The British School of Tenerife
The British School of Tenerife is a new school with a lot of experience and history behind it. Founded by the merging of two schools in the north of Tenerife, Trinity School and the International British Yeoward School the new school is an exciting mix of the best of both schools.
Children and young people from the age of 2 to 18 can receive an excellent education in the BST as can be seen by the well rounded adults who have finished their education at Trinity and Yeoward schools and by exam results gained by students from both schools to date.
