    • We simply love stories and at BSB we write new ones every day with our passion, spirit, spreading of happiness and enjoyment of educational activities. But maybe one of the best stories we can write is at Christmas time when we celebrate and enjoy our fantastic Christmas Fair in our own unique way.

      A Right Royal Day! The Royal Marines Band is coming to Romania and will perform at BSB

    • We are preparing for a great and inspiring event, that truly honours us and we’re so enthusiastic to share it with you all! On Wednesday November 28th, The British School of Bucharest will be filled with the music of The Royal Marines Band!

      We are very pleased to welcome this unique band and our students, staff and BSB’s guests to listen and be inspired by its professionalism when creating military music. 24 members of The Royal Marines Band will be with us on Wednesday in the morning. A brass quintet led by Sgt Colin Hudson will be performing 3 sessions for our audience and, weather permitting, we have a planned performance from the entire band. We’re hoping for a sunny day!

      What is really exciting for the BSB’s pupils is that while the performances of the brass quintet take place, the other musicians not involved in these will work with our own instrumental students, giving them advice and sharing tips and tricks about instruments, technique and sound production. Some of these students have only started recently to play an instrument, others are more advanced. All are full of energy and ready to ask their questions and find answers directly from the experts. Sally Clark, Head of Secondary Music, Naomi Aves, Head of Primary Music and Jim Pywell, Coordinator of Instrumental Music have everything in hand and have organised everything in detail for this event to be a memorable one.

      We are certain that after this fantastic opportunity our students will find the trumpet, the trombone, the euphonium, the flute, the clarinet, the saxophone and the drums less intimidating and more fun to learn!

      “Such a great pleasure to have The Royal Marines Band at BSB! We are more than honoured to welcome this amazing band, for us to be part of unique music performances and all the BSB community, together with our guests, to live some royal moments. I really appreciate the professionalism, the love for music and the passion of these musicians and I have to thank them all for sharing some techniques with our students and coaching them too. For sure it will be a very interesting morning, in all ways. Special thanks to The British Embassy Bucharest for keeping this British relation tight”, says Philip Walters, Headmaster BSB.

      The Royal Marines Band is coming to Romania at the invitation of the Ministry of National Defence to participate in the military parade on 1st December, Romania’s National Day. The British Embassy Bucharest is using this occasion to mark the centenary year through some special events, such as this one at the BSB.

      We cannot wait to hear and be part of this royal story!

      ‘Lest We Forget’ to thank The First World War generation on Remembrance Day

    • BSB is proud of a strong tradition in helping others and our pupils are always happy to ‘be there’ for those in need. Commemorative events bring the BSB community closely together - teachers and staff, children and parents. ‘Lest we forget’ was the main theme at BSB for the whole week leading up to Remembrance Day, when we were involved for the 10th year in the emotional and inspirational campaign organised by The Royal British Legion, a fundraising annual event held in November. Over the last 5 years, we have donated over 5000 euros to this worthy cause and we’re really happy to show in this way our respect for the First World War heroes.

      “It’s an honour to be part, year by year, in such an emotional initiative organised by The Royal British Legion, and an even more special occasion this year, for the 100 year celebration of the end of the First World War. For one week, the school was filled with poppies and it was a great chance to discuss with children about Remembrance Day, about sacrifice, respect and legacy. BSB is involved whenever possible in charity and tries to support the causes it really believes in. Donations to The Royal British Legion are some with a special symbolism. We have a long 10 year collaboration by now and we’re happy to see that, year by year, we are donating more to their cause, involving all the BSB community, from staff to students and their families”, said Philip Walters, Headmaster of BSB.

      For all those currently serving in the Armed Forces, veterans, their families and dependants, the BSB community engaged in the Poppy Appeal, wearing poppies in school for a full week before Remembrance Day and also selling them, together with poppy pins and arm bands, for a minimum donation of 5 lei.

      On Remembrance Sunday, alongside dignitaries, diplomats and high-ranking military personnel from many different countries, several BSB teachers and parents together with our Head Boy and Head Girl were at the Commonwealth War Cemetery at Tancabesti and laid a poppy wreath from the British School of Bucharest. The invitation came from The British Embassy in Romania which appreciates our involvement in the Royal British Legion’s charity events. We were honoured last year to receive a letter of gratitude for our important contribution.

      The poppy is a unique symbol in Great Britain and the Commonwealth, marking the end of the First World War and always associated with the 11th November, also called Remembrance Day. On this day, at 11am, the truce between the Powers of Entente and Germany came into force, ending the First World War and creating the conditions for the Great Union to be established in Romania on 1 December 1918. In this context, it is usual to observe two minutes of silence on the Sunday before the 11th November at 11am to honour the soldiers who sacrificed their lives during the First World War.

