                                   January 17th, 2011
This Agreement is entered into effective on the date specified on the Signature Page
between the British School as specified on the Signature Page (the “School”), and the
teacher specified on the Signature Page (the “Teacher”).

WHEREBY, it is agreed that the Teacher shall be employed by the School to work under
the terms and conditions set forth below:

SECTION 1. Appointment

       1.1   The School shall employ the Teacher and the Teacher shall serve as a
       member of the School’s teaching staff in accordance with the Conditions of
       Employment set forth in Section A, which section forms part of this Agreement.

       1.2     In performing the services contemplated under this Agreement, the
       Teacher will be required to work outside the United Kingdom in accordance with
       the terms set forth in Section F, which section forms a part of this Agreement.

SECTION 2. Commencement, Duration, and Termination

       2.1     The Teacher's employment under this Agreement shall be effective
       beginning on the commencement date specified on the Signature Page and shall
       continue for a one year period, unless employment is terminated in accordance
       with the provisions of this Agreement. If the Agreement is not terminated on or
       before the end of this one year period, the Teacher shall be asked to sign a
       renewal Agreement for another one-year period, and such one-year renewals shall
       continue until the Agreement is terminated by one of the parties. Unless
       otherwise indicated, all of the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement
       shall remain applicable to the parties during all renewal periods.

       2.2    The Teacher's employment under this Agreement is subject to a
       probationary period of 6 months, which shall expire 6 months from the
       commencement date specified on the Signature Page. At any time during this 6-
       month period, the School, at its sole discretion, may terminate the Teacher’s
       employment effective on such date as the School may determine by giving the
       Teacher written notice of termination at least 10 days prior to the effective date of
       termination. If the School does not provide the Teacher with such written notice,
       the probationary period shall expire, and the Agreement shall only be terminated
       in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. This probationary
       period provision shall only apply to the first 6 months of the first two-year term of
       this Agreement.

        2.3     The School may at any time terminate this Agreement effective on
        December 31, April 30, or August 31 of any year by giving to the Teacher written
        notice of such termination least one academic term (as defined in Section 2.7
        below) prior to the termination date.

        2.4     The Teacher may only terminate this Agreement effective on August 31 of
        a year and must give the School at least two academic terms’ notice of such
        termination.

        2.5     Any written notice required to be served hereunder by the Teacher on the
        School shall be properly served if it is either handed to or sent by post to either
        the School or to the School’s Head. Any written notice required to be served
        hereunder by the School on the Teacher shall be properly served if it is handed to
        the Teacher personally or sent by post to the Teacher's last known residential
        address in the U.S.A. All notices sent by post by either party shall be sent by first
        class post and be deemed to have been received and served on the third day after
        posting.

        2.6     If, with respect to the first two-year term of this Agreement, the Teacher
        terminates this Agreement or fails to provide the required two academic terms
        notice, the Teacher will bear all repatriation costs to include airfare and shipment
        of goods, and the School will have the right to reclaim from the Teacher any costs
        associated with failure to complete the full term of the Agreement, including, but
        not limited to, costs associated with the Teacher’s visa, accommodation lease, and
        other costs associated with the School’s loss of the Teacher’s employment.

        2.7    For purposes of this Agreement, an “academic year” shall mean the period
        beginning September 1 and ending August 31 and shall consist of three “academic
        terms,” the first running from September 1 to December 31, the second running
        from January 1 to April 30, and the third running from May 1 to August 31.

        correspond with the academic term dates set forth in Section 2.7), except that, in
        the case of the Christmas and Easter holiday, the four days of work (two days
        after the academic term and two days before the following academic term) shall
        be reduced to no more than a total of two days, the days of work/holiday to be

        adequate documentary evidence to support both bereavement and unpaid
        compassionate leave.

SECTION 8.       Medical Examination

        8.1      If, during the period of the Teacher’s employment at the School, the Head
        determines that a medical examination of the Teacher is required, the School
        shall, at its expense, be authorized to require the Teacher to undergo such an
        examination by a qualified physician of the School’s own choosing with the
        results of the examination disclosed to the School. The School is further
        authorized to discuss the results of the examination with the physician as may be
        necessary to ensure that the Teacher is able to properly discharge his/her duties.
        The Teacher’s own doctor shall be entitled to receive a copy of the medical
        report.

        8.2     The Teacher’s employment under this Agreement may be terminated by

        provisions as set forth in Section D, which section forms part of this Agreement.
        Failure to disclose prior medical conditions that could materially affect the
        Teacher’s ability to perform his/her duties will result in immediate termination of
        this Agreement at the discretion of the School.

