Application for School Membership

BSME is the largest British international school 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 three tiers of membership to schools which meet the following criteria:

  • The school must be mainly English medium.

  • The curriculum must be based on significant aspects of the UK National Curriculum and/or prepare students for DfE recognised examinations such as Key Stage SATs (UK), GCSE, iGCSE, GCE AS/A2 levels and/or IB.

  • All teachers must be legally employed and suitably qualified.

  • The school must be licensed and/or registered with the Ministry of Education in the host country.

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 found here or can be discussed with our CEO, Olivia Roth.

If you are a school working towards the criteria or wish to inquire about any element of membership, please email membership@bsme.org.uk or call +973 17798404. Lisa Kirkley, BSME Membership Coordinator, will be pleased to support you.
