The British School Caracas Venezuela
The British School Caracas was opened in 1950 at the Old Hacienda Farmhouse in Las Mercedes (now the Vera Cruz Supermarket) on 15th of September with 37 pupils and four teachers. Eileen Hinks (later Eileen Mendt) was appointed Headmistress. The British School Caracas is situated in Altamira, Caracas, just below the Avila National Park. It occupies a prime location overlooking central Caracas. We have both purpose-built buildings and houses converted for office and classroom use. Below is a video to give you an idea of what our campus is like.
