Summary/Abstract: Foreign schools had the opportunity to open as a result of the fact that the Europeans were given commercial privileges in the Ottoman state and these privileges became permanent over time. Foreign schools operating in the Ottoman lands were first opened by the French and then the British. Metin Ünver, with the study titled "The establishment of the English Boys' High School in Istanbul in the context of the debates on the decline of British Commerce in the Ottoman State against Germany", was previously related to the Istanbul British Boys' High School. He evaluated it in the context of schools opened as a means of competition for foreign states to have economic influence on the Ottoman lands. In this study, in the context of the Ottoman document titled "Zükura Mahsus Ġngiliz Mektebi", which is the original of the study called Nişantaşı English Boys School, which forms the basis of our subject, information such as the opening of the school, student admission conditions, structure, school organization and the lessons taught, the course contents were tried to be evaluated. This information was supported by archive documents related to the subject in the Ottoman archive of the Prime Ministry.
