceptance into Foundation Stages 1&2 

(3 to 4 years of age). Prospective students at these levels are interviewed; they must be toilet-trained and able to respond to simple instructions.

All other prospective students (Year 1 to Year 6) may take diagnostic tests in the core subjects. These tests help to determine if the students have attained the minimum expected standard for each subject.

The admissions process has been designed to ensure students are appropriately placed at LBBIS, while maintaining the integrity and consistency of the school programme and policies. Admission to Bahlool British International Schools can be made during the year, depending on availability, through the Admissions officer. Certain documents are required to be provided to the school before they can enter the educational system in Baghdad.


A student’s application will pass through different stages and is facilitated by effective communication between parents and the school’s admission team including through the school's online portal.

Please refer to the below steps on how to apply to LBBIS:
