Our son has had a wonderful time at Britannica and loves every part of it very much, whether it concerns friendships, academic programmes or safety and anti-bulling policies. We are thankful for your kindness and professionalism.
As an inclusive international school, our academic excellence makes us incredibly proud. Our students consistently make better progress in their subjects than the global average - a remarkable achievement given that many of our students are non-native English speakers. Our recent examination results are outstanding. 53% of our IGCSE results, and 53% of our A Levels, are at the top A* and A grades, with a 100% pass rate well over the global averages. When they leave us at the end of Sixth Form, all of our graduates continue their studies in their first choice universities around the world.
