The British School will be recognised as a leading provider of British curriculum education to children mainly of British origin in an international environment focusing on whole child development and academic achievement.
The British School Al Khubairat is a British Curriculum not-for-profit school providing quality education for children aged 3 to 18-years. It will seek to provide an education equal in standard to the best state and independent schools in English speaking countries. It aims to focus on the whole child by becoming a centre of excellence in sport and the performing arts, as well as helping students to attain high academic value added.
The school's overriding aim is to provide education for English speaking children 'in accordance with the best teaching practices, in order to enable them to qualify for normal subsequent education in the United Kingdom within their own age-groups, without disadvantage.' This of course requires the delivery of the National Curriculum of England and Wales, the appointment of British trained and experienced teachers, and a triennial inspection by Ofsted qualified inspectors in order to confirm standards.
Before a child starts school, parents have already played a fundamental role in providing early learning experiences. Teachers value the continued involvement and support of parents in the education of their child, celebrating achievements and working together to develop skills, concepts and self confidence. Children are also encouraged to develop sensitivity, tolerance and empathy towards others.
