British School of Geneva
BSG is the only school in the area to offer the English National Curriculum from Year 1 through to A-Levels, making it an obvious choice for students transitioning from, or returning to, a British based curriculum.

BSG is an international school and welcomes students from over 40 nationalities. Core subjects are taught in English though the French language is an important part of the syllabus.

Class sizes are small: max 16 pupils in years 1-11 and max 10 in years 12-13. For a small school, facilities are exceptional. All teaching staff are qualified and experienced.

Fees are very affordable compared to other international schools in the area. BSG is proud to be a member of the Council of British International Schools and of the Geneva Association of Private Schools.
