The independent British Council The British Council is one of the United Kingdom's cultural relations organisations and which specialises in educational opportunities. It is a non-departmental public body and is registered as a charity in England.  for School environments (BCSe) says a school's physical environment is as important as its teaching and learning, the extracurricular activities on offer and its management and leadership.

As parents begin looking at prospective schools ahead of next September September: see month. , the BCSe has produced a new booklet giving handy tips on what to look out for and questions to ask.
