The British School of Tenerife provides a high quality British education for children of all ages in an open, multi-cultural environment; allowing each child to achieve their full potential in a positive learning community.
At the British School of Tenerife we pride ourselves on offering an excellent education to students of different abilities. We are known for our friendly, family atmosphere and for the excellent behaviour of our students. Our students come from many different countries and family backgrounds. In this international environment students learn tolerance and respect for each other.
The school is housed on two sites with a two-form entry offering education from the age of two through to A Levels with facilities for 725 pupils.
BST Primary School- Yeoward-La Luz:
This purpose built school will accommodate pupils from Toddlers (Playgroup) to Year 6. The Early Years Department, Playgroup, Nursery and Reception unit consists of 6 bright and airy classrooms with ample play space for outdoor activities. Primary has 12 classes, again all with natural light and ventilation.
School facilities include: a Library, SEN room and Computer Suite complemented by iPads used in class; a Music Room, an indoor Sports Hall and an outdoor sports ground and a playground and a large dining hall which provides snacks and homemade meals at lunch time, made fresh every day.
BST Secondary School- Trinity
Situated in Los Realejos the Secundary School accommodates pupils from Year 7 to Year 13 on a site with two playgrounds, a library, 2 computer suites, an art room and 3 science labs. The school kitchen prepares snacks and lunch daily using fresh produce from local suppliers. Although the Trinity site does not have an on-site sports hall we use the Los Realejos’ Sports Hall which is located beside the school. The Sports centre has both indoor and outdoor facilities for football, basketball, gymnastics and a beach volleyball court. The school has a garden area where students can sit and read or chat during break or lunch times.
Results at the British School of Tenerife are excellent, above the national average in the UK. Students leaving the BST are highly prepared to register in Universities around the world, and are very able to enter the work market with qualifications that will make them highly employable; and enter the outside world as exemplary citizens.
