About Us

Our Story

A questioning mind and an adventurous spirit


The British Academy, founded in 2006 has celebrated 11 years of steady growth. What started as a need for an education that offered a seamless transition from primary to secondary education, bypassing the dreaded SEA system, has evolved into a school that prepares children for life and not just for an exam.

Over the last 11 years, we have found that the ideal classroom for us were small class sizes, a room that our children were able to question the teacher on how something works and not get a reply of ‘write the notes’. Classes where the subject was engaging, student’s debate and have an enthusiasm for the topic. We wanted teachers to be a balance of young and experienced educators who are open-minded, progressive and believe in the potential of every student, who have a passion for teaching, who genuinely enjoy and have the requisite desire for working with young adults.

The Academy is a registered Cambridge International School. It is also a registered school with the local Ministry of Education. 


We will create an environment that nurtures questioning minds and adventurous spirits. 


We will create a learning facility that compares favourably to any international school in our chosen disciplines. We consider environmental, social and economic impacts when making decisions to acheive our vision.

We believe:

  • Every child can learn
  • Every child does not learn in the same way
  • Class size directly relates to student learning
  • Every child needs a nurturing and supportive learning environment
  • Readiness to learn, and to move on is our  deciding factor for class placement and promotion
  • Our core values are essential to our teaching and learning  

At The British Academy in striving to achieve the highest educational standards, we value:

  • Learning and Achievement
  • Questioning and Fearlessness
  • Nurturing
  • Innovation
  • Self Discipline
  • Trust

In all our students and staff
