Montgomery Bell International Symposium

    • Montgomery Bell International Symposium

"I believe we cannot overestimate the potential value of this international colloquy and the ensuing friendship and interaction that can develop in such an intimate but far reaching setting for discussion, debate, and understanding."
-- Mr. Brad Gioia (retired, Montgomery Bell Academy), 2011
"Our network of ten schools around the world will in some way play its part... as year‐on‐year we continue to meet to seek mutual understanding and the formation of a common mind. Long may our meetings continue!"
-- Dr. Ralph Townsend (retired, Winchester College), 2010
Symposia Background
MBA is parent of an international group of schools known as the Montgomery Bell International Symposium (MBIS), details of which can be found here.
At an agreed point in the academic year one of the nine member schools hosts a group of senior students, teachers, and heads to participate in MBIS.
  • The host school chooses a challenge of global importance for participants to research and discuss before and during the week-long event.
  • Every week-long meeting includes guest speakers on the challenge topic.
  • The students and faculty produce a final accord that represents the group's work and its key conclusions about the global issue.
