Study at BSM


At BSM we welcome applications from students of all nationalities and backgrounds, from age 3 to 18 years old.

From our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) right through to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma in Years 12 and 13, we offer an adapted form of the British curriculum focused on preparing students for the 21st Century and ensuring that they can reintegrate into their home countries when they return.

We maintain small class sizes of 22 students with three classes in each year level allowing us to really get to know each and every child. Exceptions are Nursery which has one class of 25 students, Reception and Year 1 have three classes with 20 students per class. In Year 10-11 we aim not to exceed 20 students and for IB not more than 16 per class.
