  • If a pupil is named, no image of that pupil will be shown;
    Whenever a photograph is included that shows a pupil, no name will be displayed.
  • The observance of the above points ensures that visitors to the BSV website cannot correlate images of pupils to their names.

The British School of Vilnius adheres to a policy of seeking parents’/guardians’ permission before utilising and images which include pupils on our website.

No private information about pupils is published on this website such as surnames or contact details.
