Secondary School Provision

Secondary age pupils (UK entitled only) are eligible to attend the British School of Brussels (BSB). The fees for this school are paid in full by the MOD for entitled personnel serving in SHAPE. This is an impressive British international school with excellent facilities and high test results operating GCSE, A-level and International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes. There is a requirement for pupils to be interviewed prior to enrolment into BSB. Parents must be aware that it is not always possible for BSB to cater for children with specific educational needs and that enrolment of any child is space dependent and at the discretion of BSB. Early application for school places is highly recommended.

To find out more information about the school, please view their website at:

Transport for entitled UK pupils is provided to and from BSB by the European Joint Support Unit (EJSU) from a central collection point at  Homestart’s SHAPE House. It should be noted that there is a substantial commute with the children leaving at 0650 hrs and returning at approximately 1700 hrs.

Some families prefer a more local education without the commuting distances. In SHAPE, pupils are fortunate that they can also attend Secondary schools which are part of SHAPE International School, depending on space available. These include the Belgian High School (taught in French), the US Middle/High School (taught in English) and the German High School (taught in German). The US Middle School is frequently used by British pupils and operates an admissions policy in which they will admit all pupils unless there is a particular special educational need for which they do not have the specialist provision. Contact details for these schools can be found on the SHAPE 2day website:
