Welcome to BJAB, where children reach their potential through high academic standards and a nurturing environment.

Welcome from the Headteacher

To experience BJAB is to understand how wonderfully creative, energetic, kind and thoughtful our pupils are. Children come to BJAB from around the world and always show how, with expert teaching and support, they surpass expectations. I’m always delighted to show visitors, parents and alumni how the school achieves the highest standards within a caring and family atmosphere.
