About The Partner Schools Global Network (PSGN)

The Partner Schools Global Network (PSGN) is the community of schools that offer a UK curriculum leading to exams such as the O level, IGCSE and A level, administered in cooperation with the British Council. These schools are located across North and Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, the Middle East beyond. 

Our aim is to offer high-quality products and services that support our leaders, teachers, learners and parents. We are also able to support Ministries of Education with reform and improvement programmes. 

For our teachers, our support includes a Quality Assurance self-assessment tool and an excellent suite of in-service teacher-training workshops for both primary and secondary teachers. For learners, we offer the PSGN ‘Your World’ global competition as well as access to the latest online educational support. 

And, for school leaders, we offer leadership training as well as excellent networking opportunities. 

 Watch this video in which Martin Lowder, our UK qualifications expert, talks a bit more about the network.

In addition, we offer the several programmes and conferences, that can be seen below.

Welcome to the Third Your World competition.

This year’s theme is “Natural Environment”. Contestants have submitted a short video outlining a social action project with reference to the local community and environment around them. That community could be their country, town or city, school or a group of people. The videos outline who the community is that is affected and how the issue can be resolved for the long term benefit of the community and environment.

Candidates worked in groups of five, each contestant between the ages of 14 and 17, producing a video no more than three minutes long with a phone or tablet.

The winners will be flown to London with their teacher to experience the culture of the UK!