      The British School of Bucharest was, for the second time this year, the host of a COBIS Conference

    • How can teachers and other school staff support children in developing a happy and healthy mindset? What are the blocks and barriers to well-being in schools? What about the children’s fears and emotions? But, most importantly, how should we talk to children?

      After a COBIS Conference on the subject of Marketing and Admissions organised at BSB last March, we were proud to host a further COBIS Conference on 9th and 10th November on the topic of ‘Wellbeing in the Digital Age’. Fifty delegates from COBIS schools from countries as far away as Brazil and Ghana came together to share their strategies in facing the complex and difficult issues associated with the ‘digital age’.

      Philip Walters, Headmaster of BSB commented “We are honoured to host this Pastoral Conference with such a challenging theme, ‘Wellbeing in the Digital Age’! It brings together amazing teachers, inspired speakers and challenging issues, in order to find out the key through wellbeing, so it creates an interesting plot to debate. In this era of technological development and rapid change in communication, schools need to understand developments and trends whilst also equipping children with the skills necessary to embrace innovation and adapt in the future. The relentless ‘24/7’ nature of social media, the prevalence of technology and the accessibility of extreme material is leading to many children and adolescents struggling to find their place in the world. They are faced with images, ideas and content that their parents and teachers have likely not directly experienced. As educators, we have a responsibility to develop our understanding of these issues in order to provide an effective pastoral system and support networks”.

      Speakers included Organised Crime Investigators, Forensic and Criminal Psychologists, Authors, Trainers and Consultants in educational issues and Online Safety, Social Media Awareness and Child Protection specialists. All contributed to make this Pastoral Conference enlightening and valuable. Many educational aspects were considered and debated with great energy and enthusiasm, with the outcome of practical solutions. Above all, care for children and a huge desire to support them in this complex area was very evident.

      Many thanks to all of the participants and speakers for joining us in recognising the vital importance of robust pastoral care systems. We look forward to meeting you all again soon!

    • Volunteering work

      During the summer, Ioana taught English in Koh Samui, Thailand. She spent 2 weeks teaching children from Year 1 to 5 in a school situated in a rural area of the island. She applied through a local company called Bamboo Projects and was accepted to participate in the programme. It was an amazing opportunity, as she experienced the authentic lifestyle of the island, living amongst the locals. Teaching the children was a very fulfilling experience for Ioana, our Deputy Head Girl, but it also came with enlightenment and surprises concerning the contrasts between our educational systems, especially when considering what she is used to. Overall it was the perfect combination of her passion for travelling and her desire to give back to the community. Excellent work, Ioana, we are very proud of you!

    • Our students strike again! Team Malaxa represented Romania at the "F1 in schools" competition in Singapore!

      Malaxa’s car track time ranked 12th out of 50 teams worldwide in the final "F1 in schools" competition, in Singapore!! We are so proud of our 5 young engineers and entrepreneurs, Emilia (Team & Marketing Manager), Lara (Graphic Design & Marketing Manager), Andrei (Financial Executive), Pavel (Manufacturing Engineer) and David (Manufacturing Engineer)! The only team representing Romania in this competition prepared tirelessly, for almost two years, to create a unique concept car and to make it as realistic as possible. Not only does it look magnificent, this beast performs like a real F1 car!

      What was the challenge about? Malaxa had to design and build a miniaturized car model that can reach 100 km/h, with an aerodynamic design, utilising compressed air propulsion.

      What did our fantastic students do? They created a miniature F1 model, a unique concept car made of polyurethane foam miniaturised to a scale of 1/20th and projected on a 1/20 scale. It has aluminum wheels of less than 0.5mm thick and the whole car weighs less than 40g (unpainted). It sports titanium axles and complex aerodynamics, resembling a real F1 car.

      Competing against 50 teams worldwide was not at all easy. The projects were judged by over 45 specialists from the industry, Formula 1 and education, taking into consideration the car’s speed and performance, alongside the team’s marketing strategy, graphics, financial plan and sponsorship strategy. After all these areas of review were taken into account, Team Malaxa was ranked 34th out of 50 teams worldwide.

      You could find more about their experience here.

    • Team Malaxa is ready to raise the bar at the "F1 in schools" Competition!

      Team Malaxa is on its way to the F1 in Schools Competition, in Singapore.

      A 5-member team from our school is ready to rule the world, in one of the most challenging innovation contests, "F1 in schools"! We are immensely proud to announce that Team Malaxa, comprised exclusively of students from the British School of Bucharest, is the only team representing Romania in the finals.

