Board of Governors



The British School in Baku is a member of COBIS( Council of British International Schools) and CIS (Council of International Schools). It is also accredited by QCA (Qualification and Curriculum Authority), Cambridge International Examinations and Edexcel. This gives our students the opportunity to sit public examinations from England. These provide students with the qualifications needed to enter universities both in the UK and throughout the world.

Excellent teachers are the key to delivering this curriculum. The majority of our examination subjects are taught by expatriate teachers from the UK, and this number increases every year.In addition Azeri citizens study for their own certificate, and the school is licensed by the Ministry of Education of the Azerbaijan Republic.

BSB is a school of quality, modeling the best international schools in the world. Please do come to see for yourself how we provide this opportunity for our students.
