We are driven by one unifying philosophy: we are ambitious for our schools, students, teachers, staff and communities, and we inspire every child who attends a Nord Anglia Education school to achieve more than they ever imagined possible.
The British International School Budapest
Our students are motivated by our school’s mission statement, enthusiastic about learning and ambitious for themselves and for the future of our shared planet. We enjoy excellent collaborations with local and international service organisations, providing outstanding opportunities for service learning and outdoor education. Our campus is in a premium location overlooking a golf course and beside a museum in the leafy 3rd District of Budapest, a short distance from the Danube and the centre of the city. Our buildings are modern and very well-equipped. Primary students benefit from one-to-one iPads and secondary students bring their own laptops. Specialist rooms are equipped with first-class facilities, enabling our students to take advantage of our collaboration with MIT and The Juilliard School. Recently completed building projects includes additional specialist facilities for science, computing, music and sports.
