What is a British International School?

Located in the heart of Casal Palocco, a renowned residential neighborhood a few kilometers from the sea and surrounded by greenery, B.I.G. British International School is the only international school in the tenth municipality of Rome (and one of the few in the Capital) to follow the English National Curriculum.

Although young, the institute – which welcomes children aged 3 to 11, from Nursery to Year 6 – already represents an excellence, offering its students an unparalleled educational experience, combining tradition and innovation in the best possible way.

The English National Curriculum

Following the English National Curriculum does not only mean acquiring full mastery of the language, which is fundamental in an increasingly globalized world. At B.I.G. British International School, our students have a balanced, enriching and complete learning experience with active, experiential learning at the heart of our offer.

Our teachers, who come from all over the world, are committed to instilling an international mindset; our students embrace the opportunity to intertwine local geography and history alongside British values and world festivities.

Lessons are often cross-curricular, meeting several subject objectives simultaneously. The subject areas include English, Maths, Science, Topic (History and Geography), Computing, Art, Music, P.E. (Physical Education), PSHRE (Personal, Social, Health and Religious Education), Italian and Spanish (in Year 5 and Year 6).

Outdoor Education is also an integral part of the B.I.G curriculum: all areas of the curriculum benefit from active lessons in our outdoor spaces, as well as encouraging our students’ love of the natural world.

Attending a British International School such as B.I.G. means following the same programme and educational path as someone living in the United Kingdom or attending any other British International School in the world. The English National Curriculum is among the most renowned, prestigious and recognized in the world, and opens the doors to any academic path, in any country.

The English National Curriculum is also a guarantee for international families and for those who often move for work, because unlike other international or bilingual programmes, the English one is taught in every corner of the globe, following the same principles and objectives set by B.I.G. British International School.
