World Heritage

Ankara sits at the crossroads of West and East, ancient and modern. It is a city rich in heritage with all the vibrancy of a dynamic, international community.

We pride ourselves that we are not just in Ankara but of it. Many of our pupils now come from the local community, prizing the high standards of education and international outlook that characterises BESA. Our staff also includes Turkish nationals while many who came from overseas have settled with Turkish families of their own.

With Turkish language lessons, numerous field trips and a regular programme of visiting speakers we make full use of our unique and privileged location.
