English schools in Asia
The British School, New Delhi was founded in 1963 to provide an education based on British standards and practice to children of British parents living in New Delhi. Today we have an international body of students but continue to follow British patterns of instruction and standards of education.
The school provides a stimulating, challenging yet supportive environment for the student body of over 55 nationalities, the focus being on all rounded growth: intellectual, physical, spiritual creative and social. It believes that excellence matters but so does individuality: that people and cultures are different and wisdom lies in exploring that difference not suppressing it.
Being located in the diplomatic area of New Delhi, surrounded by trees and open areas, the school is easily accessible. It is set in its own playing fields and facilities include Science Laboratories, Computer Laboratories, Libraries, Music, Art and Drama areas and a multipurpose hall.
Years 1-9 follow the English National Curriculum in the core areas of English, Mathematics and Science. There is some change of content in other subjects, particularly in the Social Studies area, to take advantage of our unique location in New Delhi.
Years 10 and 11 are prepared for GCSE and years 12 and 13 for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. The school is affiliated to two examination boards- EDEXCEL(London) and CIE(Cambridge). Students, whose parents request it, can be prepared for common entrance.
The School is an accredited member of the Council of International Schools (CIS) and of the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO)
