Can anyone advise on the best British school in Budapest? My children are 5,12,13 and we will be there for 4 or 5 years. I have seen the websites for both British schools (BISB and Britannica) but need an unbiased opinion.

Hi

International schools in Budapest is a bit of a touchy subject amongst parents that I know, some of whom are concerned with the academic standards. I don't know enough to make a recommendation, but one obvious consideration is cost. If your company is paying, then this will not matter, but if you are paying, then it cannot be ignored.
All schools have websites:

ISB (International) www.isb.hu
AISB (American school) www.aisb.hu
BISB (British school) www.bisb.hu
Britannica School www.britannicaschool.hu (Spencer's school)
Greater Grace www.ggis.hu ( a Christian School)
International Christian School www.icsbudapest.org

BISB is the favourite amongst expats who do not pay the fees themselves (over £12k per annum). The Budapest Times, the English-language paper ran a special on these schools a few months ago. 8 March Issue. You could check that out: http://www.budapesttimes.hu/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=16960&Itemid=196
