The British School of Milan (Sir James Henderson) has been educating students in Milan since 1969. This year marks not only its 50th anniversary but also the 10th anniversary of its IB Diploma programme. The school is not-for-profit and the only Milanese school inspected by the UK's Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI). In 2018 it achieved the highest rating of 'Excellent' on a full inspection.
It provides a high quality balanced and academic British education to age 16 with IGCSE examinations in Year 11 and then the IB Diploma in the Sixth Form. With over 40 nationalities represented, the school offers a rich international and educational experience.
Academic results are excellent and students progress to top universities around the globe. In the last few years they have gained places in both arts and sciences at Oxford, LSE, Imperial, University College London, The University of Edinburgh, Trinity College Dublin, Università Bocconi, University of British Colombia, Science Po and many other leading universities.
There is a strong emphasis on the co-curricular with over 100 activities on offer. The school is particularly proud of its outstanding music, art and drama departments. In addition, the school acts as the Italian headquarters for the UK based ABRSM, the exam board of the Royal Schools of Music. The school is very proud of its strong tradition of community service and involvement in the International Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.
The BSM is situated just outside the centre of Milan, close to the metro and on several bus routes. Linate airport and the popular Milano 2 residences are just minutes from the school.
Admission applications are accepted throughout the year.
