It is our pleasure to welcome you to the website of the British School of Tirana. We trust that you find the information helpful.
The main purpose of the British School of Tirana is to ensure that the young people we serve are well prepared for the challenges they face in a rapidly changing world. While preparing young people to thrive through academic success, a central part of their education at the British School of Tirana is to nurture the development of character through an engaging curriculum and supportive programme.
BST started in 2016 as an Early Years setting and developed quickly to a Primary, Secondary and A-Level school. BST is the first and the only fully accredited British Style educational institution in Albania inspected regularly by British inspectors.

At British School of Tirana, the education of the ‘whole child’ is at the heart of our philosophy. In the Early Years Nursery and the Primary School, the class teacher is responsible for the general well-being, as well as the academic development of their students. We want the time they spend at the school to be a happy and secure one. In the Secondary School, this is the role of the Form Tutor.
