Student Enrichment

Britus International School – Bahrain provides a rich program of enrichment activity that takes education beyond our four walls, away from textbooks and into the wider world. We aim to provide all our learners with the opportunity to not only improve on their academic progress with targeted support classes but also to immerse themselves in a range of cultural celebrations and events that truly enhance their understanding of global issues.  

Our enrichment activities are designed to prepare students as true 21st century learners by developing positive attitudes towards entrepreneurship, social reform and the use of technology to support innovation and excellence.  We aim to create a culture where high quality learning opportunities help students to become high achievers. Enrichment is based around our core values of perseverance, integrity and trust and aims to shape our students into open-minded, self-reflective, confident and continuous learners.

A good school is one where:

  • Student success is measured by their academic output;
  • Parents are happy and positive about the school;
  • Student led activities and extracurricular activities are available;
  • Goal setting is focussed on one aspect of a learners development.

A great school is one where:

  • Students excel and achieve the highest of standards;
  • Parents are involved in all aspects of school life;
  • Student led activities and extracurricular activities are wide and varied and highly valued by students and wider community
  • Goal setting is personalised and supports individuality and excellence;
  • Student success is measured not only through outstanding academic outcomes but also through values, relationships, a commitment to lifelong learning and respect for others

 

Britus International School – Bahrain’ program of enrichment activity aims to transform our school into a great school. Enrichment supports the development of the students beyond the classroom as part of a real learning community. It improves parent’s involvement and engagement in school. Enrichment makes students feel a sense of belonging to the community and promotes the success of all extracurricular activities. Enrichment promotes international engagement between schools and global communities and helps to guide learners on making the right choices about their future learning pathways.

Extra-Curricular

Extra-curricular and co-curricular activities are an integral part of developing our students’ enrichment profile. BISBH is committed to developing a range of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities with a range of local and international partners to ensure that all students have a broad program of opportunities to learn and develop their interests and talents.

Experiential

Our enrichment model promotes face-to-face and virtual experiential learning, delivered by a team of experts with the aim of opening minds, promoting inquiry and stimulating interest beyond the formal curriculum. Students will experience a range of both domestic and international activity which supports our aim to ensure students play an active role in their community whilst developing a genuine awareness of global concerns and issues

Engaging

The BISBH model promotes learning beyond the curriculum through specifically designed engagement activities, with parents, students, local and international organisations, universities, partner schools as well as local and international communities. Volunteering opportunities, internships, entrepreneurship programmes, charity activity and debating challenges are just some examples of our engagement portfolio and the importance we place on developing social awareness as well as academic excellence.
