The British School of Monaco is committed to developing accreditations that support the school in being a world-class learning institution.
The British School of Monaco offers an education programme based on the National Curriculum for England with adaptations which take into account the cultural context of the school. The National Curriculum for England provides a range of learning outcomes and expectations that are developmental and age related. The teachers plan lessons that are aligned to these outcomes, seeking to ensure all children are working at, or above, their expected level. Students are assessed against the standards aligned to their age.
Accreditation is a way of benchmarking the school against other world-class schools. The British School of Monaco is accredited by both Pearson/Edexcel and Cambridge.
Accreditation in the UK education system is incredibly rigorous and highly regulated; to be an accreditation organisation is very demanding. Edexcel and Cambridge are two of the five organisations accredited by the UK government to offer GCSEs and A Levels in UK schools.
International British curriculum schools across the world are usually accredited by either Pearson or Cambridge, or sometimes they will be accredited by both. In order to ensure the British School of Monaco provides the range and depth of learning we desire for our students, we have chosen to be accredited by both Pearson and Cambridge.
Both Cambridge and Pearson courses are renowned for developing vital educational skills, including recall of knowledge, oral skills, problem solving, initiative team work and investigative skills. They offer flexible courses of study that give candidates the freedom to choose subjects that are right for them, while providing them with a broad knowledge base and lifelong skills.
