An Invitation from the Headmaster

Thank you for taking the time to look at the website of the British School of Algiers (BSA). If you are a visitor to this site, I hope that it will give you an insight into our School, and if you are already a part of our community, I hope that it will form a valuable reference point to keep you updated on daily life and future developments at the BSA.

The BSA is a unique school in Algeria in that we follow the National Curriculum of England with additional elements such as the study of the national languages and history and culture of Algeria. We educate boys and girls from the ages of four to eighteen. We wish to stand proud as a beacon of educational excellence in Algeria, providing the life lessons of lasting impact and great worth: self-discipline, integrity of character and empathy for others. A sense of values should permeate every aspect of your child’s time here. Together with an international mindset, our students are prepared to work in globally mobile teams in any location in the future.

As such, the BSA brings children together from many nations to learn and grow together. Our team of experienced and qualified teachers, many of whom are from the U.K., are dedicated to providing children with the best that international education has to offer. The curriculum prepares our students to sit for the rigorous Cambridge IGCSE and A-Level programmes at the ages of sixteen and eighteen. Both qualifications are prestigious and recognised by universities around the world. We provide tailor-made advice and support for university entrance, and we guide our students to reach their full potential.

However, education does not take place only in the classroom. Vital lessons are also learned whilst playing sport, performing on stage or exploring outdoors, and so all students at the BSA are encouraged take risks. A child’s time at school must be a period of growth for an individual to explore their mind's full potential. All these educational experiences combine to provide students with the practical knowledge and skills needed to thrive beyond school.

For any school to be successful, it must act in open and honest partnership with families supported by purposeful communication. We always welcome visitors and would be delighted to provide you with a tour to see our facilities and meet with the staff and children. I look forward to the opportunity to speak with you personally.
