Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

REAL School Budapest is an international primary school for the curious, creative and courageous. We inspire and empower the next generation to dream and build a beautiful world.

​As a child, joining REAL School means learning through real-life projects, and following your curiosity. As a parent, you will be among like-minded people who give a damn about the world's challenges. And as an educator, you will have the freedom to design and bring to life engaging learning experiences, with a great purpose.

REAL School Budapest is Hungary's only COBIS Patron's Accredited Member school. It has also received a Beacon School status for its commitment to sustainability and exemplary approach to community wellbeing.

Teaching approach of the school

We have designed a learning experience that nurtures the best in us. A programme that exposes us to foundational knowledge about our world, develops our entrepreneurial skills and mindset, and also promotes our wellbeing by helping us become kind, balanced and healthy people.

Our Learning Programme uses the ​National Curriculum for England​ (key stages 1-3). In addition, we are using some of the best learning tools from around the world to build the core elements, such as the Cloud Institute's Education for Sustainability programme, project-based learning processes from the Innovation Unit and Ideo's Design Thinking for Educators.

Entrepreneurial attitude, social skills, understanding the relevance of subjects, actual engagement, and beautiful products are just a few of the benefits that learning through authentic projects lead to. At REAL School learning is organised around projects with clear goals and visible outcomes.

We structure learning around how the students approach certain materials, and what competencies and skills that material might address. We call these structures Learning Forms. They are flexible, adaptable and embody a diversity of learning styles. No more forced curricula. No more one size fits all.

We strongly believe in student agency. To put it simply, student agency gives students voice and choice in how and what they learn. It results in activities that are meaningful and relevant to learners. It is driven by their interests, often self-initiated with appropriate guidance from teachers. As our children grow and mature, they need less and less scaffolding. They need to take their lives into their own hands.
