The school is conveniently located between Antwerp and Brussels with school bus services from various locations. We offer a world-class education with competitive fees. The school is accredited by the International Baccalaureate and is a member of a number of global bodies.
At ISBe we aim to equip all our learners with 21st century skills, enabling them to be critical thinkers, creative team players, technologically savvy, independent and confident risk takers.
Our school does this through its curriculum and the world renowned IPC, IGCSE and IB Diploma programmes.
In our Co-Curricular Programme we offer activities that go beyond the classroom and enable students to stretch their abilities and try new pursuits. Children can choose from a range of activities, including artistic expression, music, sports, ICT, swimming, drama, coding and programming etc.
Our CCP activities are particularly interesting for students who wish to deeper explore their interests or who wish to extend certain skills. A full overview of our Co-Curricular Programme is shared with our parents each year in a brochure and students are allowed to choose up to three activities per week.
The language of teaching is English, although Dutch and French are also offered.
A two-year high school diploma administered by a world-renowned non-governmental educational organisation.
Students study six subjects: 3 at Higher Level (HL) and 3 at Standard Level (SL), which they choose from six subject groups.
Studies in Language and Literature
Individuals and Societies
In addition to the six subjects, all students take part in the three core components that sets the IB Diploma Programme apart from other high school diplomas.
Nursery / Pre-K Programs
Pre-school (Full time) uses nature's way of learning – play, to enhance children's development. The teachers use the principles of the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) to develop the children's knowledge, skills and understanding of themselves and the world around them. They also follow the UK Letters and Sounds phonics scheme and the UK Abacus Maths programme to develop their English and Maths skills, at an age appropriate level, alongside the IEYC. We have fully qualified English speaking staff together with our PE and Music specialists and the children are encouraged to regularly borrow books from our Library to support their learning.
At ISBe our Parent Association (PA) plays a vital role in school life and we welcome all parents to become involved.
Our PA facilitates parental participation in school in a positive way and helps build a sense of community around the school.
