The Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA) has announced a new partnership with BAISIS (British Association of Independent Schools with International Students). The BSA and BAISIS will work together to promote the needs of international students studying in the UK.
BAISIS General Secretary Caroline Nixon said of the new partnership: “I am delighted our partnership will allow both BAISIS and BSA to support more teachers and other staff looking to understand better the needs of international students”.
Robin Fletcher, Chief Executive of the BSA said: “BSA and our members are passionate about delivering the best quality pastoral care for more than 75,000 boarders at over 500 schools in the UK, including around 30,000 overseas students. Our partnership with BAISIS will enable our schools to better support international students in our schools.”
London-based BSA was founded in 1965 and represents over 600 boarding schools across the world through professional development, government relations, communications, media, publications, conferences and events. The Boarding Schools' Association (BSA) champions boarding excellence and delivers boarding support worldwide.
BAISIS was founded in 1997 and aims to prepare international students academically, pastorally, and culturally for successful integration into the British boarding school environment. This is primarily achieved through their formal, certified training and development courses for teachers and managers interested in giving their international students the very best chance of academic success.
