One year countdown to opening BST's new Primary School

(1 September 2022) Today marks the beginning of a one-year countdown (subject to approval) to the opening of The British School in Tokyo’s new Primary campus (BST), located in Toranomon-Azabudai, Tokyo.


The new campus will open in September 2023. It will cater for the needs of children from Nursery (3 years old) to Year 6 (11 years old), and for the first time in BST’s distinguished history, unite Primary children from BST’s current Showa and Shibuya campuses.

As the only international school located in the new prestigious development, BST is an honoured partner in the Mori Building Corporation’’s regeneration of Toranomon Azabudai - the biggest residential, commercial and educational project in central Tokyo for more than a generation.

The new campus, designed by world-famous architects Thomas Heatherwick Studios, will include 7 floors above the ground (including a roof garden) and one subterranean floor, featuring an indoor swimming pool, two libraries, an art studio, a Discovery Centre for Science/Technology/Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) learning, a sports hall and two sports pitches.

The new Primary campus is also only a short distance from BST’s Secondary School site located at Showa Women’s University, which is part of a rapidly expanding educational hub in Sangenjaya.

BST provides a broad and balanced curriculum for students aged 3 to 18, complemented by over 130 extracurricular activities and clubs catering to interests in sport, art, music, languages and other creative areas such as cooking, gardening, coding and photography.

The School’s experienced educators are highly trained professionals who seek to ensure all students are supported to fulfil their potential both in and beyond the classroom. Extensive facilities at these central Tokyo campuses enhance the students' experience and help to ensure each student thrives and develops their own unique talents.

Paul Tough, Principal of The British School in Tokyo, said:

Without question, the new central Tokyo campus positions BST at the forefront of Primary education in Japan and globally. In our enviable position at the heart of one of the world’s leading cities, the state-of-the-art facilities will maximise innovative learning and extensive curricular and cocurricular opportunities for all students.

In September 2023, the new campus will open. It will be located at the heart of central Tokyo and surrounded by a verdant urban oasis of some 24,000m² of green space. Within a few minutes walk, students and parents will reach either Roppongi Itchome Station or Kamiyacho Station easily. The Toranomon-Azabudai area is also close to major office buildings, various shops and restaurants, and many residential buildings.
