The British School is a private international school in Sanepa, Kathmandu, Province No. 3, Nepal. It was established in 1966 to serve the British community but is an inclusive school which has over 25 different nationalities as of 2015. The British school offers education from nursery and foundation up to Year 13 (British Grades). In American grades that means from pre-school and kindergarten up to 12th grade.

The British School does many events over the course of the year. Some of these events are Sports Day, International Day, Productions, and many more.

It delivers the English National Curriculum with full-time UK recruited staff. It plans to move to a purpose-built new school with capacity large enough for around 650 students.[1]

The school has its own artificial turf pitches, two multi-purpose sports areas, science laboratories, a Sixth Form Centre, and two libraries, one for primary and one for secondary. It also has many small gardens, a duck pond, and parking for staff and students, including bike stands.
