What makes us unique?
Driving academic excellence
We offer a challenging programme for a successful future at university and beyond.
The British International School of Ljubljana is an Outstanding school.
We know you want the best education for your child, that’s why we follow the English National Curriculum throughout the school. We strive to provide a curriculum that inspires our students to achieve the best possible IGCSE and A Level results.
We are very proud of our recent examination success; our students consistently achieve above the world average and gain entry into some of the world’s top universities.
A truly international experience
At BISL we celebrate cultural diversity, with our student body consisting of over 40 nationalities.
We never forget the value of your child’s cultural diversity. With students from over 40 different countries, BISL has one of the most varied international student bodies in Slovenia.
As well as providing a stimulating and cosmopolitan environment, this also means English is truly the common language, spoken throughout the school by all students and staff alike.
With sister schools in Budapest, Doha, Mallorca, Moscow, Quito and Shanghai, our students are given many exciting opportunities for integration, joint projects and visits, making us a truly global school.
Extensive English provision
We offer extensive English language provision, integrated into the curriculum.
With such a vibrant international student body, it is no surprise that for many, English is not a first language.
We offer extensive English language provision, integrated into the curriculum, for those students who are not English speakers, allowing them to access the curriculum fully. We assess all students to determine the level of support they require in this area and communicate progress with parents closely.
Opportunities for all
We offer a comprehensive programme of opportunities outside the classroom.
At BISL, we give all our students the chance to develop a wide range of skills both in and out of the classroom. We know it's not all about A*s; it’s about ensuring students make the best possible progress, whatever their level may be. BISL is non-selective and focuses on progression as well as attainment, in line with the current approach in the UK.
We also offer a comprehensive extra-curricular programme for our students in arts, sports, languages and more, including MEPI (the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award).
It is this belief that allows us to ensure that your child is happy, academically challenged and inspired to learn more throughout their time here at BISL.
Delivering the best of British education
The English National Curriculum is at our core, enhanced to meet the needs of our international students.
As part of the Orbital Education group of schools, BISL benefits from their global expertise of delivering high quality British education via teachers, curriculum and management.
The English National Curriculum builds knowledge and skills from the very start of a child’s academic journey in Early Years, through to achieving the best possible IGCSE and A Level results in Secondary School.
IGCSE and A Level qualifications are recognised as gold standard qualifications, highly respected by universities and employers across the world; setting our students on a successful path to higher education, careers and beyond.
We’re also proud of our team of fully-qualified and dedicated teachers, all of whom are specially selected for their experience and excellence.
