The British International School Bratislava

is a friendly, welcoming school that aims for high educational achievement in a supportive learning environment.

Why Us?

Our dedicated teachers and staff will help your child to achieve their best academically, but also to understand and respect different cultures, races, creeds and values. We offer an excellent standard of teaching from Early Years to IB Diploma for older students. Our curriculum offers breadth and depth; it captures the imagination, provides problem solving opportunities, risk-taking and invites independent research. Our teachers set high standards, encouraging students to question, debate and explain. We are shaping the leaders of tomorrow.




Ensures continuity and progression, rigorous assessment and a strong focus on skills and critical thinking.



Our International Baccalaureate Diploma programme is recognised by all international universities as well as Slovak universities. Every year over 90% of our IBDP graduates successfully pass the IB Diploma Programme with average points over 33, which is higher than the world average. For more information, please read our School Profile.



The British International School Bratislava gathers children from over 45 different countries, which makes us the most international school in Bratislava. Apart from that, we belong to the Nord Anglia Education family of 42 schools spread around the world. We unite our students with students from all these schools through our Global Classroom initiative giving them the chance to meet new people, talk to global experts, collaborate and learn about new cultures.



Slovak students represent an important pillar of our school community. The school offers Slovak language teaching from the age of 6 to 18, which allows Slovak students to apply also to local universities.   



We guarantee class sizes which enable your child the best opportunity to learn and develop. Classes are small enough for children to receive individual attention. At the same time the year group cohorts are large enough to provide a range of friendships, backgrounds, interests and abilities.



Whilst the school has a ‘family feel’ to it, our students look outwards to where they can make a contribution to the local and international community. This is done through different charitable and service based activities: Eco School, Nordstar, International Award, CAS, etc.   



The school welcomes and encourages parent involvement, with an open door policy for parents. Our Parents Association is very active and is happy to welcome new members throughout the year.  If you would like to speak to somebody from your own country, our country representatives will be happy to help you.   



We take care to support our new families in their settling in process and also to those mobile families experiencing the pressures of transition when they have to move on. We understand that transition might be especially emotional for children and we do our best to help new children in the school to feel happy and comfortable as soon as possible thorough our Pastoral Care programme.
