What is the Cobis Accreditation?
“The Council of British International Schools (COBIS) is a membership association that represents more than 450 schools and organisations, globally.”
Being a COBIS school implies that BIST operates within specific guidelines of ethical practice and good governance reflective of the high standards and ethos that only the very best British international schools have the knowledge and capacity to meet. The high standards required are maintained by regular inspections and communication with COBIS.
