Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

The Berlin British School is an IB World School that runs the PYP, IGCSE and Diploma programmes. We specialise in providing a first-class education to children in the local community as well as to children of embassy staff and mobile parents who are in Berlin for only a few years. After completing the IB Diploma programme, students from the school progress to universities across the globe. Students can pursue an education entirely delivered through the medium of English, or they can choose to develop their language skills to a high standard by studying selected subjects in German.

The main purpose of the Berlin British School is to ensure that the young people the school serves are well prepared for the challenges they face in a rapidly changing world. While preparing young people to thrive through academic success, a central part of their education at the Berlin British School is to nurture the development of character throughan engaging curriculum and supportive pastoral programme. The school's community of students has members from diverse international backgrounds, which gives students an opportunity to explore issues from multiple perspectives.

Teaching approach of the school

The curriculum aims to combine the best practice of innovative international educational programmes within a supportive, disciplined school environment. We have high academic expectations of all students. We aim to create well-informed global citizens. By locating subjects in context, and providing a programme of structured inquiry, BBS gives learning relevance, and provide students with many opportunities for critical thinking. Lessons are interactive, with differentiated activities tailored to meet the needs of individual students. Regular reporting and close contact with parentsensure that channels of communication on children’s progress are kept open.
