Thank you for your interest in The Benghazi European School and I trust that in the following pages on this website you will find all the relevant information you need. As you will discover, our School is a long-established one with a reputation for giving a well-rounded education and a way of life that inspires confidence and a mature independence in our pupils.
At The Benghazi European School we offer them a comprehensive and progressive curriculum and a staff dedicated to their personal welfare, development, motivation and happiness so that they reach their true potential”.
Welcome from the School Director
Dear Parents and Students,
Our Online Distant Learning Programme has been running very successfully over the past week; I am able to report that 90% of our students have participated. They have clearly enjoyed this new method of interacting with their teachers and with each other.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Students, who show clear dedication to their studies, Parents who have provided their children with the necessary tools to enable them to participate in this new method of learning, and last, but not least, our Teachers, who took on the challenge of preparing themselves to be able to deliver their classes using new these methods. Effectively, teachers are giving many more hours to their students than they would have had to, using the traditional method of the school classroom. Lastly, I would like to thank the BES Crisis Management Team. I would like to express a very special thanks to Mr. Walid and Mr. Jamal, for the tremendous amount of work and effort they have dedicated to ensuring that the platform works efficiently for both students and staff.
As you are all aware, our Online Distant Learning Teaching will continue to the first day of Aed El-Aftar. The End of Year exams will take place after the celebrations. Parents should contact Mr. Zayed Mahmoud, on 0925479060, to show their continued support to the school.
Stay Safe, Stay Home, Be Happy

Dear Students, Parents and Members of Staff,
Thank you for your continued loyalty and trust in these difficult and uncertain times. The COVID-19 pandemic has now been confirmed in Libya. Our thoughts go out to anyone who has been affected. I hope that you, your family, friends and colleagues are well and are taking all the necessary precautions to keep safe.
Our commitment and responsibility towards our students have never been stronger, as we face what are unprecedented times. We are continuously monitoring the ever-changing circumstances and working very hard to adapt to the recent developments and how to best safeguard the academic year for your child.
Following the decision and decrees by the Government and the Health Authorities, we are staying away from the school premises but our online platform will be soon established and teaching will go on. We are also doing our utmost to disinfect the building and establish the approved conditions for our exams to be able to go ahead when the time permits.
On our website www.bes-edu.org,
as well as in our https://www.facebook.com/BenghaziEuropeanSchool there is a daily update with all the information you need to know regarding your school. Our School Director will soon update you as to how we shall proceed and teachers will be at your disposal after the Spring Break as of April 1st – 2020.
Thank you again for trusting the education of your child to BES. Stay safe, Stay in and thank you for your cooperation.
Chairman of the Board
We would like to invite you to attend a Parent-Teacher meeting on Saturday April 06, 2019, from 10:00 AM to 01:30 PM.
This is an opportunity for you to know about the academic and social well-being of your child/children and to clarify any related questions or concerns about his/her grades you or we may have.
We are all going through very critical times such as we have not experienced before. We would like to assure you that the Management of the BES is meeting on a daily basis to work on contingency measures to secure the academic programme of our students. We are working closely with the Ministry of Education and also following the safety guidelines of the World health Organisation.
We want to guarantee you, as we did during the crisis of 2011 and 2015, that your child's/children's academic programmes for 2019-2020 will be completed successfully. The Edexcel external examinations will go ahead at the published times, unless we are instructed otherwise from EDEXCEL.
We will keep you informed of any future developments.
