The BEPS International School was established in a leafy corner of Brussels in 1972. The secondary school was founded in 2018. We currently welcome students from 2 ½ to 15 years old. Each year an additional year group will be added and we will finally offer an internationally recognised high school diploma.
BEPS International School is a family orientated school with a strong sense of community. All staff, teaching and non-teaching, are dedicated and provide students with exciting learning opportunities.
BEPS International School is committed to providing high quality education and developing a love of learning in its students. They are encouraged to become confident, independent learners and global citizens.
BEPS friendly and welcoming community offers a safe, caring and stimulating environment, in which students are challenged to reach their full potential not only academically but also emotionally, socially and personally.

THE EARLY YEARS PROGRAMME
In the Early Years (Toddlers, Pre-School, Reception) children develop their love of learning, their curiosity and their confidence. This first school experience will introduce them to their life-long learning journey. Therefore, BEPS want to provide children with the best start possible.
Each child arrives with their own personality and will develop their learning at their own pace. To achieve this, BEPS is proud to be one of the first schools to adopt the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC). The IEYC is an innovative research-based curriculum, recognising the best international practice and the developmental needs of 2-5 year olds.
Early Years at BEPS
THE PRIMARY PROGRAMME
At BEPS, the students in the Primary classes (Year 1 – Year 6) learn through the National Curriculum strategy from England for Literacy and Numeracy, and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) for all the other subjects.
The IPC offers a cross curricular approach with a clear process of learning and specific goals for History, Science, Geography, the Arts, P.E. Technology and ICT. It provides rigour and high levels of engagement whilst promoting international mindedness and personal development.
French, Music, PE and ICT are taught by specialist teachers.

THE SECONDARY PROGRAMME
BEPS Secondary is an English medium, inquiry driven learning environment where students are connected to their home and host country language and culture.
Studying the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme, Language and Literature, Language Acquisition, Individuals and Societies, Mathematics, Sciences, Design, Physical and Health Education and the Arts, BEPS’ students acquire the attributes of effective learners. In an environment of adaptable, tailor-made, differentiated education, students mature into those who can make a positive difference.
Our Diploma Programme, when in place, will send these internationally minded 16 to 18 year olds into the 21st Century world.
