A central part of a student’s education at the Berlin British School is to nurture the development of character through an engaging curriculum and supportive pastoral care programme.
Founded in 1994, the Berlin British School is an independent private school that has officially been granted the status of an authorised Ersatzschule by the Berlin Senat.
At BBS we are experienced in combining the best of British, international and German education to students aged 2-18 from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds.
