The BSN was observed by the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) in March 2024 and the Independent School Inspectorate from the UK in March 2019. It also has a number of official policies and procedures which are applicable to all school sites.

COBIS Accreditation

We are delighted to share that the BSN has been successful in its Accreditation by the Council of British International Schools (COBIS). The school has met all five standards for Compliance and four standards for Accreditation, reflecting its commitment to providing an exceptional educational experience. Additionally, the BSN has been awarded the prestigious Beacon Status for excellence in student welfare.

Being awarded Beacon School Status for excellence in student welfare is a significant point of pride. As a school, nothing trumps the wellbeing of our students.

Inspection Reports

Having received the final 2019 report from the inspectors, we are delighted to share that the BSN has met all the standards of the inspection.

The leadership and management of the school... demonstrate good skills and knowledge and fulfil their responsibilities so that the BSO standards are met consistently.

This process was different from the 2015 inspection, in that schools are now given a “pass or fail” judgement rather than a more detailed reflection on the quality of learning.

School Policies

All our policies are available to parents at the BSN on the password-protected Intranet site.
