BSME is the largest British international schools membership organisation in the region. The membership benefits are focused on ensuring that schools feel supported in their relentless pursuit of excellence. We therefore offer two tiers of membership to schools which meet the following criteria:
Offers an essentially British style education
The primary language of instruction and operating language of the School is English
The curriculum must be based on significant aspects of the National Curriculum for England and Wales and/or prepare students for DfE recognised examinations such as Key Stage SATs (UK), GCSE, iGCSE or GCE AS/A2 levels or IB.
All teaching staff, including the Head, must suitably qualified and legally employed.
If you meet these criteria, please complete the Membership Application Form. Following your submission, BSME will be in touch with you to outline the membership process. Upon successful completion of the membership process, your school will be a Member School. Within two years of becoming a Member School, your school must undertake an accreditation; you will then be awarded Accredited Member status. Further details about accreditation can be discussed with Olivia Roth, Chief Operating Officer for BSME.
If you are a school working towards the criteria or wish to enquire about any element of membership, please contact our Business Manager, Emma Wales.
