Education is so much more than academics; we also focus on developing our student’s into competent and confident global citizens.
The Ultra Curriculum
The Britus Education Enrichment Model
The Britus Education ultra-curriculum is education beyond four walls, text books and orthodox learning strategies, measuring the success of students based on their university and career placements, along with high academic results. The curriculum is designed to prepare students as ‘Post 21st century learners’ by developing the attitude of entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and social reformers, creating high achievers. Based on the values of perseverance, integrity and trust, the ultra-curriculum develops our students into open-minded, self-reflective, confident and continuous learners.
A good school is one where:
- Student success is measured by the academic output;
- Parents are happy about the school;
- Student led activities and extracurricular activities are limited;
- No SMART goal for non-academic, extracurricular, enrichment and engagement activities.
A great school is one where:
- Students maintain a good academic output;
- Parents are involved in school through parent engagement activities;
- Student led activities and extracurricular activities are highly appreciated and promoted with clear objectives to be achieved;
- SMART goal for non-academic, extracurricular, enrichment and global engagement activities;
- Student success is measured on the university placement and alumni career support system;
- Alumni engagement, student entrepreneurship, scholarships, internships and job readiness are part of KPIs.
Britus Education enrichment model (BEEM) aims to transform good schools to great schools. Enrichment leads the development of the students beyond the regular curriculum. It improves parents’ involvement and engagement in school. Enrichment make students feel the sense of belonging to the community and promotes and measures the success of all extracurricular, engagement activities. Enrichment promotes international engagement between schools and global communities, along with the university placement and alumni career support system. Enrichment promotes alumni engagement in terms of scholarship support, internships and student entrepreneurship.
The Britus Education enrichment model (BEEM) is one of the pillars that helps students to achieve the defined success in the ultra-curriculum.
Extra-curricular and co-curricular activities are an integral part of developing our students’ enrichment profile. Britus Education is committed to developing a range of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities with internal and external partners to ensure that the students have ample opportunities to learn and develop their interests and talents.
The Sheffield Private School has a well-established Extra Curricular Activities programme that takes place during the whole week.
We teach children how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing their knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their true potential. We deliver a broad and balanced, creative curriculum which reflects our school ethos and our understanding of how children learn best and this enables them to develop their talents as well.
Extra-Curricular Activities are divided into two categories:
Inclusive Enrichment Activities provided by teachers two days in a week. These activities vary from sports to artistic activities.
Optional Enrichment activities are provided by professional companies and qualified trainers. They are conducted three days a week in the school’s premises. These activities are chargeable and the cost depends on the activity.
The Britus Education enrichment model promotes real and virtual experiential learning that will be delivered by a team of experts as part of the learning environment. Students will experience a variety of opportunities for domestic and international activities, all of which will help in developing each of our students into global citizens.
The Britus Education enrichment model promotes learning beyond the curriculum through specifically designed engagement activities, with parents, students, local and international organisations, universities, and partner schools, local and international communities. Volunteering opportunities, internships and entrepreneurship programmes with the help and support of all stake holders is an important part of our engagement portfolio.
Engaging students with the wider community allows them to explore and develop their social intelligence. A student who volunteers within school and for events outside school learns to manage time, develop leadership skills, enhance emotional intelligence and develop a broader perspective in life. Exposure to community work starts early in the primary years through local community trips such as clean-up drives and old age home visits (elderly support) and through secondary broadens into volunteering for charity drives, in-school community work and for parent-led events such as the annual carnival, ‘The Family Fun Day’, to participating in the annual international community trip to various countries where students engage in infrastructural building, donating books and clothes and also supporting local communities through their schools and hospitals.
