An Outstanding BSO Education

The Aquila School is very proud to announce that it has been rated as Outstanding by British School Overseas (BSO) across all areas of assessment. To be graded as Outstanding this early on in a school’s operation is very rare, if not unheard of.

“Our team work tirelessly to ensure that every child makes as much progress as possible and is genuinely empowered to make decisions about their own learning. We are delighted that – within our first year of operation – we have been given the very highest rating possible from British School Overseas. Their recognition of the relevance of our engaging curriculum and commitment to progress, while ensuring that children are safe and happy, are a fitting testament to the excellent work of our committed and talented staff. Visitors to our school often comment on the happy community atmosphere, saying that the school is welcoming and has an established feel, and it is fantastic that the inspection team have also recognised this.” Wayne Howsen, Principal.


Our creative curriculum combines science, maths, technology and the arts as part of a broader enquiry-based curriculum, to encourage dialogue, problem-solving and critical thinking.
