Our values and beliefs
Berlin British School is an independent private school experienced at combining the best of British with an international education to students aged 3-18 from a variety of cultural backgrounds. The school develops inquiring and intellectually active minds, as well as cultivating the value of knowledge in its traditional sense. Our highly qualified British and international staff are experienced, caring, and deeply committed to the development of the whole child. The language of instruction is English, and German tuition is provided for all students. Small class sizes, close individual monitoring, and the maintenance of rigorous academic standards in a caring but disciplined setting are the distinguishing features of a BBS education which also recognises, through a rich programme of extracurricular activities, that a young person’s confidence and skills may be developed outside the classroom as well as within it.
The school is based on three sites with facilities appropriate to each age group:
Early Years – a programme of structured learning for ages 3-6 (Nursery, Reception and Year 1)
Primary – specialist teaching facilities for ages 6-11 (Years 2 - 6)
Secondary - for ages 12-18 (Years 7 - 13) leading to the International Baccalaureate Diploma. The IBDP is often described as the gold standard of international education and is recognised by universities worldwide, including Germany, UK and USA.
