Posted 21/07/2016 02:54PM

The Department for Education (DfE) has today, Thursday 21 July, responded to the letter from COBIS Chairman Trevor Rowell (dated 30 June) in which he highlighted a number of concerns for International British Schools overseas in the wake of Britain's vote to leave the EU.

The response, from the Communications Division of the Department for Education, can be read in full at this link.

As you will know, a new Secretary of State for Education, Justine Greening MP, was appointed recently. Trevor Rowell has today, Thursday 21 July, sent a fresh response addressed to the new Secretary of State for Education, in which he urges the government to seriously consider the concerns outlined by COBIS in the original letter when negotiating the terms of Brexit and what a Brexit may mean for students and staff in International British Schools overseas.

We will be sure to keep you updated on any further correspondence with the DfE on this important matter.
