The British International School Moscow featured in official commemorative album for the Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration at Windsor.

In 2016, Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, who is also Head of State of 15 other Commonwealth realms, will mark her 90th birthday, and the British International School Moscow will be one of the organisations featured in the official commemorative publication for The Queen’s Birthday Celebration at Windsor Castle.


As part of these celebrations, publisher St. James’s House has produced an official commemorative album for the event – the only publication sanctioned and endorsed by the organizers.


In addition to celebrating the life and reign of the Queen, the publication showcases a selection of organizations in the UK and Commonwealth, or with strong ties to Britain. These organisations are drawn from educational, cultural, social, technological and business spheres, and include Royal Charter holders, Royal Warrant holders and recipients of the Queen’s Awards. Collectively, they provide insights into the Commonwealth today and into the UK’s role in the wider world.

“The British International School Moscow is a leading international educational institution and we were approached by publisher St James’s House with an invitation to appear in the event’s official commemorative album,” says Denis Kelly, Academic Director of the British International School. “ We were invited based on our good editorial fit for the project, and it’s a great honour to be part of this historic celebration.”


Over the last 22 years The British International School Moscow has successfully delivered a full range of educational services through the provision of a first class education specifically designed to parallel the best traditions of the British school system. Students who attend the school have the opportunity to gain a first class education which will enable them to pursue their academic careers in higher level academic institutions in the United Kingdom, Commonwealth countries and many other parts of the world.

Asked about the participation of the British International School Moscow, Richard Freed of St. James’s House says: “ As the official publisher for the Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration, we have been entrusted with telling the Queen’s story. We were also tasked with finding suitable editorial partners for the book, and we were delighted when the British International School Moscow agreed to help us mark this important milestone.”
