The British School of Houston, located in northwest Houston in close proximity to Route 290 and I-610, opened in September 2000. The school is a private co-educational day school currently catering for children aged 3 to 16. It follows the English National Curriculum for Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4 and there are plans to extend into a full senior programme in the near future. GCSE program will be followed from year 10 and the first exams are to be taken in 2005. French is taught to children from the Nursery. The British School of Houston is a sister school to the British School of Washington, which opened in 1998.

The British School of Houston is housed in a large modern building on an extensive campus, and includes three playing fields, two gymnasiums, dance studio, science, art, music and computer suites and a large auditorium.

Classes run from mid-September to mid-July from 08:45 to 15:30 and follow a UK vacation pattern. Teachers run extra-curricular activities. Care is available before school for children from 08.00. Please contact the school for information about transport.

Classroom teachers at British School of Houston are UK-trained and National Curriculum experienced graduates. Some specialist teachers, eg French and music, may be locally recruited, as are classroom assistants. Core textbooks, library books and work schemes are imported from the UK. The school tests at the end of Key Stages using the UK Statutory Assessment Tests and all children receive a baseline assessment upon entry. Children from Year 3 are tested regularly with other UK standardised tests so the parents may make comparisons of their child's potential and achievement against national norms. School inspections are conducted using qualified inspectors from the UK. There is a mandatory school uniform.

The day-to-day operation of the British School of Houston is managed by the head teacher, in consultation with the UK-based Executive Board and the Advisory Board (drawn from the local, international and parental communities).

The British School of Houston has an open admissions programme with year-round enrolment, subject to availability of places, and is non-selective but requires reports from previous schools and an interview. Children with limited English may only be admitted to the early years and there is no special needs provision.
