Headmaster's Welcome

Welcome from the Headmaster of the British School of Bucharest.

The British School of Bucharest is unique. We are committed to excellence, with over 20 years of experience driving leading education in Bucharest. Our school's primary focus is to foster and provide an excellent academic environment for each individual student by educating the whole person and catering to each personality. Tailoring support to each student is achieved through small classes and a wide range of opportunities for all.

Our fantastic BSB team ensures our children feel safe, happy and valued while being supported academically and experiencing a wealth of opportunities inside and outside the classroom. We recognise the pupils' unique talents, and our experienced staff support each step they take on their educational journey. When you look through the pages on our website, you will see so many examples.

The key to our success is high expectations for all students, and our five core values set a context for excellence for all. Our latest ISI inspection highlighted the way we care for and develop children. The report identifies the educational quality at the British School of Bucharest to be 'excellent' in terms of both the quality of pupils' learning and achievements and the quality of pupils' personal development. We are very proud to be the only British school in Romania rated as 'excellent' in all areas in successive inspections, in 2018 and 2022, by the UK International School Inspectorate (ISI). The ‘excellent’ rating is the highest possible rating that can be achieved after being inspected by ISI. Our academic results are outstanding and reflect the high expectations we set.

Our school's incredible breadth of opportunities ensures that each pupil finds success and builds much-needed confidence to achieve whatever they want to reach for. We work closely with our parents in partnership, and relationships are central to everything we do. As part of the BSB community, all students learn to navigate the world around them in a caring and safe environment. As such, your children will have a clear framework to succeed by providing them with knowledge, guidance and tools to assume control of their academic journey and respect as part of our wider community. 

Our exceptional campus continues to evolve and adapt to meet the needs of both pupils and teaching staff, providing the right environment for a dynamic and progressive education. It reflects the British School of Bucharest's heritage as one of the top British International Schools in Europe while providing state-of-the-art facilities. 

I encourage you to visit our school campus, where we all look forward to sharing with you first-hand the warm, stimulating and inspiring environment that the entire BSB community takes pride in.
