The BBS secondary school will move in summer 2020. BBS became owners of a building complex in Granitzstr. 38(A) in December last year.
We are now in the starting blocks to submit our building application and continue the planning for the move. Although ambitious, we hope to be in Pankow for the new school year. This will now become our home for the years to come. We are very happy that the long search has now come to an end and that we can look positively into the new year. The new building covers almost 1000m2 with a spacious schoolyard. The physics, bio and chemistry laboratory...
We are very happy to announce that our primary students accumulated a whopping amount of 5.200 EUR while running hundreds of laps in the „Kinderverkehrsschule“ Berlin. This year we selected a foundation based in Liberia/ Berlin („Growing Tree Liberia“) and „Unter Druck“, an association based in Berlin and working with homeless people. Growing Tree Liberia works in an international context with children and orphans who may not have the means otherwise to attend school.
BBS has selected these two organisations based on their values, mission and great impact. Both organisations came...

BBS held annual second, annual, STE(Art)M week this November and one cannot help be inspired by the excitement and motivation generated by both students and adults alike.

Pauline (Music Teacher) and Jens (Hausmeister) provided musical inspiration with both German and English moon inspired tracks being played throughout the event. On Tuesday, our students were provided with street glitter chalk and measuring...
Every year we have a week run dedicated to an ecological topic. This year’s focus was „the bee“. Especially in our primary school, our students learned about making honey, insects and bees as well as the week included many fun outings, like to the Naturkundemuseum of Berlin. However, this did not stop grade 8a who used the packaging of UHT milk cartons from the staff kitchen to learn about drypoint etching technique. Responding to the beautiful contour drawings of Henri Matisse, the students drew straight onto the material with etching needles, before inking up and running them through the...
The Alba-Oberschulliga Basketball tournaments are back underway for school year 2019/20 and once again BBS will be represented by 3 teams. Our WK III girls who travelled to the Albert Schweizer Gymnasium on Wednesday the 23rd of October to take on the aforementioned school as well as the Alfred Nobel Schule in first round action.
The girls first game was against the Alfred Nobel Schule and was an absolute nailbiter with BBS scoring a buzzer beater to win in the the last second, 24-22. The girls grew in confidence in the second game playing some free flowing attacking basketball...
