After our latest inspection by Penta International British School of Sofia meets all the standards for British School Overseas. ‘The school offers a high-quality of British education and the quality of education fully meets the requirements of the BSO Framework with many aspects being outstanding’, says the official report after the third BSO inspection in our school.

Penta International is one of the leading independent providers of training, consultancy and inspection services in the United Kingdom and overseas. This inspectorate specialises in inspecting schools overseas, including British Schools Overseas and is accredited by the Department for Education (DfO). The inspection lasted 3 days during that time the inspectors made a comprehensive inspection with lesson observations, data analysis and discussions with groups of students, parents and staff.

The inspection covers the key areas of quality of the curriculum; qulity of teaching and learning; the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of the pupils; their welfare, health and safety, the school’s premises, etc. An essential part of the inspection is considering the extent to which the British character of the school is evident in its ethos, curriculum, teaching, care for pupils’ achievements.

With these regular inspections Penta International overlooks the overall effectiveness of the school, the standards of education and the compatibility with independent schools in the UK and around the world.

We had the honour to be inspected by the Managing Director of Penta International Dr Mark Evans personally and his colleagues Mr Ryan Reaney and Ms Charlene Carrett.
