BSB shortlisted for International School Award

BSB been shortlisted in the category 'British International School of the Year' at the Independent School Awards 2013.

The British School of Brussels (BSB) continues to have a very successful year. Still enjoying the excellent academic results published in the summer and with booming numbers, the School has now been shortlisted for an award at the Independent School Awards 2013 in the category British International School of the Year. This is a great honour for the School, which has been listed alongside a more traditional boys' school in New Zealand and an international school in Bangalore.

The awards ceremony will be held on 14 November at the Nottingham Belfry in the UK, at which the shortlisted schools will be represented. The British journalist John McCarthy CBE will give a motivational talk and help to present the awards.

BSB Principal Sue Woodroofe said, “I am so pleased, as you can imagine, particularly as the project that inspired this nomination is our bilingual programme; it is a real testament to the vision and dedication of a great team who have led this work over recent years, with great support from the Governors. Even if we don't win, just to have been shortlisted is such an encouragement for all the great work that is happening at BSB.”
