Entry evaluation for students

Entry exams in English and Mathematics take place for primary and secondary students.

Brief description of entry evaluation required

Students applying to our primary department (years 1-6) will be assessed individually by having a pre-admission interview with the key stage coordinators. Children applying to year 1 and year 2 will be asked to undertake a reasoning test. Children applying to key stage 2 will be asked to undertake a standardised test such as the CAT4 Test.

Students applying to secondary department year groups (years 7-13), for whom English is not their first language must fulfill English language requirements by taking a placement test, such as the online Cambridge Placement Test.

This trend looks set to continue next year as our Year 12 students have also performed exceptionally well so far with 53% of all grades being A-C. This sets them up perfectly for their full A2 exams next summer.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Students come to Britannica for our nurturing and personalised learning environment. This ensures that every student gets individual attention and can be challenged and supported be it academically, creatively or physically via sports.

We are proud of our high quality, fully trained teachers from the UK, all of whom are specially selected for their experience and excellence. A child centred approach is emphasised thorough out the whole school. There is quality pastoral care as well as a nurturing and positive learning environment, but it is the excellent community that makes the school so special and welcoming.

Teaching approach of the school

Our concept is to provide a rounded education to all children focused on both academic and non-academic areas. Learning opportunities are designed to give students more than just classroom knowledge, but also the tools to apply this knowledge in the real world. Critical thinking, interdisciplinary thinking, problem solving, and conflict resolution are all part of the “big picture” of a holistic education.
