The British School of Lome is now in its 30th year providing an outstanding educational program for the international community in Lome as well as providing boarding services to students across West Africa. BSL has earned the reputation of being among the most outstanding international schools in West Africa by combining the best of British education with the International Baccalaureate program. This prepares its graduates for universities around the world while the friendly and family-like atmosphere helps instill traditional values such as discipline, respect and integrity.

As a co-educational boarding and day school, our pupils are from more than thirty countries and range from 3 to 18 years of age. In Lome we are the school of choice for the foreign community as well as Togolese families looking for an excellent preparation for their children for university studies in English. For families in neighboring countries our boarding program offers ease of travel to and from home so that students can spend time with their families during even short holidays.

Our students enjoy first-class, globally recognized academic programs and a comprehensive array of sporting, cultural and performing arts activities. The academic and co-curricular choices available allow our students to explore interests and develop talents while preparing them for future opportunities anywhere in the global community.

Putting it simply we offer a first class British education to international students in an environment that is firmly based within its regional context. In the words of one parent “We chose the British School of Lome because we wanted to put our daughter in an academically challenging , yet positive and nurturing environment. We have been very happy with our decision.”
