The British School was established, originally as a primary school, in 1966. It is a fee-paying, not-for-profit, independent, international school delivering the English National Curriculum with full time UK recruited staff (including the Principal). The school accommodates students from Foundation 1 to A Levels. The International Primary Curriculum is followed alongside National Curriculum Mathematics and English from Foundation 1 to Year 6. Cambridge International Examinations and Edexcel syllabi are followed for IGCSE and A Level examinations (CIE is a part of the UCLES Examinations Board).

The School currently serves 40 nationalities all sharing English as the teaching medium. The school is very well resourced and currently has more than 500 learners on roll. As staff, we are very committed to the multicultural aspects of the school. We are an inclusive school and as such we value each pupil and the wealth of experience and culture that they each contribute to the school as a whole.

The buildings consist of a large house that has been retrofitted and converted for our purposes which consists of the primary classrooms, an ICT suite with five full time support staff, and a small Food Technology area. There are also a number of purpose built blocks that include:

  • A custom built assembly and sports hall with stage.
  • A purpose built Performing Arts Center with a fully equipped Drama hall and 2 Music areas with various small music and drama practice rooms.
  • A purpose built Secondary Section that houses an ICT suite, 3 laboratories (of which 2 are new in October 2016), 3 English rooms, 3 Humanities classrooms and four subject based classrooms.
  • A purpose built two storey Library.
  • A Sixth Form Centre with social space, office for the Head of Sixth Form and 5 seminar style Sixth Form teaching rooms.
  • The attractive grounds also contain three basketball courts, cricket nets, two Astroturf pitches for sports and play, a covered dance studio, various modern play areas for primary and a duck pond!
