Our inclusive international school community is a vibrant, happy place to be, where both you and your child will thrive. You can find out about our entry requirements here.

British International School Budapest (BISB) entry requirements

Our school is open to children aged 3-18. We accept applications all year round and new students can start at any time.

We’re proud to be a fully inclusive school. We have an outstanding team of learning support specialists who provide for a range of needs. Their capacity is limited, however, so please let us know if your child has any additional educational requirements when you get in touch with us.


Application form and supporting documents

After filling in our enquiry form and taking a tour – either in person or virtually – you’ll need to complete your child’s online application form.


You’ll also need to send us the following documents:


Assessment and interview

Early years to Year 2

We’ll invite your child into class to meet our teachers and spend some time with their peers. This observational visit also enables our staff to assess your child’s learning preferences and abilities. All children need to be out of nappies/diapers.


Years 3-9

We ask prospective students to complete an online cognitive ability test. If English is not your child’s first language, we will invite them to take an English assessment.


Year 10

Your child will be asked to complete an online cognitive ability test. If English is not their first language, we will invite them to sit an English assessment. Your child will also be asked about their IGCSE subject choices.


Year 12

All prospective students need to complete an online cognitive ability test, a maths assessment, and an English test. Once we have the results of these assessments, your child may then be asked to an interview with our Head of Secondary, where we’ll discuss subject choices for the IB Diploma. This may lead to further assessments in the subjects chosen.

Once the assessments and interview are complete – and if everyone is happy – we’ll formally offer your child a place.