SECTION 9.       Health and Safety

        The School is obligated to provide the Teacher with a work place and working
        conditions which, so far as is reasonably practicable, are safe and without risk to

        safety and the health and safety of others.

        documents set out in Section E, which section forms part of this Agreement.

        The Teacher agrees that all disciplinary and grievance matters shall be handled in
        accordance with the Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures as may be set forth in
        the British Schools of America Policies and Procedures Handbook. The Teacher
        understands, however, that these procedures will not apply to any disciplinary or

      Inspiring World Class Learning
        grievance matters that may arise during the 6-month probationary period
        described in Section 2.2.

SECTION 12.       Suspension

        In the event that the Teacher is suspected of having committed an act, which, in
        the opinion of the Head, warrants that the Teacher not be permitted on the School
        grounds to perform his/her normal duties, the Head (or, in the Head’s absence, the
        Deputy Head) shall have the right to immediately suspend the Teacher on full pay
        and benefits pending an investigation of the alleged act.

SECTION 13.       Summary Termination

        13.1 Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if the Teacher is
        determined by the Head to have engaged in an act of Gross Misconduct, the
        School shall be entitled to terminate the Teacher’s employment under this
        Agreement forthwith and without future pay. The Disciplinary Procedures
        described in Section 11 above shall not be applicable in these situations.

        13.2 Such action shall not prejudice the School’s right to seek damages or other
        appropriate judgments for any breach or non-performance of this Agreement, and
        the Teacher shall remain subject to all continuing obligations under this
        Agreement.

        13.3 For these purposes, Gross Misconduct shall constitute (i) deliberate
        violation of the primary duties and responsibilities set forth in this Agreement, or
        refusal or unwillingness to perform such duties and responsibilities in good faith;
        (ii) conduct that constitutes moral turpitude or that would tend to bring public
        disrespect, contempt, or ridicule on the School; (iii) theft, embezzlement, work-
        related violence and non-work-related violence affecting the workplace; and (iv)
        intentional violation of any federal, state, or local law, rule, or regulation, which
        violation may reflect adversely upon School in the sole judgment of the Head.

SECTION 14.       Scope of Contract and Statement of Employment Particulars

        This Agreement supersedes any and all employment contracts that may exist
        between the Teacher and the School or the Teacher and the British Schools of
        America. This Agreement sets forth all of the terms and conditions of the
        Teacher’s employment to the exclusion of any other promises or representations,
        whether oral or written.


SECTION 15.            Non compete Agreement

        15.1 During the term of the Teacher’s employment under this Agreement
        (including any and all renewal periods) and for a period of one year following

      Inspiring World Class Learning
        termination for any reason, the Teacher agrees not to conduct teaching,
        administrative, or any other services as an employee or in any other capacity for
        an educational institution that offers a National Curriculum (England) to its
        students, which educational institution may be located within a radius of 100
        miles of any British School that is owned and operated by the British Schools of
        America.

        15.2 For a period of one year following termination of this Agreement, the
        Teacher agrees not to directly or indirectly contact either (i) parents of children
        attending the School or any British School that is owned and operated by the
        British Schools of America, or (ii) current employees of the School or of any
        British School that is owned and operated by the British Schools of America for
        the purpose of soliciting the employee to leave the employee’s current employ to
        work for a competitor.

SECTION 16.            Liquidated Damages

        Because of the difficulty in being able to prove actual damages should the
        Teacher be in breach of this Agreement, if the School terminates this Agreement
        for any reasons other than those set forth in Section 2.3, the Teacher agrees to pay
        to the School an amount of $7,500 as liquidated damages in lieu of actual
        damages suffered by the School.

SECTION A.       Conditions of Employment

The Teacher agrees that the following shall be conditions of his/her employment by the

        office or engage in any activity which, in the opinion of the Head, may interfere
        with the proper performance of the Teacher's duties under this Agreement;
        however, the Teacher shall not be required to abstain from any activity that does

        B.2.1 and B.2.2 above, work such additional hours as may be needed to enable
        him/her to discharge effectively her/his professional duties, including, in
        particular, the marking of students' work, the writing of reports on students, and
        the preparation of lessons, teaching materials and teaching programmes.

        B.2.6 The times outside the 1560 specified hours at which duties shall be
        performed shall not be defined but shall depend upon the work needed to
        discharge the Teacher’s duties.

        B.2.7 The Teacher shall undertake at least one after-school club/activity per
        week as directed by the Head.

