Vision & Mission

The British School Manila (BSM) provides an outstanding holistic international education for British children and English speaking children of other nationalities. We aim to develop students as global citizens who are equipped with skills, understanding and values to be able and willing to contribute positively to their world. We achieve this through collaboration between our families, the school and our students.

Our students will learn to;

  • Be happy, healthy and well-balanced
  • Have the tools to self-regulate and be resilient in adversity
  • Realise their potential through application and effort
  • Thrive with challenge and accept that risk taking and making mistakes are positive parts of learning 
  • Reflect on, self assess and drive their own learning
  • Be confident in expressing and in being themselves
  • Be respectful, honest and kind, have integrity and take responsibility for their own actions
  • Make their world more sustainable, peaceful and fair


BSM will;

  • Be a learning community where all members have a desire to be lifelong learners and strive for excellence
  • Foster a friendly family atmosphere that nurtures partnerships for learning and a sense of community
  • Meet the emotional, physical, creative and cognitive needs of all children within a multicultural environment
  • Implement an adapted form of a British curriculum, along with the IB Diploma programme
  • Use technology to enhance learning
  • Encourage engagement in Service Learning
  • Provide authentic skill based learning opportunities
  • Provide a wide range of holistic opportunities that allow students to find and develop their passions
