What are British schools overseas?
Independent schools overseas (sometimes called international schools) describing themselves as ‘British’ do not receive any formal approval or recognition from the British Government at the present time. Parents may be unsure about the standards and quality of education offered in comparison with standards in Britain. The Department for Education has put in place a voluntary scheme for the inspection of British schools overseas, whereby schools are inspected against a common set of standards that British schools overseas can choose to adopt.
