It has a beautiful site of ten hectares, surrounded by woodlands and lakes near the Royal Museum of Central Africa in Tervuren (20-minutes’ drive from central Brussels). The school is a co-educational non-selective day school for students aged 1-18, with 1,350 currently on roll. 30% of the students are British and there are more than 70 other nationalities represented.

Students follow a British-based curriculum adapted to the European context and international student cohort up to age 16 – (I)GCSE.

Additionally, there is a truly bilingual French/English programme for ages 4-14 years.

Our Academic results are amongst the highest of any international school in Europe. Our students achieved a pass rate of 100% in 2020 for the IB diploma, A levels and BTEC. Additionally, BSB achieved the outstanding 38-point average IB score in 2020 and was independently ranked as the number 1 IB Diploma school in Belgium. (2nd in Europe and within the top 50 in the world).

The school has outstanding facilities for Design and Technology, Food & Nutrition and Music and Drama. In 2016 BSB opened its new Sports Centre with a Swimming Pool, International competition standard Gymnasium, Sports Hall and Dance Studio. BSB is the only international school in Belgium to have its own indoor 25m pool. In 2020 the school renewed its outdoor pitches for football, rugby, athletics, tennis and even has installed climbing /bouldering wall.
