ISF Tervuren has been formally accredited by the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) since July 2008 and is a member of the Association of British Schools Overseas since 2013.
COBIS is a Membership Association of British International Schools and is affiliated to the Independent Schools Council (ISC) in the United Kingdom. It is able to accredit British Schools Overseas, anywhere in the World.
To be recognised by the UK Department for Education (DfE), a British school overseas (BSO) must have an inspection report which shows that their performance against all the BSO standards is at least satisfactory. This reflects the standards required for continuing registration as a school in England. Following a successful BSO inspection, schools are allocated a unique reference number on the UK’s national school reference system, Edubase. Following a successful inspection by one of the DfE approved inspectorates, COBIS is able to confer formal recognition on its accredited schools worldwide.
