Welcome from the Headmaster

Parents and school with one goal - the best for your child!

Dear Plovdiv community,

With great honor and excitement, I would like to introduce myself as the founding Headmaster of the British School of Sofia’s Plovdiv Campus. This is my ninth year in international education and the second COBIS school that I have led; it is my first time working in Europe. My wife and I are grateful for the opportunity to live and work in beautiful Bulgaria, a country that has always been a dream of mine to visit. I consider it a great privilege to lead a school with such ambition, vision, and a history of success.

Our fully renovated and child-friendly building in Markovo is now ready for students. We will start as a primary school, slowly expanding as we grow into a school for all ages of pupils. We will build on the success of the British School of Sofia (BSS) – our parent school – bringing quality education to the young minds of Plovdiv. Being a campus of BSS, which is the only Department for Education (DfE) registered British School Overseas (BSO) in Bulgaria, we aim to create the same success in the European capital of culture, Plovdiv. BSS is the only accredited member of the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) in Bulgaria, evidence of the excellence in education that we have been providing for nearly 10 years.

At the Plovdiv campus, we believe that every child is unique and that each and every student has the potential to grow and succeed. Students enjoy coming to school as our qualified and forward-thinking teachers foster their love of learning to reach new levels of knowledge, skills and attitudes. At a young age, students become inquiring and independent learners through the Keys to Success that BSS has developed over the years.

We are located in Markovo, a clean and quiet environment for learning. If you would like to see our new campus or meet our teachers, please do not hesitate to reach out and arrange a visit.
