The British School strives to develop lifelong learners who are internationally-minded, respect differences and care for each other and the world in which they live.
At The British School, learners strive to be:
They are kind, compassionate, respectful and sensitive to the needs of others. They have a commitment to action and service so as to become responsible citizens.
They develop natural curiosity, ask questions about the world in which they live, investigate and participate in active research.
They are well-informed and explore beliefs, ideas and concepts so as to develop a deep understanding across a range of subjects. They seek information about local, national and global issues and make connections in their learning.
They show initiative, apply thinking skills critically and creatively and make choices so as to arrive at considered judgements.
They listen attentively, express ideas and information clearly, confidently and creatively in more than one language.
They have a clear vision that is shared with others. They are motivated and motivators, helping others in order to achieve collective success. They are enthusiastic, self-disciplined and dedicated, demonstrating integrity and humility. They consider choices carefully so as to make wise decisions.
They are courageous, embrace challenges, persevere in the face of adversity and recognise effort as a route to success. They use feedback positively and find learning and inspiration in the success of others.
They use their powers of imagination to generate original ideas that make a positive contribution to their own and others’ lives. They are expressive, offer alternative perspectives and take risks when attempting to solve problems in their learning.
They are honest, fair and ethical and understand the rights and responsibilities of themselves and others. They know that actions have consequences and show courage when deciding upon the right thing to do.
They work as part of a team, make an active contribution and build positive relationships by being adaptable, friendly and cooperative. They share and understand that the whole is greater than the sum of individual parts.
