BBIA at Berkenye utca 13-15 is the newest facility in a thriving educational community that has been a part of Budapest for the past ten years. Though it started as a one room nursery, Kids' Kiosk quickly grew to one and then two full-service English language kindergartens dedicated to providing the best quality education to children from Hungary and around the world.
In light of this tremendous success, expanding our institutional portfolio to include a primary school allows us to continue to serve the families who have entrusted their children to us across so many years.
We intend our school to be one which has a perfect atmosphere in which happy and relaxed children can enjoy their education and fulfil their goals.
We live in a world of rapid
technological and economic growth and change which potentially renders the
acquisition of technical and subject-based knowledge quickly redundant.

I went to BBIA this SY 2016-2017. I only have one schoolyear in Hungary before moving. This was a wonderful experience for me and I will forever cherish the memories. The mix of culture is the best. And the teachers are super cool! I will miss BBIA but I will always remember. Thank you BBIA.
Our son has just started BBIA. We are absolutely delighted with all aspects of the school. A truly international mix of students, a fantastic, professional group of teachers, and a nurturing environment for children to learn and grow. The support for our child has been beyond our expectations. We look forward to being part of this fantastic school community.

One of the challenges facing British international schools is how to ensure that the pupils have every opportunity to speak English, whilst recognising that children also need the opportunity to develop their language skills in their mother tongue. I believe this article very clearly sums up our
approach to this matter here at BBIA. Clearly this was written by a teacher working in China and addressing to subject of Chinese children talking in Chinese. At our school we have a similar situation with children speaking Hungarian. The article sets out very clearly why it is wrong to insist on
children speaking in English all the time. At BBIA all the lessons are conducted in English and children are encouraged to speak English at all times. However, there are times when, if it is possible, it is educationally beneficial to explain something to children in their mother tongue. When
they are out of the classroom, in line with our expectation that they should "take care of each other", we expect them to speak in English if, by talking in their first language, the exclude other children who do not speak that language, from joining in the conversation or play.
