The heart of our educational philosophy

At British School of Tirana, the education of the ‘whole child’ is at the heart of our philosophy. In the Early Years Nursery and the Primary School, the class teacher is responsible for the general well-being, as well as the academic development of their students. We want the time they spend at the school to be a happy and secure one. In the Secondary School, this is the role of the Form Tutor.

Weekly assemblies are often devoted to social themes, and children receive regular lessons in Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE). As its title suggests, this programme introduces students to areas that do not feature on academic courses but which have a great role in their lives, in the immediate and short term: to mention just a few of these, the role of family; relationships; leading a healthy lifestyle; and an introduction to notions of civic responsibility.

In order to help our students flourish at British School of Tirana, we expect tutor groups to make a notable contribution to the social life of the school, not least by undertaking charity events and activities designed to keep up and improve the appearance of the site and locality.

The welfare of your child is of paramount interest to teachers at British School of Tirana. A focus on open communication with parents and addressing problems before they escalate, as well as recognising the great things the students bring to the school – all of this ensures that our students thrive in the  positive environment that the British School of Tirana offers.
