Successful Students from BSB

The British School of Beijing has a proven track record of producing excellent academic results year after year. In standardised testing of students at all levels, we sit well above the UK and global average. Our graduates are accepted into top universities worldwide. But a successful student cannot be judged on exam results alone.

We make it our mission to ensure that all those who participate in our school life leave us as better, more able, more responsible and confident individuals, who uphold our core values of honesty, integrity, excellent manners and respect for others.

We look to celebrate success, and our teachers are always on the look out to catch our student doing something special, whether it be academically or socially. We like informal praise, but we also have formal systems for rewarding our students with our House system and Merit scheme.

Each year The British School of Beijing, Shunyi achieves excellent academic results.