SECTION C.       Benefits in the Event of Absence Owing to Illness or Injury

        C.1     During the Teacher’s first full year of employment, the Teacher shall be
        entitled to five days of fully paid sick leave, and after completing 120 days of
        service during such first full year of employment, shall also receive 15 days of
        sick leave at a half salary rate.

        C.2     During the Teacher’s second full year of employment, and for such
        additional years of employment under renewals of this Agreement, the Teacher
        shall be entitled to 10 days of fully paid sick leave and 20 days at a half salary
        rate.

        C.3     If the Teacher is sick during one or more holiday days when he/she would
        not otherwise be required to work at the School, the holiday period shall not be
        counted against the Teacher’s sick pay entitlement whether the Teacher is on fully
        paid or half paid sick leave. If the Teacher is on fully paid sick leave, he/she shall
        receive full pay during such holiday periods; if on half pay sick leave, he/she shall
        receive half pay during such periods. If the Teacher has exhausted his/her sick
        pay entitlement, he/she shall receive no pay during such holiday periods.

        C.4     If, immediately preceding a holiday period, the Teacher is either receiving
        half sick pay or has exhausted his/her sick pay entitlement, and the Teacher
        recovers during the holiday period, the Teacher shall be deemed to have returned
        to duty on the day that the Teacher is certified by a competent medical
        professional as fit to return to duty, provided that the Teacher actually returns to
        duty during the first 14 consecutive working days after the end of the holiday
        period.

        C.5     If the Teacher is on sick leave at the end of the first or second year of
        employment (or at the end of any year of employment during the renewal period
        of the Agreement), the Teacher shall not be entitled to the following year’s sick
        leave benefits under Sections C.1 or C.2, as the case may be, until the Teacher has

Page 10 of 15                                    Expatriate Teacher Employment Agreement, January 17th, 2011
      Inspiring World Class Learning
        returned to duty for a consecutive period of 14 working days during the following
        academic term.

        C.6     If the Teacher is absent for more than three consecutive days during an
        academic term due to personal illness or injury, the Teacher shall submit such
        doctor statements as the Head, in her/his sole discretion, shall require, provided
        that such doctor’s statements shall not be required more frequently than (i) on the
        eighth day of absence, (ii) at the end of each month of absence, or (iii) on return
        to duty, unless fitness for return to duty has already been ascertained and the
        Teacher returns to duty on the date specified on the doctor's previous statement.
        Notwithstanding the foregoing provision, in case of either a prolonged absence or
        frequent absences from work, as those terms are determined by the Head in
        his/her sole discretion, the Teacher may be required, at any time and at the
        School’s expense, to submit to physical examination by an approved physician.

        C.7     If the Teacher enters a hospital or other healthcare institution, the Teacher
        shall submit a doctor's statement on entry and on discharge in substitution of the
        periodic statements described in Section C.6 above.

SECTION D. Lack of Capability

        D.1     If it is alleged by the Head that the Teacher is not able to adequately
        discharge his/her duties due to lack of skill, aptitude and/or ability, unsatisfactory
        performance, ill health or otherwise, it will be the responsibility of the Head to
        offer suitable help and advice to the Teacher, the nature of such help and advice to
        vary depending on the particular alleged shortcomings. Such assistance should
        include regular reviews (normally at intervals of not less than four weeks) and one
        or more of the following as appropriate:

        1.      Provision of counselling
        2.      Referral for medical advice
        3.      Review of commitments and responsibilities
        4.      Provision of applicable training and targets for improvement
        5.      Opportunity to review good practices in other appropriate establishments

        D.2     If such help and advice has been provided for not less than one academic
        term and the Teacher’s performance is still unsatisfactory, the Head should advise
        the Teacher in writing that her/his performance is still unsatisfactory. In doing
        so, the Head will set out the facts and recommend ways of improving the
        Teacher's performance together with precise performance objectives and
        indicators. The Head will give the Teacher a reasonable time in which to rectify
        her/his deficiencies, and after such time has expired, the Head and the Teacher
        will review the current status of the Teacher’s performance.

        D.3     If, at the time of the review date, there has been no marked improvement
        in performance and there has been a failure by the Teacher to reach and maintain

Page 11 of 15                                    Expatriate Teacher Employment Agreement, January 17th, 2011
      Inspiring World Class Learning
        the objectives and indicators referred to above, the Head, after consultation with
        the Chief Executive Officer and/or Director of Education and Learning of the
        British Schools of America, will inform the Teacher in writing that her/his
        performance still falls below an acceptable level. The Teacher will also be
        informed in writing of the areas where improvement is still necessary and the
        period for which appropriate support will continue to be made available.

