From the headmaster

"The British School of Bucharest is a very special international school, with multiple certificates and accreditation from local and international institutions, that has aided numerous students to continue their education in some of the most prestigious universities worldwide. The school tailors the educational programme to each individual student’s requirement, to empower them to study further based on their skills, abilities and dreams.

"The International Schools Inspectorate rated us as 'excellent' in all educational aspects, BSB being the only school in Romania to have received this distinction. The main body of their report, from February 2018, confirms my confidence in the education that we provide for the children.

"We believe that a child has to grow completely in all areas – academic, social and personal – and that’s what we encourage at BSB. Uniquely among Bucharest’s schools, all of our teachers are first-language English speakers, with great experience in the British curricula. Many of them are graduates of respected universities among which are Oxford and Cambridge, BSB being the only school in Romania with the privilege to accommodate graduates from such prestigious schools in the team. I am more than proud to work alongside our dedicated, hardworking, highly talented staff that contributes to making BSB unique!

"A wealth of opportunity is available to young people today and we strive to inspire our students to become responsible citizens and leaders in communities and professions around the world. For this, we recognise and then develop each child’s talents within and beyond the classroom curriculum and also through our huge range of extra-curricular activities, building their confidence and further increasing their enjoyment of learning. We are proud to offer the excellence of British education to our pupils and to always see them happy in BSB’s family.”
