Template:Infobox School Berlin British School (BBS) is a private international English-medium school for children aged 3 to 18, located in Charlottenburg, an affluent locality of Berlin, Germany.

History

BBS occupies the premises of Charlottenburg First School, a SCE school for children of British Forces Germany personnel which closed after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the withdrawal of British troops from Berlin. Through the efforts of some Diplomatic Service staff at the British Embassy in Berlin, the school was opened in September 1994 to its first pupils. It is the first British international (non-SCE) school established in Germany.

Curriculum

BBS follows the British curriculum and prepares pupils for the IGCSE. Pupils in Years 12 and 13 ("Sixth Form") take the IB Diploma programme. There are special provisions for pupils whose first language is not English and also SEN and Gifted & Talented. German is taught at all levels and a mandatory subject regardless of level of proficiency or citizenship.

Houses

All pupils from Early Years, Primary and Secondary are allocated to one of the four houses. House members obtain points through inter-house competitions (Primary & Secondary) as well as good behaviour (Early Year & Primary).
