Are you looking for a great short-term school
for your children in Budapest?

Are you coming to Budapest for a month or more? Bringing your children? Yay!

So imagine a school that is designed to welcome new students, and teaches how to say "good goodbyes" when they leave. Imagine learning that is project-based, so you don't have to worry about where your children are in the "curriculum" at this moment. Imagine a diverse community where students are encouraged to dream big and learn to bring their dreams to reality. Picture a beautiful learning environment in nature, yet in the city, so children can take advantage of the best Budapest has to offer.

REAL School was founded by a climate-change entrepreneur and a filmmaker. Mix these two up, and you might start to get a feel for why this school is really something different.

REAL School is a British-accredited school, where learning is personal, so it is easy to join throughout the year. A limited number of spaces are available for film industry children. All learning and teaching is in English, but proficiency is only required above 11.

We have an international team of educators, and an innovative yet straightforward schedule:


A time dedicated to building relationships and social-emotional engagement through games, songs, rituals and talking.


Working through maths, building stronger writing skills, discussing latest readings, and getting exposed to key concepts of science.


Real life project work for 21st century skills development, following consistent design processes with a real impact, while exposing children to nature, people and cultures.


Learning happens everywhere. So each week we spend a day out in nature or in the city, exploring and getting our hands dirty.


Opportunity to continue project work, or join a language class, arts and music courses, game clubs or sports.

Minimum enrolment for film industry professionals is only one term - please see our 2021/22 calendar. Please consult our admissions page for the process of joining REAL School.

Before you visit REAL School to meet our cast and crew, and to stay for a taster day, we would like to offer a gentle warning: Beware - your children might want to stay!
