Following the announcement by the Slovenian Government that all schools will close from Monday, 16th March, the British International School of Ljubljana has taken the decision to close the school premises from Monday 16th March 2020 and move to online learning. Our admissions team remains available to discuss enrolment so please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Five key reasons to join the British International School of Ljubljana

1. Driving academic excellence

We know you want the best education for your child, that’s why we follow the English National Curriculum throughout the school. We strive to provide a curriculum that inspires our students to achieve the best possible IGCSE and A Level results.

We are very proud of our recent examination success; our students consistently achieve above the world average and gain entry into some of the world’s top universities.

2. A truly international experience

We never forget the value of your child’s cultural diversity. With students from over 40 different countries, BISL has one of the most varied international student bodies in Slovenia.

As well as providing a stimulating and cosmopolitan environment, this also means English is truly the common language, spoken throughout the school by all students and staff alike.

3. Extensive English provision

With such a vibrant international student body, it is no surprise that for many, English is not a first language.

We offer extensive English language provision, integrated into the curriculum, for those students who are non-native speakers, allowing them to access the curriculum fully. We assess all students to determine the level of support they require in this area and communicate progress with parents closely.

4. Opportunities for all

At BISL, we give all our students the chance to develop a wide range of skills both in and out of the classroom. We know it's not all about A*s; it’s about ensuring students make the best possible progress, whatever their level may be.

We also offer a comprehensive extra-curricular programme for our students in arts, sports, languages and more, including MEPI (the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award).

5. Delivering the best of British education

As part of the Orbital Education group of schools, BISL benefits from their global expertise of delivering high quality British education via teachers, curriculum and management.

With sister schools in Budapest, Doha, Mallorca, Moscow, Quito and Shanghai, our students are given many exciting opportunities for integration, joint projects and visits, making us a truly global school.
