In February we had a British Schools Overseas (BSO) inspection. This inspection report follows the English Department for Education (DfE) Schedule for the inspection of British schools overseas. The inspection was carried out by the CfBT Education Trust which is a body approved by the British Government for the purpose of inspecting schools in England and overseas and quality assured by the Office for standards in Education (Ofsted). We are delighted with the outcomes of this inspection which overwhelmingly identifies DIS as an outstanding school in nearly all areas. Please read our inspection report that we are very proud of.
