At The British School (TBS) we aim to achieve the very best in all that we do. We have a culture of high expectations for all our students and staff and this translates into excellence and kindness in how we approach our learning, our work and our relationships. We are passionate educators and deeply enjoy our focus on learning and teaching.
We are part of a unique, inclusive community where each individual is valued and listened to. In Primary we follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) as we believe this embraces our commitment to an interdisciplinary and cross curricular way of learning, integrating knowledge, skills and understanding. It also celebrates and promotes the international mindedness we seek to nurture in all our learners. A commitment to curiosity, independent learning, imaginative response and a willingness not to be afraid to make mistakes in our learning is a shared value amongst all our teachers and students. We believe this provides relevant context, supports life-long learning and values the children’s interests and backgrounds at every opportunity.
We embrace the many opportunities to integrate ICT into our learning, and increasingly look for new ways to use technological tools to be creative. Early Years use the Tapestry e-learning platform, while all Primary students, teachers and parents utlise Seesaw to share, celebrate, assess and document learning.
At TBS we provide a wide range of extracurricular and residential programme activities. These enable our students to explore their passions and interests beyond the classroom and to learn about the local environment and beautiful country in which we live. We offer sporting, creative and community-linked activities, which draw on the expertise of our staff, our local coaches and partners in the community. We are also very proud of our Primary Forest School provision, which allows students in our Early Years Stage (three to five years) and Key Stage 1 (ages five to seven) to learn about how to care for, take risks in and responsibly enjoy outdoor environments. These all provide unique opportunities for our students to experience the rich culture and challenges that exist in Nepal.
Within our Early Years Stage the children are given many opportunities to interact in positive relationships and in enabling environments which foster the characteristics of effective learning through playing and exploring, active learning, appropriate risk-taking and being creative and thinking critically. On reaching Foundation 2, the children are able to adjust to the needs of slightly more formal schooling, while still having plenty of opportunity to learn and discover through self-initiated activities and play.
I am truly proud to have such wonderful colleagues and inspirational children to work with everyday. We are privileged to live and work in such an amazing country like Nepal – a country that never ceases to surprise. Surprised by Joy wrote C.S. Lewis; I look forward to welcoming you to The British School where I am sure you too will be surprised by the joy of being part of the TBS Community.
