Message from The Principal

Welcome to The British School in Tokyo

Situated at the very heart of this dynamic, stimulating city, the BST community is warm and friendly and offers the highest standards of pastoral care. Having developed its reputation for high quality holistic education over almost a quarter of a century, today’s school has more than 700 students, aged 3-18, representing over 50 different nationalities.

This is an inclusive school, but academic standards are high. The English National Curriculum provides the basis for smooth progression and easy transition between the Primary and Secondary sectors, and examination results have been outstanding in recent years. Our experienced teachers, largely recruited from the UK, are consummate professionals who are always willing to go the extra mile to ensure that all students are offered the opportunity to fulfil their potential both in and beyond the classroom.

We are justifiably proud of our academic performance, but at BST education means much more than the pursuit of top grades. Sport and the arts are central to what we offer here, and we are acutely aware of our obligation to equip young people to make their way in the world as confident, caring and responsible global citizens.

Good schools are built on the efforts of good people, and I believe that our teachers and students are among the very best. Why not come and judge for yourselves? We would be delighted to meet you.

Brian Christian – Principal
