Welcome from Colin Bell, COBIS CEO

Dear Colleague,

It was a huge pleasure to welcome colleagues from over 120 schools in more than 55 countries to London for the COBIS Annual Conference last month. This year’s Conference was our largest yet with so many great speakers, seminars and exhibitors, as well as plenty of time to share knowledge with colleagues in the COBIS network. If you were unable to join us this year, we hope to welcome you at a COBIS event in the near future. All the dates for our 2015/16 Conferences were announced at the Annual Conference and are listed below.

One of my personal highlights of the Conference was watching the COBIS on Camera film at the COBIS Annual Dinner on the Monday night. All throughout the Conference, students from 2 COBIS member schools – Halcyon London International School and Transylvania College – were learning how to capture professional, creative footage under the watchful guidance of colleagues at Eye for Business. The result was an outstanding film which captured the essence, not only of the Conference, but of the COBIS network, and the passion and energy within it. If you have not yet watched the film, you will find the link below – it’s well worth a watch! A huge thank you to those students who took part, and to Eye for Business for helping teach them skills for life.

Immediately after the Conference I was delighted to join colleagues from 32 schools for the COBIS Primary and Secondary Games at the Olympic Stadium in Athens. The COBIS Games is always a highlight of the COBIS calendar and this year’s Games were no exception. Outstanding performances were witnessed by all involved with many students gaining personal best performances on the world class facilities. Congratulations to everyone who took part, particularly our winners St Saviour's School, Ikoyi, Lagos, Nigeria in the Primary Games and Dubai College in the Secondary Games. A huge thank you to St Catherine’s British School, Athens who did a formidable job in organising and hosting the COBIS Games 2015 and a particular thank you to Janet Theoharakis for a master class in organisation!

During the same weekend, colleagues were heading to King's College: The British School of Alicante for the Primary Invitation Cup. After two full days of sporting triumphs, King’s College Madrid took the Gold medal, followed by St. George’s International School, Luxembourg with the Silver Medal and Newton College, Elche, Spain taking the Bronze Medal. A week later, the Secondary Invitation Cup took place at Park Lane International School, Prague with many more outstanding performances by students from competing schools. Congratulations to all students who took part in these events and thank you to the staff who made these events possible.

Finally, it is my pleasure to confirm that all COBIS member schools have now complied with the mandatory Child Protection and Safer Recruitment requirements for COBIS membership. This underlines the COBIS commitment to safeguarding the pupils in our care and is positive news as we work collectively to reduce risk to children and young people. 

Kind regards,

Colin Bell

      The 34th COBIS Annual Conference - Measuring Success: Wellbeing, Resilience, Education and Leadership in British Schools Overseas - took place at the Park Plaza Victoria, London on 9-11 May 2015. The conference was the largest yet with more than 500 delegates, exhibitors, speakers and guests attending over the course of the three days. Representatives from over 120 schools in more than 55 countries took part in a range of plenary sessions, seminars and social activities which enabled extensive networking opportunities. 

      The Conference opened with an inspirational session by conductor Dominic Peckham who reminded delegates about the power and inclusiveness of song. The Conference also featured keynotes from Baroness Sue Campbell, Ben Walden and Professor Guy Claxton as well as sessions which capitalised on the expertise in the global COBIS network. COBIS Spark, where members gave short presentations about innovative practice in their schools, was particularly successful. 

      Delegates also enjoyed several social activities and networking receptions, including the opening dinner which was held at ZSL London Zoo. The Conference also hosted the COBIS Young Scientist Film Awards where the worthy student winners of this year's awards were announced by Andrew Hanson from the National Physical Laboratory. 

      Throughout the Conference, students from Halcyon London International School and Transylvania College - The Cambridge International School in Cluj were catching all the events on camera as part of the COBIS on Camera film project. COBIS is grateful to Eye for Business who worked with our students to teach them about professional filming and editing. The final film was presented to delegates at the COBIS Annual Dinner on Monday night and can be viewed here

      COBIS and several COBIS schools have featured in recent articles about a diverse range of topics.

      Nick Morrison from The Telegraph spoke to several COBIS schools and provided an insightful perspective on the benefits of international education, from students’ adaptability gained through living in multi-cultural communities, to the advantage of parents having their children close by as opposed to boarding in the UK. He reiterated how quality assurance in COBIS member schools enables parents to be confident of the high standard of their children’s education. To read the full report, please click here.

      Ann Mroz from the TES writes on the extra strain on teacher supply in the UK, and the effect that the growth of British Schools abroad is having. She says that COBIS estimate “150,000 extra teachers will be required in these institutions over the next 10 years, as well as some 1,200 headteachers.” To read the full article, please click here.

      Anne Keeling from TIC Recruitment reported on the COBIS Annual Conference 2015 and highlighted the commitment of COBIS schools to protect their students through mandatory Safeguarding and Child Protection training.
