We’re delighted you’re considering BSB Sanlitun for your child.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

From the moment you first get in touch to when your child starts their first day at school, we're here to help you every step of the way.

A WARM WELCOME AWAITS 

As an academically inclusive school, we have vast experience in welcoming incoming students from many different education systems.   
If your child is joining us from another school, we may request their school reports and academic transcripts, as well as personal recommendations from their previous school. 
If your child has minor learning difficulties, we may be able to cater to their needs and we may require additional assessment documentation.

LANGUAGES
 
We teach in English. However, if English isn’t your family’s first language, we have an excellent English as an Additional Language (EAL) programme, which caters for children who arrive at our school with little or no English. Through our programme’s effectiveness and in our English-speaking environment, children pick up the language incredibly quickly!

Mandarin Chinese is the most widely spoken language in the world. We provide our children, from beginners to native speakers, with the opportunity to learn Mandarin. New children are evaluated on arrival at the school before being placed into one of our ability classes. Existing pupils are streamed according to their previous performance and academic records. 

At BSB Sanlitun, we offer a German programme for native German language speakers in Years 1-6. This is an optional programme where students who qualify receive three hours of German small group tuition each week (two mandatory hours and one hour ASA).  
 
OFFER OF A PLACE
 
We will review all of your materials and get back to you shortly.
