BBS is a private school with a student body of around 1400 from nursery age to grade 12. Founded in the 1950s, it has an excellent academic reputation and in 2015 was re-awarded its accreditation by AdvancED. Over 90% of its pupils come from non-Christian families who value both its academic performance and Christian ethos that is shared through Bible classes and weekly chapel meetings. Many teachers are former pupils and it is not uncommon for three generations of one family to have all attended BBS. Supported by Microsoft and the British Council, BBS is developing an interdisciplinary approach to learning. This will increase students’ online research capabilities and encourage them to develop core skills like critical thinking and leadership. To accommodate this new style of teaching, staff are being trained and school facilities are being improved. The emphasis is on strengthening a culture where children feel supported and nurtured to reach their full potential.
