Description

The British School in Tokyo (BST) is a truly international co-educational school with over 900 students aged between 3 and 18, located right in the centre of one of the most exciting cities in the world. Our most recent Inspection Report, in which we received the highest grade, Excellent, in all 8 categories at every age level, has resulted in us becoming well known internationally for our high academic standards, for the care we take with each individual student of any ability and for the happy, multicultural environment that we provide for learning and play. Situated at the very heart of this dynamic, stimulating city, the BST community is warm and friendly and offers the highest standards of pastoral care. Having developed its reputation for high quality holistic education over more than a quarter of a century, todayÍs school has more than 900 students aged 3-18, representing over 60 different nationalities. This is an inclusive school, but academic standards are high. The English National Curriculum provides the basis for smooth progression and easy transition between the Primary and Secondary sectors, and examination results have been outstanding in recent years. Our experienced teachers, largely recruited from the UK, are consummate professionals who are always willing to go the extra mile to ensure that all students are offered the opportunity to fulfil their potential both in and beyond the classroom. The result is that, whether they are returning to continue their education in their home country, moving on to another international school or seeking places at top universities around the world, BST students are invariably well-equipped to take the next step in their education. We are justifiably proud of our academic performance but, with our definitive BRITISH attributes underpinning all that we do, education here means so much more than the pursuit of top grades. Sport and the arts, community service and adventurous activity are all central to the balanced programme we offer at BST, and we are acutely aware of our obligation to prepare young people to make their way in the world as confident, caring and responsible citizens.
