Quality of the Learning Environment
High-Quality Learning within a British-Curriculum School
The British School of Bucharest is a British-Curriculum school located to the north of Bucharest. Our campus extends over a splendid area of over 2 hectares where trees and flowers surround the school buildings and the sports fields. The British School of Bucharest offers a wealth of opportunities for learning in superbly resourced classrooms, well equipped laboratories, dedicated libraries for Primary and Secondary students and outstanding outdoor spaces. This exceptional environment is home to state of the art educational, sporting and artistic facilities. We continue to invest in the latest technology, where appropriate, to bring real-life learning experiences and opportunities for personal growth. Key concepts are presented in ways that enable visual, auditory, and kinaesthetic learners to grasp them.
Through the National Curriculum for England, our students are exposed to many innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) opportunities. These provide invaluable practical experiences that nourish the skills of creativity, flexibility and collaboration and help our students prepare for the future workplace – for jobs that may not currently exist.
The school’s loyal and experienced native English-speaking teachers, working within a British-Curriculum school, plan practical, high-quality and child-centred lessons focused on active learning where a culture of mutual respect and support is valued along with high achievement.
Varied and engaging co-curricular programme
The breadth and uptake of co-curricular activities (CCAs) throughout the school is truly impressive. CCAs give our students access to many opportunities to help them develop their skills and abilities.
Children enjoy choosing from an extensive range of over 100 high-quality CCAs that give them the possibility to try new sports, attend academic extension classes such as language learning, and pursue many interests or service opportunities which may, in time, develop into lifelong passions.
The majority of CCAs take place inside the campus within our impressive facilities, but for those that require children to go outside the campus, the children are always accompanied by a Teaching Assistant and safe transport is provided.
