Delight at our recent inspection outcome

As a school, we are delighted to announce that we have had another very successful British Schools Overseas (BSO) inspection.   The inspectors were extremely positive about the school and we are very pleased that the hard work and success of students, parents, staff and governors have been recognised.

The inspection took place on the 27th to the 29th January 2019 and you can see a copy of the full report by clicking on the link below.

As an accredited British Schools Overseas, our school is inspected every three years to ensure that we meet the standards required by the UK Department for Education and to produce a report to inform parents about how the standards at the BSA compare to the standards that apply to independent schools in England.  

The report indicates that we meet all the standards for British Schools Overseas and that the British School Alexandria is a good school with many outstanding features.
