For the academic year 2023-2024 BritAcademy is enrolling now.
Excerpt from our COBIS Lead Improvement Partner, following BritAcademy Compliance visit in November 2018: ‘The school is a very happy and safe place and has developed a strong sense of community. The children clearly enjoy coming to school, the teachers are positive. The parents are happy with the level of communication that the school provides and feel that their children have made significant progress.’ BritAcademy has now the Patron’s Accreditation and Compliance member status.
Because social and emotional development is as important as the cognitive development, our educational approach at BritAcademy focuses on developing children’s adaptability, creativity and emotional balance, as well as critical thinking.
Children are being involved in games and projects that encourage cooperation; they learn about empathy and how to efficiently manage their feelings, thus establishing positve relationships with their peers, parents and teachers

Creating a stimulating environment
The environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning. Enabling environments encourage children to play because they feel relaxed, comfortable and ‘at home’ in them. When children feel emotionally safe and secure they are able to explore and find out about the place they are in and the things they can see, touch, manoeuvre or manipulate. At BritAcademy, we provide a safe enabling environment for all children
Physical development and nature time
Outdoors children picture themselves as planes ready to take off; it also the place where they plant a tree or build a bird house
Children are observed during play and in social interactions with other children. Based on these observations key-workers identify strength areas and areas where children need improvement.
Transparency and communication
A child education must be a partnership between parents and educators; thus, we consider transparent communication as an essential factor that should involve all parties
