Located in the beautiful and prestigious green area of district XII in the Buda Hills, Britannica is truly a multicultural British style school offering education at the highest standard for both local and international students.

The foundation of our educational programme is the National Curriculum for England which is enhanced to reflect our truly international nature.

In our Secondary Department, we offer the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), Advanced Subsidiary Levels (AS) and Advanced Levels (A Levels), provide graduating students with gold standard diplomas for entry to leading universities around the world.

In recent years our public examination scores have been above the UK national average and our A level grades have allowed our students to enter many prestigious universities, both in Hungary and overseas. The school is a registered Cambridge International Examinations Centre, an accredited Pearson Edexcel International Exam Centre and a full member of the Council of International Schools. This has many benefits.


At Britannica, we challenge and nurture our students to become responsible, respectful and resolute global citizens. Within our caring and diverse international community, they evolve into independent and inquisitive lifelong learners, happily striving for excellence in everything they do.
