A Gateway to University

A warm welcome to you to the British School Lomé, where we are committed to providing an international education that upholds the best traditions of British independent schooling. We offer a safe, nurturing, and inclusive environment, catering to both the local and expatriate community. Our pupils receive an outstanding, modern all-through education from 18 months to 18 years, with our boarding school starting from boarders aged 8.


One of the great strengths of BSL is its happy, friendly, and inclusive community, which is a wonderful reflection of the people and culture of Togo. At the British School Lomé, our vision is to inspire and enable every student to reach their true potential and become responsible participants in a global world.

We take students from Year 4 (age 8) to IB Diploma level, creating a haven that feels like a cherished second home.

We recognise the importance of a well-rounded education, promoting the development of physical, social, emotional, and cultural aspects alongside academic achievement.


Parental, Alumni and Community Involvement: We strongly believe in the collaboration between school, parents, and the wider community, fostering strong partnerships to support our students' growth and success. Through our global Alumni network, we continue to support and open doors for our students long after they have last set foot in school.
