The British School of Zanzibar (BSZ) is a private school that offers international Nursery and Primary education that follows both British and Tanzanian Curriculum. It is a social enterprise that is structured as a non-profit under company decree.
BSZ is less than a 20 minutes drive from Stone Town, and just 5 minutes from the Zanzibar International Airport.
Three Zanzibari businesswomen aiming to provide an adequate educational experience for the youth of Zanzibar established the school the 31st of January 2007. In addition to the schoolâ€™s integrative approach to education, its demographic is multicultural; being made up of students from many parts of the world.
