The British International School of Ljubljana offers a traditional British education in the beautiful Slovenian capital, with a personalised approach to learning which enables each child to achieve beyond their perceived potential. Our ethos is to instil a passion for learning amongst our young learners within this uniquely international setting.

Following the English National Curriculum, our school currently welcomes students aged 2 to 18 from over 40 different countries. As such, our school has one of the most varied international student bodies in Slovenia, which, as well as providing a stimulating and cosmopolitan environment, also means that English is truly the common language, spoken throughout the school by all students and staff alike.

All subjects, except foreign languages, are taught in English by a team of dedicated and enthusiastic professionals, most of whom are native English speakers and bring with them a wealth of experience both from the UK and internationally.

Our older students in Secondary School will sit IGCSE and A-Level examinations, which are considered gold standard qualifications as far as university admittance is concerned.

BISL is an accredited member of the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) – the premier global association for international British schools overseas; is a member of the Council of International Schools (CIS) – a membership community that works together to shape international education through professional services to schools; and is also a Cambridge International School – following Cambridge programmes and qualifications that set the global standard for international education.

I hope that, as you visit our website, you will get a flavour of the British International School of Ljubljana: who we are, what we’re doing, and where we’re going. Like many things within our school, I hope this site will be a blend of consistency and tradition, yet ever changing and evolving, as events, curriculum and the school environment combine to better meet the needs of our young people.
