Our Vision

To foster and cultivate a passionate learning community which inspires, challenges and encourages students to become the best they can be, whilst developing open views of the world and helping others.

We put teaching and learning at the heart of everything we do. We believe in the individual, their ability and the potential for education to change the world.


At The British School, we endeavour to sustain a happy, stable, safe and orderly environment in which children are enabled to develop skills, knowledge and understanding through exciting learning programmes, allowing them to explore the world of knowledge while nurturing their individual talents. We create opportunities for students to discover their spiritual, mental, emotional, social and physical aspects.

  • We equip our pupils with the basic tools for learning, i.e. literacy, numeracy and oracy, clubbed with sports and co curricular activities to develop discipline of body, mind and soul.
  • We provide the students with first hand experiences in order to make the work stimulating and meaningful. This will encourage a positive and enthusiastic approach to work.
  • We aim to develop independence, co-operation and self motivation in our pupils.
  • We endeavour to foster good relationships between school, home and the community.
  • As we believe that children learn best in an environment free from prejudice, we actively encourage respect for and understanding of all cultures and faiths within the school and wider community.
  • We aim to offer equality of opportunity for all pupils.
  • We value our children and their opinions and encourage this caring attitude throughout the school.
