Principal's Welcome

A very warm welcome to the British School Jakarta (BSJ) in the beautiful country of Indonesia. BSJ was founded in 1974 with support from the British Embassy to educate the British and Commonwealth families living in Jakarta. Today, we still have many expatriate families at the school, as well as many Indonesian families, forming a community of over fifty nationalities, with students from the ages of 3 – 18.

Located in South West Jakarta, BSJ has a beautiful 18 acre campus that has been specifically designed to enrich the academic life of all of our students. From the classrooms and hubs in Primary to the specialist classrooms in Secondary, staff and students together are able to enjoy high quality teaching and learning. In addition to these academic facilities, we have a large theatre, a swimming pool, tennis courts and football pitches on campus to provide multiple opportunities for students to have an enriched experience at the school. In 2018, we completed our new sports hall, which is of national standard specifications.

Our curriculum is compatible with both British and International education systems, which allows students to have a truly multi-layered learning experience, from inquiry based learning in Primary and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), through to Key Stage 3, (i)GCSE’s and the IB Diploma programme, where our results in both are consistently above the world average.

The philosophy at BSJ is to provide an education to meet the needs of our students now and to equip them to partake in the opportunities of the future. BSJ takes great pride in its tradition of being a leader in British International Education. BSJ, through its wonderful community and collaborative partnerships provides an education that is more than just a school. Our students have numerous opportunities to find and explore their passions and talent within school life that synergizes with their academic progress. The academic and life skills that they learn at the school are so vital for their future success.

Welcome to our school.
