Budapest British International School is an independent, co-educational British International school, accredited by COBIS, with a prestigious UK based Board of Trustees.  It currently caters for 165 international students, but is at a very exciting stage of its development, opening a brand new state of the art senior school in August 2020, eventually for 380 students, from Reception through to Year 13.  

The School operates on a site it wholly owns, in the prestigious District 12 residential area in the Buda side of Budapest.  It was founded only four years ago, and is now over subscribed with waiting lists. It has quickly gained a reputation as an outstanding new British international school, catering for over 32 nationalities and offering the UK National Curriculum in Primary, and the MYP and eventually DP curriculum from the IBO in the Senior School.  The school is currently in the candidate phase for MYP and has Years 1 – 8, is two form entry and limits class sizes in the Primary to 16, and in the senior school to 18.  A brand new building, with two new Science labs will be opening in August 2020.

We are at the stage of our development where we need an experienced Head of Science, or ambitious and outstanding MYP/DP Science teacher to plan the growth of Science for the school, and with the shared vision of developing a new model in international schools to cater for the “boutique” and elite market, selecting on entry and providing individualised and outstanding quality teaching and learning, to ensure academic excellence, within a holistic, caring and modern school.