        D.4    If, after receiving the help, advice, and written warnings outlined above,
        the Teacher’s performance continues to be unsatisfactory, it may become
        necessary to initiate formal action to dismiss under the Disciplinary Hearing
        procedures that are set forth in British Schools of America Policies and
        Procedures Handbook.

SECTION E.        Duties of the Teacher relating to Confidential Information and
Documents

        E. 1 During or after his/her employment under this Agreement, and whether or
        not the School shall breach any of its obligations under this Agreement, the
        Teacher shall not divulge or communicate to any person, corporation, company or
        other organisation trade secrets or confidential information regarding the School,
        provided that these obligations shall cease to apply to any information or
        knowledge which may come into the public domain otherwise than by way of
        breach of these obligations.

        E.2    All notes, memoranda, records, correspondence, computer and other discs
        and tapes, and all other documents and material whatsoever (whether made or
        created by the Teacher or otherwise) relating to the affairs of the School shall be
        and remain the property of the School and shall be handed over by the Teacher to
        the Head on demand.

        E.3     Nothing in this Section shall prevent the Teacher after her/his service has
        concluded from requesting from her/his successor in office reasonable access to
        notes, memoranda, or correspondence made by him/her for the purpose of
        providing a reference when the departed Teacher has been requested to act as
        referee on behalf of a former member of staff, and such information shall in all
        normal circumstances be made available.

        E.4     For purposes of this section only, reference to the “School” is deemed to
        also include the British Schools of America and any other related British Schools
        located in the U.S.A.

SECTION F.        Working Outside the United Kingdom

        F.1    The teacher will be required to work outside the United Kingdom at the
        premises of the School located in the U.S.A. for a period of two years.

      Inspiring World Class Learning
        F.2     The Teacher shall, whilst working outside the United Kingdom, be paid
        her/his normal salary in U.S. dollars into a bank account nominated by the School.

        F.3   During the period that the Teacher is required to work outside the United
        Kingdom, the Teacher’s remuneration shall be paid in U.S.

        F.4    No additional terms and conditions apply to the Teacher’s employment
        upon the Teacher returning to the United Kingdom.

        F.5     In an effort to keep within Immigration Laws, British Schools of America
        would like to remind all staff that if they have entered the United States on a
        British Schools of America visa they are not allowed to work for any other
        company, entity or private family other than British Schools of America. For
        those teachers who are or will be considering private tutoring, all tutoring must be
        documented by the school and must be conducted only after having spoken to the
        Head of the School. Failure to comply with these rules could end up in
        deportation for the staff member and closure of the school

SECTION G.        License to Occupy the Accommodation

        G.1     During the duration of the Teacher’s employment under this Agreement,
        the Teacher shall be entitled, free of charge, to occupy living space rented by the
        School as a licensee only and not as a tenant of such living space. The Teacher
        shall be required, however, to vacate such living space as of the date of the
        termination of this Agreement, regardless of the reason for such termination,
        unless the Head shall, in his/her sole discretion, allow occupancy for a stated
        period after termination.

        G.2     The School shall be entitled to require the Teacher to reside in suitable
        alternative living space on giving the Teacher reasonable notice and reimbursing
        to the Teacher the cost of removal, or to deliver up vacant possession of any
        living space on giving reasonable notice of at least one academic term but without
        paying the Teacher any increase in salary or other compensation relating to the
        vacated living space.

        G.3    The Teacher shall not, without consent of the Head, permit any other
        person to occupy the living space with the Teacher other than the Teacher’s
        spouse and dependent children.

        G.4      The Teacher shall keep the living space and any related gardens, fixtures,
        and fittings therein clean and tidy and undamaged, fair wear and tear excepted.

        G.5     Whilst the Teacher is entitled under the terms of this Agreement to occupy
        and does occupy the living space, the School shall pay all rents, rates and other
        taxes that may become payable in respect of the living expenses, except that the

        Teacher shall be liable for all personal income taxes associated with the provision
        by the School of this living space.

        G.6    The Teacher shall not at any time part with possession of the living space
        or any part of it.

        G.7     The School reserves the right to enter the living space at any time on
        giving reasonable notice.

        G.8    In the event of the Teacher’s death during employment under this
        Agreement, the Teacher’s spouse and children shall have the right to continue to
        occupy the living space as licensees only and on the same terms as the Teacher
        occupied the accommodation for three months or such other longer period as the
        Head may decide.
