Michael Lewis, Executive Chairman of Riverston International, part of the Riverston Group™ based in London and Mrs. Angela Fubler, Founder and Director of Chatmore British International School (CBIS), Bermuda, agreed to establish a joint venture to nurture and expand CBIS as well as extending Riverston’s international footprint.
Chatmore British International School was established! As a co-educational international school, we moved to a new location 'Rockmore Estate' in Smith's Parish and welcomed a new Head of School, Clare Sweeney, who brings a wealth of experience and is poised to lead Chatmore through its next chapter of growth. With this new move, we brought Chatterbox and Chattertots in with us to give us that true family feel. We’re very proud to be the first and only school on the island to simultaneously implement IPC, IMYC and The International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC)!
Chatmore Preparatory School began. We were an all boys school and here is where we put ‘teaching the way children learn’ into practice. The Director and Board recognised the huge value in learners receiving a truly International education with a robust international curriculum; and as such Chatmore Prep was the first school in Bermuda to begin the implementation of the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC).
The Chattertots Discovery Zone was established in Warwick as we were growing rapidly! Chattertots, the sister school to Chatterbox, was specifically for our ‘tots’! It was a developmentally-appropriate environment, allowing for children to grow at their own pace.
Starting out as a language-based centre for children with language delays, The Chatterbox Preschool, led a successful early years and preschool programme based in Southampton. This set a solid foundation for where we find ourselves 14 years later; not only does the “Chat” name remain but our early years programmes are still language-focused and we still have a speech and language therapist on our team!
