The Withdrawal Agreement also contains provisions allowing the United Kingdom to leave the agreement establishing the Statute for the European Schools, with the United Kingdom bound by the Convention and the accompanying rules relating to accredited European Schools until the end of the last academic year of the transition period, i.e. .