      Emilia, Lara, Andrei, Pavel and David have dedicated a great part of their time to build an innovative car, with cutting-edge features and characteristics. They cannot wait to present their car to the world on the 9th of September, in Singapore.

      Let us all wish them good luck, and may they return home with great success!

    • British School of Bucharest Summer Fair

      The annual British School of Bucharest Summer Fair is held each June on our beautiful, green campus. This is the most eagerly anticipated summer event, attended by students, parents, staff, friends and members of the public. This year’s Summer Fair was a tremendous celebration. We welcomed the sun and summer in our own way. Thank you to everyone for joining us and making this event so special!

      Early Years Open Morning, a great BSB event and a unique opportunity for parents and children to visit us!

    • Last Wednesday was truly successful, with parents and their children, aged 2 to 5, taking part in our Early Years Open Morning event! They spent 3 fun- filled hours touring our great BSB campus and impressive facilities. They all enjoyed the amazing activities, both indoors and outdoors.

      We were happy to see the interest shown by parents, who wanted to find out how our BSB teaching staff take care of children taking their first independent steps and they also wanted to know more information about The Early Years Foundation Stage: Pre-Nursery, Nursery and Reception.
      They were impressed by our unique team of teachers and the relationship between them and the children. They were equally impressed by the special care and the safe, secure and happy environment we have here, at BSB. The Food Technology Studio, our Tree House and the science garden were also mentioned by the parents, as really interesting places for children to learn, relax and have fun. The children were really excited about all the activities in which they could take part.

      At the end of the tour, both children and parents had the opportunity to taste the food pupils eat on a daily basis at British School of Bucharest. It was highlighted at this stage, that for EYFS, snacks and lunch are included in the school fees. They were delighted to see that we are taking care of every single aspect, providing healthy, tasty and fresh meals, with nothing pre-cooked or fried. It’s all about keeping a balanced diet.

      Those who couldn’t take part in Early Years Open Morning and want to visit us, can do so anytime, even while on vacation. You are all more than welcome to join our BSB family! What do you have to do? Complete the registration form and book a visit on our website, . We can’t wait to meet you and present to you our campus and all its facilities!

      Challenge accepted, mission accomplished!
      BSB’s team demonstrated its spirit of adventure, at Legion Run!

    • We are proud to announce that a BSB team, consisting of staff and teachers, participated on Saturday 16th June, in Legion Run, at Divertiland WaterPark. It is an amazing sporting adventure, designed for those who love challenges! Our 26-member team did a great job and demonstrated that nothing is impossible, when you help each other and work like a real team, to conquer fears and overcome obstacles.

      ”Sometimes, we all need a little motivation” is the message of our BSB staff and they were full of motivation! Running, crawling, climbing, getting wet or muddy - nothing was too much or too hard for our colleagues! Stelian Stancu(football coach) and Tudor Atanasiu(teacher at Innovation Hub) were part of the team, as well as many of our IT, finance and office staff. Prince Nicholas de Roumanie, also joined the BSB team on this tremendous adventure.

      They all demonstrated that loyalty, determination and confidence are the keys in successfully taking part in an adventure like this!

      With all the benefits sport has, for mind and body, giving strength, power, energy and a positive spirit, our BSB staff and teachers are active members in a series of sporting events and activities. That is why they accepted, with great enthusiasm, to tackle the Legion Run challenge. They couldn’t miss out on this unique team building experience, designed to challenge and to be enjoyed by everyone!
      Their effort and passion for sports is a true example for the BSB pupils, who learn, day by day, of the many benefits of regular exercise, physical activity and sports. That’s why, our British curriculum offers them a huge range of activities, both curricular and extra-curricular, to develop and grow healthy, to have energy and strength and to learn the importance of teamwork.

      Thank you to our BSB team for this great example! We are so proud of every single colleague of ours and we hope they continue being active, living healthy lives and representing the BSB spirit in as many competitions as possible!

      Sports Day, a day filled with joy and energy, at British School of Bucharest!

    • Congratulations to all BSB future athletes, that made this year's Sports Day spectacular and a special mention for Mures, the winner of this year's House competition. A big thank you to everyone involved in BSB Sports Day this year. It was a great competition, filled with house spirit and enthusiasm.

      First place for Stefan at the "Friends of the Piano" Competition - June 2nd, 2017

      BSB's students never fail to prove their talent and skill: on Monday the 22nd of May, three of our school's pianistss went up against tough odds at the 'Friends of the Piano' competition. And without further ado, we raise our proverbial glasses and congratulate Vlad from Y7, Jordan from Y6, and Stefan from Y5 for their excellent performances. Whilst Vlad and Jordan played their pieces with technical and emotional fluency, it was Stefan who took home first place for his age group.

