The British Schools of Beijing (BSB), Shunyi is a large International School offering Primary through Secondary education in one campus. BSB focuses on creating great learning for the leaders of tomorrow by providing a fully personalised learning experience tailored to the needs of every child, from outstanding support in the Early Years through to specialised university counselling for the world’s top universities. BSB offers an enhanced English National Curriculum, and IGCSE examinations, up to the age of 16 followed by the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma programme.

BSB has been in Beijing since 2003 and is owned by the Nord Anglia Education global network of 40+ schools.
BSB is epitomized by the highest academic standards, taking our students on to the world’s very best universities, but also ensuring that every student is truly valued as an individual and that the sense of family, community and opportunity pervades all we do. Our philosophy is to be ambitious for every single child and young person to achieve far more than they ever dreamed possible, in whatever field that may be, and to grow into a truly global citizen who contributes to making the world a better place.
