Ask a Question

The British School was founded in Nepal in 1966 AD by a group of British and Commonwealth parents who wanted their children to receive a British-style education. It is a fee-paying, non-profit, independent international school that offers the English National Curriculum and employs full-time staff from the United Kingdom (including the Principal). Students from Foundation 1 to A Levels are accommodated at the school. From Foundation 1 to Year 6, the International Primary Curriculum is taught alongside the National Curriculum for Mathematics and English. For IGCSE and A-Level exams, Cambridge International Examinations and Edexcel syllabi are used (CIE is a part of the UCLES Examinations Board).

Message from the Principal

Our students enjoy coming to school each day because they know they will be cared for and supported in their learning.  Each student is recognised and ‘known’ by their expert teachers, allowing them to develop the confidence required to embrace the challenges that will be skillfully and carefully placed before them.   

We are proud of our students because they value and always look to promote and practise kindness.  We are proud of our students because they strive for excellence and recognise that this can be exhibited in many different forms.  

Wellbeing is at the centre of everything we do and this is cultivated and grown through helping each child develop positive and mutually respectful relationships, both with their peers and their teachers.

Our academic results speak for themselves and are the product of an emphasis on continual self improvement.  Students are encouraged to explore, follow their curiosity and be creative in their thinking.  Our teachers are experts in being responsive to each child’s needs, providing very individual feedback to enable them to embrace the next step in their learning.   

Students are provided with extensive opportunities to flourish and find their ‘element’ through a broad, rich academic and co curricular programme, with a focus on leadership and community. 

Please enjoy finding out more about our school, through the different sections of the website.  Don’t take our word for it though.  Come and see and feel what makes TBS an exceptional school by meeting the exceptional people on our beautiful campus.
