Highly trained and experienced British teachers coach and mentor your child to ensure that they excel in the core subjects of Maths, English and Science but also in their chosen optional areas of the curriculum.

Students, on average, will tend to study 3 or 4 different subjects of their choice.
‘When I look back at my three years at Britannica, it appears to me that this is the place where fascinating things in life are uncovered. Offering a vibrant, supportive and creative environment for academic and artistic prosperity, talents are not the only things valuable here nor are achievements. Discovering passion, building friendships, learning from individuals around you are what the teachers wish to see the most, and which I have experienced personally as a student. There is, frankly, no reason to not to love this place.'
