What courses are available for the new term?

The British Council’s courses introduce children to essential life skills such as  independence, team-working and problem solving while they learn to communicate confidently in English.  These skills are essential building blocks for the higher order thinking skills (HOTS) that young learners are expected to demonstrate throughout their school lives, through to university, and even in future jobs.

The Secondary courses including the Lower Secondary course for students aged 13-15, and Upper Secondary course for those aged 16-17, lay the groundwork for higher education through the use of high-quality materials to offer students development of language and academic skills.
