IB Candidate School PYP
Welcome to our School, the future starts now !
The British Academy of Tunis is engaged in preparing inquisitive, well-informed, caring and internationally well-educated students who would be aware of a cross-cultural environment and very much tolerant about it as future global citizens.
We value intellectual curiosity as well as independent, critical and creative thinking to promote learner’s potential and maximize their growth. We train our learners to be compassionate, ethical, respectful of differing views, beliefs and cultures, and responsible individuals who positively contribute to the well-being of global communities, concerned to make a difference in the world.
The British Academy of Tunis (BAT) believes effective teaching and learning both take place in a safe and structured educational environment. BAT practices a holistic approach to education where students, teachers and families are unified in the educational best interests of all students. BAT’s model for success incorporates the right for each student to become a reflective, well-informed, and open-minded inquirer with strong principles. Our values involve attributes that represent a wide range of human capacities and responsibilities that surpass intellectual development and academic success. Our students are meant to be considerate, skilled communicators and potentially leading examples of future citizens of the world. All students and teachers at the British Academy are treated with respect regardless of gender, age, race, religion or nationality. We are a community and we achieve excellence together.
Our vision at BAT is to foster a distinguished learning community committed to excellence, innovation, collaboration, life-learning and tolerance. It also involves educating all students to the highest levels of academic achievement, to enable them to reach and expand their potential, and to prepare them to become productive and responsible students with strong ethics. We inspire our students to become creative, caring and compassionate members of the world global society.
What makes us an International school?
Supporting its mission, British Academy of Tunis (BAT) has developed a curriculum framework that follows the IB programs for PYP and MYP enriched with an interdisciplinary approach also derived from the Cambridge International curriculum. At BAT, we provide an education that suits dependents of most international communities residing in Tunisia. Our students are well provided with an opportunity to be learning in classes with reduced students’ numbers, where they can meet with a multitude of nationality holders and a variety of linguistic and cultural backgrounds.
Our teaching staff is made of an international team of native English teachers along with some of the local teachers who proved of an advanced level of proficiency in English language and modern teaching strategies. While they all possess a rich experience teaching at the primary and elementary stages, each one of them brings in a unique background enriching our multicultural and multilingual structure of the school.
At British Academy of Tunis (BAT), we have developed a curriculum framework that follows the IB programs for PYP enriched with an interdisciplinary approach derived from the Cambridge International Curriculum validated by CAIE.
The IB program is designed to be innovative, enabling students to develop skills relevant to current and future needs in different fields.
IB learners are:
-encouraged to think critically and solve complex problems
-drive their own learning
-a core part in educational programmes that can lead them to some of the highest-ranking universities around the world
-more culturally aware through the development of a second language
-able to engage with people in an increasingly globalized, rapidly changing world.
IB students develop strong academic, social and emotional characteristics. They are also likely to perform well academically – often better than students on other curricula.
