Working at

Our vibrant co-educational, day school has an international enrolment of over 2150 students from more than 30 different nationalities, ranging from the ages of 2 to 18 years. Our programme of study is delivered in English and is based on the International Primary Curriculum in the primary years and we offer a range of Cambridge IGCSE examinations (for 14 to 16 year olds) and the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma (for 16 to 18 year olds). In recognition of our location and host country we integrate aspects of Brazilian culture, language and education into our programme which ultimately fulfills the requirements of the Brazilian Diploma.

Our graduating students enter universities and colleges around the world, principally in the UK, North America, Europe and, of course, Brazil. The British School also recognises the great benefits of offering extra-curricular activities to our students. As well as many opportunities for exciting school trips within Brazil and further afield, we have developed a strong sense of community service with local projects. The School is also very committed to a thriving Duke of Edinburgh programme and Model United Nations. The British School, Rio de Janeiro operates as a non-profit organisation. As such, The School continually invests in well-qualified staff and their training, curriculum development, resources, technology and infrastructure, including new buildings.

Over the past years, The British School has expanded to incorporate 3 separate sites within Rio de Janeiro: a unit in Zona Sul (split into two sites: Botafogo and Urca) and a newly developed unit in Barra, west of the main city. The British School has an exciting future with further planned growth at the Barra Unit and many educational initiatives which will sustain it as a leading international school and, indeed, one of the largest in South America. The school is proud of its vision of “a caring community, striving for excellence where every individual matters.
