Attending an Open Morning at IBSB will offer you and your children the chance to experience our academic programme first-hand. You will be able to talk directly with our students to find out about their personal learning journey, meet the teachers and the school leadership team, and discover how we inspire, support, and celebrate student achievement on a day to day basis within a caring and friendly community. Discover how the only High Performance Learning School in Romania can support, develop, and challenge your child to become a successful lifelong learner. 

What does an Open Morning day entail?

Your visit will begin with morning tea with the Heads of School and the Admissions Team, followed by a short presentation by some of our students, who will share their personal learning experience with you, before they take you on a personalised tour of the school. You will be able to visit a variety of classrooms to see learning in progress, look through the class textbooks and student workbooks to gain a view of their learning across time, and speak directly with the teachers, who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

As a part of the morning programme, your children will be able to join their class to experience what a lesson feels like at IBSB, meeting our teachers, and we hope making some new friends along the way. During this time, parents will have the opportunity to attend a presentation on our ‘Curriculum for Excellence’, explaining why so many of our students make above average progress and go on to study at the best universities around the world – presented by some of our students. There will also be plenty of time for a question and answer session with our Heads of School.

At IBSB, we pride ourselves on offering our students the support they need to succeed in their studies – and we invite you to come along and experience our programme for yourselves.

Primary School Open Morning: Years 2 and 5 – TUESDAY, APRIL 23 –

Primary School: Year 2 and Year 5

Limited places available for children aged 6 and 9 as of September 1st 2024

The Primary School Curriculum follows the National Curriculum for England and offers our students a rich learning environment, challenging our students to set high goals and to strive for academic excellence in a truly international context. Our classes are taught by an international team of qualified, experienced native English teachers, each with a bilingual Romanian teaching assistant present in every class.

At IBSB, the focus in Primary School is on developing the IBSB Core Values and High Performance Learning competencies to ensure our students develop a love of learning and grow into successful lifelong learners.

The curriculum focuses on the key areas of: English, Mathematics, Computing, Modern Foreign Languages (Options: French, Spanish, German), Music, PSHE, PE, and Cross Curricular Studies (providing a cohesive focus on Science, Humanities, and Art within a contextual topic or theme).

Each of these subjects is taught discretely and as such is allotted specific time each week on the Primary Timetable. All children are expected to learn Romanian either as a native (following an adapted Romanian curriculum) or as a non-native, following the MFL (Modern Foreign Language) curriculum. English as an Additional Language (EAL) is provided for those children who join us with limited or no English, until such time as their abilities allow them to access the curriculum along with the rest of their class.

Enjoying new experiences, discovering new hobbies and interests, and nurturing student passion and talent is all a part of everyday life as IBSB, as our students are challenged each and every day to grow and become the very best version of themselves.
