Avenor College is a bilingual international school with double accreditation, both in the Romanian system and in the British system. We have been accredited by the Romanian Ministry of Education through ARACIP 12 years ago, and in the 2018-2019 academic year we received the confirmation that we also meet the British School Overseas (BSO) standards, representing the Department of Education (DfE) in the UK.

The BSO accreditation was for us the confirmation that our students have the best guidance in their individual learning journey. We celebrated with the whole community this success – obtaining the qualification GOOD with OUTSTANDING features from the inspectors.

Following the inspection in November 2018, Avenor College received the BSO accreditation and the overall judgment for our school was „GOOD with some OUTSTANDING features”. British School Overseas represents the Gold standards in education and this accreditation certifies that our children are receiving an education that is at least as good as the education found in leading British independent school in UK or internationally. Students are interested in their work and apply intellectual, physical and creative effort. They develop skills and an ability to think and learn for themselves.

Social development is outstanding. Students are friendly and respectful. Relationships between teaching staff and students are a particular strength of the school.

Teachers demonstrate a good understanding of their students’ needs, creating an environment with high levels of enjoyment and independence.

Parents are highly supportive of the school and value the opportunities it provides for their children. Students, parents and staff are highly committed to the school. The school is well on its way to achieving its mission, ‘co-creating the best future’.
