BIST EDT Inspection Report

During November 2019, a team of three Education Development Trust (EDT) inspectors from the UK visited Bromsgrove International School Thailand (BIST) to undertake an International Schools Quality Mark (ISQM) inspection. BIST is recognised as having met the required standards for accreditation. The school has been awarded the Education Development Trust International School Quality Mark at Silver level. The inspection team had access to a wide range of information about the school prior to the inspection. Over three days, the team visited 44 lessons, observing teachers in a wide range of subjects. Inspectors held 28 meetings to interview senior leaders, heads of faculty, the head of learning support, other middle leaders and staff, students, parents and governing body members. Inspectors also observed break times, assemblies and other aspects of the school’s work. The team scrutinised students’ work, including that completed electronically. They also looked at school documents including: the school’s self-review document (SRD), development plans, policies, assessment systems, data analyses, behaviour incidents, complaints and safeguarding procedures. They observed the school at work and followed up on any issues raised. Some of the feedback comments for each standard are shown below.