      We congratulate Stefan and applaud his hard-work, determination, and passion. This week, we managed to catch up with Stefan and ask him a bit about himself and his love of piano.

      - Hi Stefan, congratulations for first place! Could you tell us a bit more about the competition? What did you play?

      Stefan: 'Thanks! The competition was a big event at the Romanian Athenaeum and we were separated by age group. I knew it would be challenging so I picked difficult pieces to stand out: a Mozart Fantasia and an Etude by Heller.'

      - Wow! And how long have you been playing piano?

      Stefan: 'I started some basic piano when I was little (Stefan, now aged 10, is very grown up) but I've only started really learning to play since 2015. So I've been playing for two years.'

      - That's very impressive. Finally, will you tell us a bit about yourself?

      Stefan: 'Aside from piano, I like quite a lot of things: football, karate, video games, YouTube, and creating funny stories to tell my friends. I have a competitive nature but I am also really friendly.'

      - Thank you, Stefan!

      Gold for BSB - Congratulations, Manuela!

      BSB congratulates Manuela, Y7, for her fantastic performance at the COBIS Secondary Games and for achieving the gold medal in the girls' long jump.

      The COBIS Games, held in Sheffield (UK) this year, were no small occasion. For the girls' long jump alone, Manuela faced 49 girls, largely Year 8 and older, from 27 COBIS Schools and 17 countries around the world. Against these odds, Manuela triumphed. Not only did she win gold, but Manuela broke her own personal best by more than 2 metres: Manuela achieved an incredible score of 4.83 metres and secured first place by almost half a metre!

      At first, Manuela got off to a rocky start: she was over the take-off mark in the first jump, and then took some time adjusting her run to compensate in the second jump. Ultimately, Manuela decidedly took the girls' long jump with her third and fourth dramatic leap.

      Being one of the first jumpers at the event, Manuela was immediately noted for her skill and dedication by her competitors, who spent the day "chasing her" and trying to outdo her perfect score. But as we know, Manuela's outstanding performance was unbeatable. It was only Manuela who had no idea she made a clean sweep in the competition and found out only the next day, when she heard about her victory during a results announcement.

      BSB'S Got Talent! - May 25th, 2017

      Back to Natural - 19th May, 2017

      A crucial question we all face in life and one that Dr Douglas Graham asked the students at BSB today is, 'what is a healthy lifestyle?' - Indeed, how can we best extend our youth, our energy and ultimately, our lives?

      BSB's students and parents had the privilege to listen and take part in talks Dr Graham gave to different year groups. As a former American athlete and long-time raw vegan, Dr Graham has a global reputation and has worked with famous athletes, celebrities, and people looking to improve their lifestyles. Today's talks delved into the real components of a wholesome diet and the central role that doing exercise occupies in a healthy life. Both students and parents found the talks very inspiring and were surprised at how simple natural solutions to diet and exercise can be.

      For those who did not get the chance to come today, there is opportunity to sign up for the talks tomorrow. Saturday's events will run from 10am to 6pm and will even include a sports workshop hosted by Dr Graham.

      Celebrating Success at BSB

      Half of the exams were passed with the best possible result (A* and A grade).

      A student at BSB will enter the second year course at University in Scotland

      Following the release of the latest A level results, the British School of Bucharest is celebrating outstanding success. With a 100% pass rate amongst the cohort of Year 13 students, all of the students will be continuing their studies in universities in the United Kingdom and around the world. The results are even more remarkable given that we are a non-selective school. We are proud that all of our students achieve to their best, helped by our personalised approach which gives each child careful guidance and individual support as they choose their path to success.

      Amongst some excellent results, several students achieved at the very highest level possible. Head boy Mohammad Faisal will be heading to University College London to study Economics following his 3A* and 1A performance. Meanwhile Andrei Atanasiu, who has studied at BSB for 14 years, leaves school armed with 3A* grades to study at one of the world's Top 10 universities. Abdullah El-Rifai achieved results of 3A* grades which will enable him to pursue further studies in Engineering at Edinburgh University in Scotland, entering the second year of the course.

      Head of School, Philip Walters commented, "Our students and their teachers can be very proud of these impressive results. Their grades reflect the benefits of our balanced education where co-curricular and leadership opportunites are pursued alongside academic study. I am sure that our continued success is also a result of our careful attention to personalised pastoral care. We do our utmost to ensure that each child in our care achieves to their highest potential and enters higher education fully prepared as well-rounded and confident young people."

