Description

“BSB was founded in 1969 and officially opened in 1970. It has a beautiful site of ten hectares, surrounded by woodlands and lakes near the Royal Museum of Central Africa in Tervuren, and is 20 minutes’ drive from central Brussels. The school is a coeducational non-selective day school for students aged 1-18, with 1,350 currently on roll. 31% of the students are British and there are more than 70 other nationalities represented.

We are an international learning community and students follow a British-based curriculum adapted to the European context and international student cohort up to age 16 years. Post-16 students have the choice of three pre-university routes: A Levels, the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma (French/Dutch bilingual options) and English BTEC vocational courses in Sport, Business, Hospitality and Applied Science. We are the only school in Belgium to offer this choice. Additionally, we offer a truly bilingual French/English programme for ages 4-14 years.

Academic results are superb – IB diploma 99% average score over the last 3 years – in 2018 100% pass rate for A levels and BTEC

The school has outstanding facilities for sports, music and drama and is the only international school in Belgium to have its own swimming pool. Extra-curricular options are extensive.

BSB also has a very active parent support network and through “Families of BSB” parents are supported in many ways to help them settle into life in Belgium.

Call us for a tour and find out why BSB is the first choice of school for 98% of families.”
