We were established in Nepal in 1966 by a group of British and Commonwealth parents who wanted a British-style education for their children. The school received official recognition from His Majesty’s Government of Nepal on the 7th July 1967 and has subsequently been under the patronage of the British Embassy.
In 1997, it was decided to extend the school to include Key Stage 3 students and we moved to our present site, here in Jhamsikhel, Lalitpur. In February 1998, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales officially opened our new school site. In August 2004, we extended our school again to offer A Levels, with our first graduating cohort of students going to universities in 2006. The British School Kathmandu now educates 585 students from ages 3-18 from over 40 different countries, from both local and expatriate families, who trust us to care for and educate their children.
