Thank you for your interest in the Benghazi European School. I hope that you will find the information you need as you browse through the following pages. As you will discover, the BES is a well-established institution with an enviable reputation for quality education. High on our list of priorities is the commitment to provide our young people with a caring learning environment which focuses on developing self-confidence and independence.
The eruption of the COVID-19 pandemic necessitated a radical change of approach to teaching in schools and universities worldwide and the BES is no exception. Consequently we have had to resort to delivering all classes online in order to secure the health and safety of our students and their families.... See more

Dear Students, Parents and Members of Staff,
On behalf of the Board, I would like to use the commencement of the academic year 2020/2021 to wish you all a successful, safe and happy year. We are all aware that it is going to be a demanding time for teachers, students and parents: teaching will continue to be online for the present and not in the comfort of our small community premises. Our common aim, as on several occasions in the history of our school, is to work together to make the best of adverse conditions and make this another highly successful academic year. We have done it in the past and we will do it again!
On behalf of the Board, I want to assure you that we will do our very best to keep the school operational in the most efficient way in this ‘new normal’ world we must all learn to come to terms with.
Together we will remain safe and healthy.
Chairman of the Board
