Curriculum and learning

The school follows the British National Curriculum, which is one of three main internationally recognised curricula. Students who graduate from National Curriculum schools can choose to study in most universities worldwide without requiring to sit additional examinations.

The National Curriculum is known for its clear teaching guidelines, including teaching requirements of minimum teaching hours for subjects as well as guidelines on teaching the gifted and talented.

The school also has a comprehensive Chinese second language programme whereby all students have numerous Chinese lessons weekly.

Students who speak English as a second language are assisted through an EAL programme, which includes multi-level support delivered by specialist teachers.

Location and facilities

In January 2016 BSN moved to a new campus. The campus features:

  • Indoor swimming pool,
  • Basketball gym,
  • Foundation stage gym,
  • Tennis court,
  • Full size football field
  • Outdoor basketball court
  • Dedicated kitchen and dining facilities
  • Enclosed valley play areas
  • Outdoor auditorium
  • Nature walkways through forests
  • Educational Farm
  • Hack-a-thon room
  • Self Organised Learning Environment (SOLE) room

The site sits nestled on a quiet residential street on the foot of Cuiping Mountain at the boundary of the Jiangjun National Park. Views from the campus overlook the new enclosed outdoor sports and play areas to the forested mountains beyond.

As a result of ongoing concerns as to air pollution, in December 2018, the school announced its decision to employ a CleanFlow positive pressure system, as designed and supplied by Environment Assured, that shall deliver PM2.5 levels of less than 10 ug/m3.[4]

Its previous campus was in three buildings along Baijia Lake,[5] at Jinling Resort.[6]
