Secondary School

A supportive and welcoming environment where individuals can flourish.

An international Secondary School

BSB's Secondary School is a supportive and welcoming environment where individuals are valued and can flourish. It is a happy community where everyone can play their full part both inside and outside the classroom.

We follow the structure of the English curriculum, but add an international dimension that reflects our student population. We have small class sizes and well-qualified teachers who inspire and challenge our students. Learning here is a partnership between teachers and students; learning is done with students, not to them. We have a strong Respect Code which influences all our daily interaction.

Our record in public examinations is impressive, particularly for a non-selective school. We are also unique in Belgium in offering three pre-university routes: A Levels, BTEC and the International Baccalaureate (IB).

But of course any good international school is about more than examination results. We are an active school: there are always sporting, dramatic or musical activities going on which reflects the busy Enrichment life of students and staff.

Our performance

Exam results are an essential indicator of performance, both for our students, and for our school. In recent years BSB students have achieved outstanding public examination results at GCSE and IGCSE level and in all three of our pre-university routes – English A Levels, BTEC and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.

Life outside the classroom

We are truly an active school. There is an incredible range of school trips and events as well sporting, dramatic, musical and host of other activities going on each term. We provide our students with every opportunity to explore new interests and develop their talents.

Opportunities to excel

Our aim is to help our students develop into knowledgeable, principled, well-balanced, confident, inquiring, compassionate and internationally-minded adults who will be able and willing to make a difference in the world after their BSB experience.

Maria, Faculty Leader of Science and Technology

“I love working at BSB because of its truly international nature. Having students from so many culturally diverse backgrounds, speaking a multitude of languages and sharing personal histories has enriched me and made me a much more tolerant and understanding human being.” — Maria, Faculty Leader of Science and Technology

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'.” — Mark, Head of Higher Education & Film Coordinator

Christi-Ann, Faculty Leader Performance & the Arts

“I loved BSB from the moment I came for interview, and still love teaching here 10 years later!
