Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

The British School of Geneva was created in response to an ever-growing need in Geneva for private, anglophone education and a specific demand for the English National programme. BSG is the only school in the area to offer the cohesive English National Curriculum from Year 1 through to A-Levels.

Teaching approach of the school

BSG offers a single and coherent curriculum leading to A-Levels in contrast to other schools with different curricula in the different sections. Core subjects are taught in English and BSG does not impose bilingual education on its students, though the French language is an important and compulsory part of the syllabus.
