"Happy children achieve more"
Dear Parents,

May I warmly welcome you to the BICS community!

Our school strives to maintain a caring and enthusiastic environment where we challenge everyone to achieve their academic and personal potential. We do so in the context of our Christian values of respect of each person, of other people and the world around us. We place the child at the centre of all our efforts. It is important that the learning experience is both sufficiently structured and enjoyable so that pupils are motivated to achieve their best.

Our vision is to work with families in the task of educating your children in a climate of mutual trust and cooperation between leadership, teachers, pupils and parents. We have a thriving English programme in our medium-sized school that numbers around 202 children. This enables us to form a learning community where every individual is cared for and is able to fulfil his or her potential and become confident learners. Our remarkable national and cultural diversity is an inspiring example of how, on a small scale, we are able to build a harmonious and fulfilled community.

All our teachers show extraordinary dedication to their pupils, expecting the best of the stronger and encouraging the weaker. Students who leave BICS are typically confident, gregarious, dynamic and empathetic. We hope they will cherish the knowledge, skills and values they have learned here and keep them for life.

I am delighted that you are considering BICS as a potential choice. You are very welcome to book a visit and see all of this in action.

Canon William Hudson, MA (Cantab) – Headmaster
Canon Hudson is a priest of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest. Before his seminary studies near to Florence, Italy, he read history at Magdalene College, Cambridge. He has been Headmaster for the past eighteen years.

  • “Thank you for all you do for our children. We appreciate and love how you treat each child as a child of God worthy of respect and dignity. The teachers are amazing: thank you for taking the time to help out your students and for understanding their different learning styles and abilities. Most of all thank you to BICS for modelling Christian values and behaviour....”

  • "I'm very happy with BICS. Academically, it is very advanced in both French and English. The children in the Primary school can already write essays, analyse articles, do mental maths. Spelling and Reading are subjects that the children at BICS enjoy. The teachers are very qualified and friendly...”

  • We arrived at the Brussels International Catholic School (BICS) and we were very impressed with the welcoming international community of students and teachers. The educators are experts in their individual fields with real-world experience inside and outside the classroom. The school does an excellent job supporting the learning needs of the students by having opportunities for differential learning. The main reason we selected BICS was because we were looking for an academically rigorous school with a solid curriculum, clear expectations, and expert teaching. BICS met and exceeded all those expectations. More importantly to us, however, was the truly welcoming Catholic ethos that permeates the school and provides a very well-rounded learning environment for all the students.
  • C'est une école où la proximité et la fluidité de la communication entre enseignants, élèves et parents renforcent leurs apprentissages.
