Frequently asked questions

  • How old is The British School Yangon?
    Our modern, purpose-built school was founded in 2014, and joined the Nord Anglia Education family in 2017.
  • Do you have after-school activities?
    Yes, our students enjoy our after-school activities (ASAs) until 4pm daily. Our teachers lead most ASAs, although some are led by external providers (and may have an additional cost).

    ASAs change every term to give our students variety and range to explore. Students’ favourite activities typically run every term. 
  • What trips and excursions do you offer your students?
    We believe visits are exciting opportunities to learn beyond the classroom at The British School Yangon.  

    In primary school, our students go on fun, eye-opening residential trips with their year groups. These help them build independence, maturity, and confidence.

    While in secondary, students also go on residential trips that connect closely with their curriculum – bringing their learning to life in the world.
  • What’s your sports programme like?
    Our sports programme includes tons of activities! Students can choose from football, basketball, volleyball, swimming, rugby, table tennis, rock climbing, and more – all supported and enhanced by our state-of-the-art facilities.

    We also have weekly physical education lessons, and students love to jump into a great variety of activities at break and lunch. Athletes in our ASA programme may even serve as BSY representatives at competitions in Yangon, regionally, and beyond.
  • What languages do you teach?
    All lessons and activities at our school are taught in English. Our students also learn Spanish or Mandarin to enhance their language skills. They can choose to learn Burmese language, too.
