The School

Established close to fifty years ago, the British School of Milan is an independent, co-educational, not-for-profit organisation enjoying a national and international reputation for excellence.

Teaching staff work in a positive and friendly atmosphere with bright and responsive students. Pupils achieve excellent results by the end of Primary School, and have a love of learning facilitated by the enriching, balanced curriculum.

The recent ISI Inspection (November 2017) affirmed that pupils make 'excellent progress' in the Primary School, while the quality of pupils’ learning and achievement and the quality of pupils’ personal development were both rated excellent overall.

Living in Milan

The school is situated close to the centre of Milan, a cosmopolitan city, the financial and economic capital of Italy, and an exciting place in which to live and work. It boasts one of the grandest squares in Europe, dominated by a spectacular cathedral and arcade. Art treasures include The Last Supper by Leonardo and the Rondanini Pietà by Michelangelo, while La Scala is one of the premier opera houses in the world. The fashion houses of Prada, Armani and Versace have their headquarters here, while two of the finest football teams in Europe play in the San Siro stadium. Milan recently hosted the World Expo, and with excellent public transport and world-class healthcare, there has never been a better time to live in the city.

Milan is also a transport hub, with easy access to the dramatic landscapes of the Italian Lakes and the Alps, the Mediterranean, and the cultural riches of Florence and Venice. Boasting three international airports, Milan is easily reachable from most international cities.
