who we are and what we do

At BSN, we’re extremely proud of our academic success. While your child is with us, they’ll achieve impressive results and enjoy one-of-a-kind opportunities that nurture their talents and spark new passions.

Learning takes place in technology-filled classrooms, labs and libraries, as well as bright outdoor spaces and creative performing arts studios. Located just a stone’s throw from Cuiping Mountain, our beautiful campus adds an extra dimension to your child’s learning, helping them to become more socially and environmentally conscious. It also means they look forward to coming into school every day.


our history

Founded in 2007, The British School of Nanjing is now home to more than 450 students from over 30 countries.

From our youngest learners in nursery and reception to our A-level students, we inspire every child to achieve more than they ever thought possible. We’ve always done this in small class sizes with a low student-teacher ratio, ensuring each child gets the support they need to thrive.

Now in our 15th year, our students continue to raise the bar through their outstanding academic achievements. 2021 was the seventh consecutive year our IGCSE and A-level students scored significantly higher than the UK average. One of our students achieved the highest score in China in his A-level biology exam, too, which is an extraordinary accomplishment.
