We create opportunities to develop a range of skills and values that will be beneficial for future roles in society.
At Brighton College Al Ain the E-Learning programme for Senior School combines streamed classes with project-based tasks and scheduled tutor sessions, empowering pupils to take ownership of their learning. Consistent assessments in the form of formative and summative tasks allow teachers to know their pupils in depth and carefully monitor, track and plan their progress.
Pupils are also provided with opportunities that challenge, inspire, and encourage them to investigate, analyze and be inventive, through cross-curricular projects.
Pupils will observe, identify, plan, implement, test and apply what they have learnt throughout their course of study. The school day for senior pupils includes scheduled face time with teachers, this planning allows for adaptability, and takes into consideration the limitations of technology, the concern about screen time, and the need for families to be flexible with their devices and home arrangements.
We inspire excellence in our pupils by presenting them with opportunities to think innovatively, logically, analytically, and critically.
All teachers set work for their pupils during the day that takes approx. 55 minutes to complete. This is 30 minutes in the morning and another 25 minutes in the afternoon to finish the work, prep or consolidate the learning.
Where our Culture of Kindness inspires our digital classroom.
Brighton College Al Ain has a wonderful sense of community and all our parents, teachers, friends, and connections are important to us. This begins with the commitment to clear, regular and informative communication going out to parents and ends with an amazing sense of support and unity from everyone through a plethora of joint initiatives.
Be it engaging sessions with peers and teachers over interactive platforms, taking part in live Tunes at Tea time performances or completing pre-recorded PE activities, the benefits are manifold; friendships, passion, role models, positive relationships and pastoral support are all promoted. Ultimately this gives our pupils a sense of identity and the knowledge that they are a part of something special and extraordinary- the Brighton family.
