ISC Associations

How to become a member of an Independent Schools Council Association

Schools in the ISI inspection remit are members of one or more of the seven Associations:

  • Association of Governing Bodies of Independent Schools (AGBIS)
  • The Girls' Schools Association (GSA)
  • Headmasters' & Headmistresses' Conference (HMC)
  • Independent Association of Prep Schools (IAPS)
  • Independent Schools Association (ISA)
  • Independent Schools' Bursars Association (ISBA)
  • The Society of Heads


ISC does not offer individual membership to schools: all membership enquiries should be addressed to one of the Associations listed above.
