Independent Bonn International School

With more than 200 pupils from 38 nations, the Independent Bonn International School (IBIS) has been an anchor of the international community in Bonn for more than 50 years. Founded as the British Embassy Preparatory School in 1963, the school today offers first-rate education for children aged 3 to 13 years from both the local and international communities.

IBIS is inspected by the British government and was rated as outstanding in all categories in the most recent inspection. Our academic programme is based on both the British and German curriculums, which provides fantastic opportunities for our pupils to be successful in both German and international schools.
