Head's Welcome

Welcome To BSSP


Welcome to The British School of St. Petersburg (BSSP).

Our school’s mission is to be “A World Leading School,” which means nothing less than having the highest standards in everything we do. We are unashamedly ambitious with the education we provide, ensuring our children thrive, not just academically, but also personally and socially. Every child who attends our school is unique and we endeavour to instil not only a love of learning but values and experiences, that will remain with them throughout their lives.

At The British School of St Petersburg, we develop the whole child. We provide each pupil with the skills, knowledge and understanding that enables them to become proficient as specialists in every field. We acknowledge that the core foundations of a successful education are built upon reading, writing and mathematics, but we also endeavour to see students succeed in the arts, sciences, humanities and sports by giving them a wide variety of access and opportunities to these subjects.

The teachers at our school are not just specialist teachers in the classroom, they are blessed with a wide range of skills and enthusiasm that inspire the children. Their expertise extends across areas as diverse as drama, singing, rugby, netball, swimming, football, French and music. Our curriculum and timetable allow children to enjoy their learning as they discover and evolve through lessons and activities tailored to their needs and abilities.

From the age of two, we have a community of children, staff and parents who share a common goal of watching the children and school thrive and achieve the high standards that are constantly set. We know that for anyone to succeed they have to feel safe and confident in their surroundings. We want everyone at BSSP to have fun, explore, take chances and have an undiluted ambition in the knowledge there is always someone there to help guide to them to the next step regardless if they triumph or make a mistake.

Whether children have goals of entry into elite independent UK schools and universities or to be Nobel Prize Winners, World Cup Winners or appear on the West End, we are confident that as a cohesive community of teachers and parents we have both the atmosphere and facilities to make those dreams become a reality.

I hope the rest of our website helps to further provide you with a sense of the school we are and the values we represent. I look forward to you visiting so you can see first-hand the quality of education we provide and the undeniable enthusiasm and passion we share.

Kind regards,

Mr Leon Clarke
