The British School, founded in 1924, is a non-profit, independent and co-educational day school located in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Our school aims to give students a broad, balanced, relevant, and differentiated educational experience. The educational philosophy and practice is primarily British in nature with international and Brazilian elements incorporated where appropriate. Our students acquire both Brazilian (Ensino Fundamental and Ensino Médio) and international qualifications. It has an international enrolment of over 2100 students from more than 60 different nationalities ranging from the ages of 2 to 18 years. Our programme of study is delivered in English and is based on the UK National Curriculum and the IPC programmes (for 2 to 14 year olds), Cambridge IGCSE examinations (for 14 to 16 year olds) and the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma (for 16 to 18 year olds).
