School Summary
National, UK, curricula.
140 students, 3-11 yrs.

The British Embassy Study Group was founded in 1959 to provide a primary school education for the staff of the Embassy in Ankara. Since that time the school has grown and changed, so that there are pupils from 35 nationalities in enlarged and modernised buildings. Emphasis is placed on individual encouragement, achievement and mutual respect.

The British Embassy Study Group is a private, non-profit making school, which serves the diplomatic and business community. It is governed by a Board of Governors with a Chairman appointed by the British Ambassador.

A British-style education is offered through the medium of the English National Curriculum at the British Embassy Study Group, with English as the medium of instruction. Consideration is given to the setting in Turkey, both within the mainstream subjects and through the teaching of basic Turkish language and culture. The SAT tests are given to all age groups from Year 2, and the Study Group consistently achieves performance within the top 3% of schools in the United Kingdom.

Children are welcome from age 3 to 11, with the youngest children attending for half a day. Those children who are not native speakers are given interviews, with an additional English test for entry to Years 3 to 6. Application should be made as early as possible. Many staff have already taught in overseas schools and all are aware of the needs of an international community. Both the Literacy and Numeracy strategies have recently been introduced. The school’s approach to the humanities and physical education includes a range of residential and day trips, which are organized throughout Key Stage 2. The country provides many unique resources.

The British Embassy Study Group has extensive grounds, which include a large area of natural woodland and an all-weather pitch. Internal facilities include a large library, art and technology rooms and a gymnasium.

A full programme of after-school clubs is provided at the British Embassy Study Group, staffed by both teachers and parents. The school day is from 08:40 until 15:00, with the Nursery finishing at 11:45. The school year is from the end of August until the end of June, with holidays for Christmas and Easter, and at half terms.
