International School Award

British Council International School Award

The British Council international School Award (ISA) is a benchmarking scheme that accredits schools having an outstanding level of support for

  1. Nurturing global citizenship in young people.
  2. Enriching teaching- It is widely accepted that the traditional chalk and talk model of content oriented teaching alone cannot adequately prepare young people for the future.
  3. ISA is a leadership challenge that fosters teambuilding, innovation and project management.

We have enrolled for the International School Award this year 2015-’16 with the following International Policy.

QMIS’ International Policy


  • To educate the leaders of tomorrow who will change the way the world lives, learns and works.
  • To edify the child to face the challenges of today and take on the role of an active and responsible citizen.


  • To widen the child's learning exposure more and beyond.
  • To give a multi dimensional experience.
  • To be internationally recognized for our commitment to education .
  • ISA allows learning to end on a positive note with the head teacher and the ISA team receiving individual certificates from the British Council when the school achieves the award. Achieving the award is not the end of the journey. The schools and teachers involved in ISA may remain with the British Council programmes beyond the assessment year.
