Beps brings its growing secondary school back home
We are delighted to officially announce our expansion by entering into an agreement to acquire the building of Lycee Moliere. The site is attached to the BEPS Primary School building. This will allow the growing BEPS Secondary School to join the Early Years & Primary School at the same location where the BEPS adventure started in 1972. The transformation of the new building will give BEPS the opportunity to design spaces for innovative, authentic and engaging learning which matches the BEPS approach to learning in the Middle and High School.
This building, which is presently occupied by Lycee Moliere will be heavily transformed to enable BEPS to educate future generations. The historical part of the building will be preserved, whilst indoors, dynamic learning spaces will be created which will challenge the boundaries of what a school can be.
In order to ensure a good implementation of the IB programmes, the improvements of the building will include a science lab, an art and design studio and a ‘makerspace’ where students can come to create, design, take workshops, be challenged and inspire each other.
We plan for the Secondary School to begin the academic year 2022-2023 in its new home. The current location of BEPS Secondary School is Avenue Bel Air 91, Uccle.
Our Board of Directors, Christian Clivaz and Poul Sorensen said: “We have a passion for education and, as board members, we strive to always further improve our school. We strongly believe that these upgrades to our campus will provide wonderful opportunities for our students and ensure they have high quality learning environments.”
With the growth of the Secondary school, BEPS will cater for children between 2,5 – 18 years old. Our aim is to achieve the full capacity of the school, 450 students, in the coming years. In spite of the additional space, BEPS will preserve it’s ‘family feeling’, of which we are so proud.
