Beyond the Classroom

The British International School Budapest prides itself on the breadth of education it provides and recognises that learning does not only take place in the classroom. Our Co-Curricular Learning (CCL) programme is an integral part of the ethos of our school, providing students with an opportunity to enhance their personal development, deepen their interests and broaden their horizons.

We are committed to ensuring that the Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs) we offer are genuinely developmental, purposeful and enriching, encouraging students to extend their learning in areas not necessarily provided for in the formal curriculum. At the British International School Budapest, we are keen to ensure that we know all our students as individuals. Through this we can help them to find their talents and passions. We hope that your child will find several activities that appeal to them whatever their interests may be.

We have categorised our CCAs into six groups:

  • Sport
  • Physical Recreation
  • Performing Arts
  • STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics)
  • Language and Culture
  • Creativity Activity Service

Each category has its own page in this brochure and contains a summary of the characteristics of the CCAs and their generic aims, as well as the key information on each CCA within that category. We strongly advise that all students commit to at least two CCAs per week and that they try to select CCAs from more than one category.

Most of the activities in our CCL programme are led by members of staff and are free of charge. Activities run by external providers incur a cost, as do activities that use an off-site venue and this is clearly marked in the brochure. Further details regarding payments and student collection times for these off-site CCAs will be provided as necessary.

Our CCL programme for Term 1 commences on Monday 13th January 2020. Sign up for CCAs is completed online through CHQ and will be live from 06:00 on Tuesday 10th December until 23:59 on Thursday 12th December.  Full details regarding the process can be found in of the brochures below. Please note that for school registration purposes students must officially register for CCAs through CHQ. If students are not signed up for a CCA then they will not be able to participate.

We look forward to welcoming your child onto the CCL programme for 2019-2020.
