Matthew Tansley Head of Secondary School

Head of Secondary Message

I welcome you to the Secondary School at IBSB. We are committed to nurturing every child in our care; instilling in them confidence, a sense of self-worth and a passion for life-long learning.

We provide a broad range of challenging educational experiences. We offer small classes and an extensive range of academic subjects taught in modern, well equipped and spacious classrooms. Our teachers are well qualified and dedicated and as a staff body we aim to inspire, support and celebrate the achievements of all our students. Our students achieve excellent results both at IGCSE and A Level, with many going on to study at Ivy League or Russell Group Universities in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Learning takes place both in and outside the classroom. There are many exciting educational outings and visits in Bucharest itself, in Romania and further afield that enhance learning. The school offers a broad range of co-curricular activities that help to develop the mind, body and soul of every student, developing resilient, confident learners who are well prepared for their future endeavours.

IBSB is a school characterised by constructive, caring and trusting relationships. It is a place where the small class sizes enable all students to thrive; a place where honesty, integrity and consideration of others is highly valued. I believe that these qualities make IBSB a great school and can only be conveyed through first-hand experience. To this end I look forward to meeting you and showing you what IBSB can offer your son or daughter.
