High school programmes


British independent schools enjoy a worldwide reputation for academic excellence and, each year, thousands of international students come to the UK to study in British boarding schools.

The Bell Bedgebury International School (BBIS) is a unique co-educational boarding school for boys and girls aged 12 – 18 and combines Bell’s unrivalled expertise in English language training with a full curriculum of academic subjects.

Located in the South East of England, close to London, BBIS is set in 220 acres of beautiful parkland and offers a secure and stumilating environment, with access to a broad range of extra-curricular activities.

Key benefits include:

  • A reputation for language and academic excellence - all lessons are delivered by teachers who are specialists in their chosen field. Our teachers are skilled in presenting the challenging subject curriculum in ways which make it easier for non-native speakers to learn effectively.
  • Small class sizes - a maximum 10 students per class ensures staff are able to focus their time and attention on individual students.
  • High-quality study and recreational facilities - a library with views of the formal English gardens and well-equipped classrooms and study centres.
  • An authentic UK boarding school experience - students will wear a uniform, follow a busy timetable and take part in a hectic social calendar of sports, activities and tours around the UK, giving students a true insight into life in the British education system.
  • Living and learning in English - a diverse mix of nationalities ensures that all students are required to use their English skills to communicate. By providing a supportive and encouraging environment we help students to settle in quickly and make lifelong friendships with other pupils from around the world.
  • High standards of pastoral care - we provide a safe, secure and supportive environment for our students 24 hours a day. Boys and girls live in separate accommodation with their own house parents.
