Our team of educators have reflected upon global research and outstanding practice in the design of the curriculum.
Taking inspiration from leading educators, past and present; Steiner, Montessori, and Berger, to name but a few, we have crafted a model which takes upon an inquiry-based approach to learning. This enables our students to develop key learning habits during the full course of their education at BSB, which are taught explicitly through our curriculum.
Curriculum areas are interwoven to create specific links and to allow students to dive deeper into their learning, with a real sense of purpose and rigour. Underpinning the inquiry, students will explore concepts, enabling them to grasp a broader understanding of the world.
Teachers track student’s progress very carefully through a range of assessment methodologies and this reflective practice enables for a more tailored approach which enables success for all. This may include additional support or intervention delivered by our highly trained student support team.
The curriculum is delivered completely in English, with the exception of Spanish and Catalan lessons. Students requiring additional support when joining the school will also receive an additionally designed EAL programme.
