On 4th September we had more than 200 prospective parents visit our primary schools. Tours were held every 45min by our parents. It was a great day and we hope our future parents got a glimpse about BBS. The Monday after, our head of Hort (Sarah Vissers) and Andrew Comerford (Head of Primary) gave an insightful presentation on our pedagogy. You missed it? Don't worry, please download the file:

Dear BBS students,
We wish you all a good start into the new school year. Surely you are just as excited as your teachers and educators. It will be a great year with many new discoveries, excursions, projects and friendships.
This week we welcome all new and old BBS students and our 1st grade has its introductory week, with parents still accompanying their children. In 7th grade the workshop "How to BBS" will take place on Thursday and Friday.
The Leadership Team
From 29th to 2nd of August, BBS staff members will be returning to school in preparation for the forthcoming school year. We have a number of new staff members joining this year and we will also be welcoming back members of staff who have been on leave.
On Monday, we will give new staff members a brief history of BBS. The founders, the concept, its evolution and finally its future of which they will be part of.
On Tuesday, we welcome everybody back and begin the day with some coffee, croissants and catch up on each others summer adventure. Then it is down to business!
Due to the extraordinary heat we regret to inform you that we will have to adapt the offer of our Hort programme; i.e. the trips for tomorrow are cancelled and we will watch movies with chilled fruit spritzers, smoothies and fans in the cafeteria and play with water in the shady parts of the garden.
Please, provide appropriate clothing for the water and sun protection, such as light hats, UV-protective clothing and sun cream.
The Berliner newspapers have published the Abitur grades and we can proudly announce that BBS has come second best of Berlin - with an average of 1.6. A huge success for our first Abiturient*innen!
Great news! On 21st May Berlin Bilingual School - primary and secondary - will be awarded with Schule ohne Rassismus - Schule mit Courage. Our students collected enough signatures to join the EU - wide network.
