The British School Quito was founded in 1995 under the auspices of the British Embassy and the British Council. The Foundation is chaired by HM Ambassador and the board includes prominent Ecuadorian and British professionals. Sixty percent of the student body is Ecuadorian. The international contingent includes students from Europe (including UK), Canada and USA. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, with considerable emphasis on values, courtesy and industry

Most class and subject teachers are qualified in the UK. There is normally a maximum class size of 20. The programme follows the English National Curriculum, leading to the IB Diploma. All students have the opportunity to become completely bilingual. The co-curricular programme includes sports, music, theatre and community service. Ecuador provides rich opportunities for fieldwork, visits and excursions. BSQ follows the three-term pattern of the British school year, with classes beginning in early September and concluding at the end of June. The school offers a wide variety of extra curricular activities including the International Youth Award (Duke of Edinburgh) Scheme. BSQ is located in a pleasant Andean valley within easy reach of central Quito. There are well-equipped science and computer laboratories. Sports facilities include a large heated swimming pool, a junior football pitch together with tennis, basketball and volleyball courts

Enrolment is based upon previous schooling record, testing in English and interview.
