ADMISSIONS

CURRICULUM

The education provided by BISB is based on the National Curriculum for England and reflects the widely varying experiences of our pupil population and the international nature of the school at the heart of Europe. The curriculum is taught in English by native speakers, with specialist support for pupils whose mother tongue is not English. French language lessons are given by native speakers.

ENROLMENT PROCEDURE

The school year in Belgium starts at the beginning of September and is divided into 3 terms - Autumn, Spring and Summer. Schools are closed during July and August.

We accept enrolments throughout the school year.

FEES

Our fee structure is flexible and depends on the age of the child and, for Nursery, the chosen schedule. There is a monthly payment scheme and special arrangements for children arriving or leaving during the academic year.

Full information available on our Admissions page

SPORT

Sport and physical exercise are an essential part of the curriculum and feature in many of the extra-curricular activities on offer. These change regularly and include cricket, orienteering, football, tennis, yoga and archery.

ARTS, DRAMA & MUSIC

Considerable emphasis is placed on the Arts, both across the curriculum and in extra-curricular activities. Pupils enter the LAMDA drama exams every year and every child participates in musical productions at Christmas and in the summer.

CLUBS

Our after-school clubs (from 15.35 – 16.30) are very popular with the children and offer an excellent opportunity to learn new skills and to enjoy favourite activities with friends across the school.
