A Secondary School as Unique as You Are

We have plenty to shout about at BSB: our unique, transferable British curriculum with three pre-university routes, A Level, International Baccalaureate and BTEC; a bilingual French/English programme in Years 7-9; over 100 enrichment activities every week; a stunning campus and unparalleled facilities; the best IB results in Belgium, and enviable industry and alumni links to connect classroom studies to the real world of work. We were recently ranked as one of the best schools in the world, and every year our list of students’ university destinations and courses makes for an inspiring read.

But what really makes BSB such an extraordinary place? If I had to narrow it down, I’d say it’s our relationships. Every day, I witness countless interactions between our staff and students; teachers expressing their faith in a young person’s potential, building their knowledge, skills and confidence. Whole futures are built on moments like this.

Our teachers are passionate about their subjects, and are committed to their own professional learning. Learning is a lifelong undertaking: that’s the message we instill in our students, and it’s a mantra we live by ourselves. Discover more about our diverse teaching and learning team on our Staff page.

Families might feel nervous about the impact of a big transition like moving schools – along with moving jobs and countries, in many cases – but they’re quickly reassured by our friendly and caring community. And not only do students settle quickly, our commitment to British and International systems means that they can also transfer easily to their next school if the need for another move arises. Time and again we hear from visitors how happy, confident and welcoming our young people are.

If your aspirations for your child include to be happy, successful, excited by learning and to engage purposefully and ethically with the world, BSB could be the school for you. Get in touch with our admissions team to book a visit and feel the difference for yourself, and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any specific questions.

I look forward to meeting you.

Vice-Principal & Head of Secondary School

Sébastien, Curriculum Leader of Technology for Learning

“Technology plays a prominent role at BSB. The rationale is to equip all students with skills that are important in today’s digital society.  Our Computing Curriculum is designed to build confidence in STEAM learning from Kindergarten through to Secondary. Our hands-on tools make learning playful, engaging and relevant, while developing students’ ability for critical thinking, communication and 21st century skills, like coding and robotics.”

John, Vice-Principal and Head of Secondary School

“I’ve worked in several schools before BSB but never found a set of students be so tolerant, accepting and caring towards each other. It’s a school where students can be confident to be themselves and can develop to be the person they aspire to be.”

Mark, Head of Higher Education & Film Coordinator

“10 years ago, BSB became one of the first international schools to start teaching Film. I’m really proud of the films the students have made since then, the international scope of course and the resources available at BSB to study this ‘seventh art’.”
