BSM Mission Statement

To inspire learning within a caring, creative and international community, to pursue excellence, and to enable students to fulfil their ambitions.

The British School of Milan, founded in 1969, is rated among the top 5 IB schools in Europe, No.1 in Italy, and top 50 in the world. The BSM is the only school in Milan passing all the standards set by UK Government Inspectors (ISI).

The BSM is a not-for-profit school which provides a world-class education to 760 students aged 3 to 18 from over 50 different nationalities. The school values cultural diversity and offers a rich international experience while rigorously following the UK National Curriculum from Nursery to Year 11 with the IB pursued in Years 12 an 13.

Academic results are outstanding and students progress to top universities around the globe. In the last few years they have gained places at Oxford, Cambridge, Yale, LSE, Columbia, Imperial, University College London, The University of Edinburgh, Trinity College Dublin, Università Bocconi, University of British Columbia, Sciences-Po and many other leading universities.

There is a strong emphasis on co-curricular activities with over 100 options available. The school is particularly proud of its exceptional music, art and drama departments. In addition, BSM acts as the Italian centre for the exam board of the Royal School of Music. The school nourishes a strong tradition of community service, with a scholarship and bursary fund recently inaugurated and its 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.