      The A level is a benchmark examination in the United Kingdom that is recognised as a pre-university course throughout the world. We are a non-selective school, but take pride in our aim of sending all our graduating students to the highest ranking university that is best-fit for them. Most students from the school pursue further studies at universities in the United Kingdom but many study throughout Europe and further afield. The expert team of advisors at the school guide the students to choose the right subjects and courses that are best suited to their career aspirations and skill sets.

      For further information on the students and their successes please contact the Head of School, Philip Walters on

      BSB is delighted to announce that we have received the Eco Schools Silver Award for a commitment by the whole school to make our premises more environmentally friendly.

      The Silver Award has been achieved by the children completing 7 steps towards reducing the school's energy use, culminating in our Eco Week activities and Eco Code Competition. Through the children's hard work and dedication to the cause, we have been able to significantly reduce the amount of energy we use in school.

      The British School of Bucharest Sports Day and Ilie Nastase Sports

      Beneath blue skies, BSB's annual festival of sport brought the whole school together in a spirit of friendly competition. The school's four academic 'houses' (Mures, Arges, Olt and Danube) competed in a range of track & field events for the seniors, with other, less strenuous activities for the younger children. The ultimate goal? To win for their respective house the coveted Ilie Nastase Sports Trophy and to receive the impressive award from the Romanian sporting legend in person.

      A record number of parents were in attendance to cheer on their children (and no doubt soak up the sun) along with a great many members of school staff, all intent on making it a successful and safe day for all involved.

      Congratulations to the winning Olt House team for a narrow but well-deserved victory for the second year in succession. So the challenge is on for the other three houses to try to break this winning streak in 2014 and be the team to share the winners' podium with Ilie Nastase.

      The British School of Bucharest joins the Romanian and international world of martial arts in mourning, following the death on Sunday morning of Sensei Dan Stuparu, President of the Romanian Traditional Karate Federation and Vice President of the International Traditional Karate Federation.

      Sensei Dan tutored BSB students for over 10 years and was an inspirational figure to all of our young people. His wife, Marta, teaches Karate at BSB and to her and all of the family we extend our sincerest condolences.

      BSB triumphs at the AISB Talent Contest. Students from Bucharest schools competed in a talent show recently at the American School.

      The standards were very high, with the judges and audience suitably impressed. First prize for the Solo Performance went to BSB's Tudor, Y13, for his piano rendition of Pirates of the Caribbean, by Jarrod Radnich. Congratulations to Tudor and to everyone involved and thank you to AISB and the event supporters.

      This weekend, 28 BSB students represented the school at the Atlantis Cup Swimming Gala.

      The children brought home an incredible 29 medals between them (10 gold, 10 silver and 9 bronze), so congratulations and well done to everyone involved.

      BSB teachers joined twelve students on a school trip to compete in a regional round of the World Scholars Cup recently.

      We entered two junior teams and two senior teams to the competition, which involved a day of writing, exams, debating and quizzes on subjects based around the theme A World in Motion. Our teams excelled themselves and time after time they were called up to receive both team and individual awards. Three of our four teams qualified for the global round, held this year in Dubai, where they will encounter 1000 of the best qualifiers from all over the world. They will also get the chance to explore this emirate and meet students from many other schools.

      As part of their second AG&T project this year, KS2 pupils Finlay, Alex, Ilayda, Charlotte, Lena, Karin and Irini entered a competition requiring them to pen a story using exactly 80 words.

      After several weeks of experimentation and editing they came up with their final entries which were sent to the 'Young Writers' organisation. This is a great website for all aspiring writers who enjoy entering their work in competitions: We're thrilled to announce that all seven of their entries were considered to be worthy of publishing and will be included in an anthology, due to be published in June this year. We are delighted to announce that we are the first international school to achieve the Silver Level Primary Geography Quality Mark (PGQM). This award recognises quality and progress in geography leadership, curriculum development, learning and teaching.

      IStip Inspection

      In BSB's first year offering induction for each Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT), the school has received an outstanding report from representatives of the Independent Schools Teacher Induction Panel (IStip), who visited the school in March 2013. The subsequent report stated that all involved were to be commended on their good practice and tight processes, especially in the first year of participation. The day of the visit involved an extended meeting with the Induction Coordinator (IC), short meetings with each of our NQTs and an afternoon of training for the IC, the subject mentors and prospective subject mentors. The training was interesting and worthwhile and, as in-service training is always much appreciated, proved to be the most valuable part of the day. It was encouraging too to receive such a ringing endorsement of our methods and standards.
