Fees

BSB offers the best value school fees amongst any international school in Belgium.

We have the lowest fees overall, including application fees, compared to schools of a similar size. There are no extras (‘campus’ or ‘development’ fees), and almost all of our extensive range of extra-curricular activities are free of charge. This is unusual in the international school world.

BSB is a private, fee-paying school. School fees are revised annually by the Board of Governors in the spring of each year, and are due in one single payment each May for the following academic year. Fees may be payable in instalments by arrangement with the Finance Department.
