A LEARNING EXPERIENCE DESIGNED FOR THE FUTURE

Created by our world-leading education experts, our internationally recognised curriculum reimagines education through six key educational pillars.

Exceptional learning experiences
At BSB Sanlitun, learning stretches far beyond the classroom, empowering our students to develop social and personal skills that go hand in hand with their academic achievements.

Exceptional learning experiences
We cultivate creativity and resilience through transformational experiences—giving our students the skills they need to succeed. This includes activities through our collaborations with world-leading organisations like Apple, The Juilliard School, UNICEF, and MIT.

Some of your child’s experiences will get them out of the classroom and into the community. We embed service learning across all age groups, encouraging our students to enact meaningful change through local outreach programmes by fundraising or volunteering for causes they care about. For example, we organise a Winter Accessories Appeal in support of Roundabout, a charity that delivers warm clothes to families in need. 

The experiences we give our students have led to some outstanding parent feedback. Over the past five years, BSB Sanlitun's parents have consistently ranked their children's happiness as one of the main reasons for recommending our school to their friends. In fact, 97% of them say their child is happy at BSB Sanlitun!

Academic excellence
For over 20 years, our students’ outstanding academic results have been opening the doors to the world´s top universities.
Image_Sanlitun_Beijing_2021_171
Academic excellence
As a school with small class sizes, our students always get the right level of challenge and support they need. Our teachers get to know each individual student understanding their unique learning needs, and continual assessment ensures personalised learning adapts and changes to your child’s needs. 

If your child is new to the English language, or hasn’t had much experience in an English-speaking environment, our English as an Additional Language (EAL) department can support them with immersive English lessons.

Technology is built into our curriculum to ensure students receive a high-quality STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) education. They have access to a wide range of technologies, including interactive whiteboards, iPads, VR headsets, Spheros, and 3D printers. This variety fosters innovation, creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and problem solving—and sets in motion a results-orientated mindset.

World's best teachers
Outstanding teachers make outstanding schools—which is why we hire only the best of the best.

World's best teachers
We believe children learn best when they're happy. Outstanding teachers make that happen, so we only recruit the world's best educators and provide training for them from world-leading institutions

95% of our parents believe their child has a good relationship with their teachers. Our teaching colleagues remain on our team for an average of six years, providing a continuity that helps build a strong base of expertise—for both the faculty and our students. Many of our teachers enjoy promotions to senior positions within the school.

Daily emails and communications on our Seesaw app connect our parents directly to the teacher and allow them to be part of the educational experience right alongside their child. This consistency, matched with our teaching team’s expertise, ensures children get the best possible education.

Advanced learning environments
With over 60 nationalities in attendance, your child will join a truly international community at BSB Sanlitun, located right in the heart of the Embassy district of Beijing. This environment encourages a global mindset and helps them make friends with students from all over the world.

Our beautiful campus offers an international school experience unlike anywhere else in China. Indeed, 96% of parents say BSB Sanlitun provides their children with a stimulating learning environment.

Our bespoke Year 1 centre was designed to nurture our students as they transition from Early Years into their Primary education, boosted by our Atrium—the place for play-based activities and age-appropriate challenges.

Our social purpose
We believe children can create the future, and we make sure that our social purpose reflects this. Your child will take part in a variety of socially focused programmes as part of their curriculum. 

Our BSB Earth Guardians initiative sees imaginative students collaborate as they work to make BSB Sanlitun more eco-friendly—championing initiatives like Waste-Free Wednesdays, which encourages children to bring zero-wrapping snacks to school!

Other social-led projects include our Kindness Champion Award—for students who have gone above and beyond at school or in their community to be warm, helpful or charitable. Finally, our Student Council gives children opportunities to shape our school and reinforce its values within the community. This teaches them a sense of agency as they experience greater satisfaction with their learning.
