Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Our motto is: Inspire, Excel, Exceed.

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 approach is to provide a well-rounded education for all students, focusing on both academic and non-academic areas. Learning opportunities are designed to give students more than just textbook 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 at Britannica.
