Academic excellence
At BISB, our students follow globally recognised international and British curricula. We’re the only school in Bratislava that teaches the English National Curriculum. We also deliver the internationally renowned Cambridge IGCSE and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. 

All our children – from early years through to secondary – follow tailored academic programmes that nurture their strengths, interests, and ambitions. Supported by our world-class teachers, your child will be encouraged to develop a lifelong love of learning. 

We’re proud of this approach and the results show that it works. At IGCSE level, more than 50% of our students get A* to A grades, which is double the UK average. Our IBDP score of 37.4 in 2021 puts our students among the highest achievers in Europe.  

Outstanding academic outcomes open up a world of opportunities, and many of our students continue their education at the best universities in the UK, Asia, Europe and the US – including Cambridge, MIT, and the University of Hong Kong.

World's best teachers
Our students tell us they love coming to school. And that’s down to our world-class teachers, who create a safe, inclusive, and vibrant learning environment.  

Being part of the Nord Anglia family of schools means we can recruit the best: talented educators who have extensive experience in British and international schools, and who are experts in their field. Each teacher is carefully chosen and has UK qualified status or equivalent.

Exceptional learning experiences

At BISB, our students are encouraged to learn in new ways, be creative, and follow their passions. We work with the world’s best organisations to provide outstanding opportunities and experiences.  

Our STEAM programme with MIT opens students’ eyes to the possibilities of science, technology, engineering, arts and maths, encouraging teamwork, resilience and communication. Our collaboration with The Juilliard School, the world-renowned performing arts conservatory, offers the highest quality artistic education, and sets our students up to be confident and creative performers.

Nord Anglia’s Global Campus learning platform connects  our students with children in schools around the globe, broadening their educational experience. Learning together, students tackle global projects and challenges, and enjoy shared activities. Having fun with friends really matters, too, and we offer more than 70 extra-curricular clubs, as well as life-changing residential trips. 

Of course, your child’s well-being is at the heart of every experience we offer. Our highly qualified pastoral care team provide the personalised care, support and guidance students need to thrive.

Our social purpose
Through one-of-a-kind learning experiences and collaborations, our students become confident, conscientious global citizens, who make a genuine difference to the world we live in.
Our social purpose
Our students are a force for good, creating change in our community, nationally, and across the world. While they’re at BISB, your child will learn about the challenges facing our society – and take action to address them. 

Your child can make their voice heard through our collaboration with UNICEF. They’ll explore global issues – including climate change and water scarcity – through debates and international trips, where they’ll share their ideas on the world stage.  

We encourage our students to stand up for what they believe in and promote social responsibility. Through Nord Anglia’s Global Campus learning platform, students can expand their knowledge and take action alongside changemakers from schools across the world. 

We care passionately about our environment and have been an accredited Eco-School since 2006. Our students lead the way through our Student Council, raising awareness and making sure our school is environmentally friendly. At our Forest School, early years children get the best introduction to the world around them.
