“The concept and practice of inclusive education have gained importance in recent years. Internationally, the term is increasingly understood more broadly as a reform that supports and welcomes diversity amongst all learners. Inclusive education is not a marginal issue, but is central to the achievement of high-quality education for all learners and the development of more inclusive societies. Inclusive education is essential to achieve social equity and is a constituent element of lifelong learning.”

Applying To Reach British School
Each application is considered individually. Reach British School has an open admissions policy, and the admissions assessment will consider ability to access the curriculum through language, behaviour among peers, and additional learning needs. These are placement tests to give an indication of performance level and language ability, and are not academic entrance tests. They support our placement of students in a way that ensures classes are diverse across gender, language, national status, and additional learning needs.
