International Membership

International membership is open to Heads of independent schools overseas. HMC has 60 international members spread across Africa, Asia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia & New Zealand, Europe, Middle East, Central & South America and Canada.

"The country benefits hugely from the strength of its independent schools, both here in Britain and overseas. British Schools Overseas play a very important part in this and many of the best model themselves on HMC schools at home. The values of an outstanding liberal education of the kind developed in British independent schools has worldwide appeal."

Dr Christoper Ray, former Chairman of HMC

International member schools must meet the same high standards as full members. There is a separate International Division that meets at the Annual Conference and international members are represented on the main HMC Committee and key sub-committees.

All our international members and their schools share the same educational values and commitment to qualityinnovation and excellence in education, providing reassurance to parents and pupils abroad that they are choosing the very best education for their child.
