Founded in 1965, ECIS (the Educational Collaborative for International Schools) is a non-profit global membership organisation that provides professional learning, research, advocacy, and grants and awards for the benefit of its members.
Our members comprise:
  • Early stage through to mature international and internationally-minded schools
  • Higher education institutions
  • Commercial organisations that support education through products and services
  • Individuals who are internationally-minded in outlook and practice.

A charity registered in England and Wales, we are headquartered in London.

Our mission is to transform lives through international education.

We are proud to include in our membership international and internationally-minded schools spanning the world, teaching multiple curricula in English and in multiple languages.We embrace this diversity, and are the only international schools membership organisation that has a global focus and welcomes schools and teachers using a wide range of curricula, examinations, and languages.

To show our commitment to multilingualism, we opened ECIS China in late 2017, in partnership with a leading university in Beijing, serving the internationally-minded primary and secondary education sector in China. We do business in Mandarin and English. We are actively looking to engage in other languages as well, throughout the world.
