Britarch Schools are a conglomerate of the first three tiers of the educational institution – the Nursery, Primary and Secondary Schools, which the Founder found expedient to bring together for an all-round development of any child admitted into the school.All her secondary school teachers are Degree holders, most of whom have educational qualifications and some are also 2nd degree holders. Teachers who are lucky to work in Britarch have the rare opportunity of receiving weekly seminars every Friday which equip them for their work for the following week or weeks.
From the preceding preamble, it is quite certain that Britarch Schools offer a rich variety of academic activities and co-curricular activities, five days a week and even at week – ends. This is to ensure that the children – boys and girls, through the help of their highly qualified proprietress, director, coordinators and teachers, achieve brilliant academic successes through hard work. The performance of the pupils and students in all the external examinations taken so far bear testimony to these facts.
At the Primary school level, all the pupils who sat for the State Schools Admissions Examinations always qualified for the State Model Schools if they wished to go there. In the First School Leaving Certificate Examinations, now known as the Primary School Leaving Assessment Tests, majority of the pupils pass at the Distinction or Credit levels. At the Junior Secondary School, students’ performances are to say the least excellent. In the past years including this year 2016, our best students had Alphas or Distinctions in all the 13 subjects offered. The achievements of our Senior Secondary School Students in both academics and co-curricular activities since our first set of students sat for the Senior School Certificate Examinations in 2007, have given the School its popular name of “a home for the best” in academics and the award – winning school in co-curricular competitions. Some competitions we have taken part in include the NNPC Sponsored Science Quiz Competition, the National Festival of Schools Science and Quiz Competition, PTDF Science Quiz, National Young Consumers Contests, and Cowbell Mathematics Competition.
In Competitions, Britarch Students have been known to win Scholarships to pursue their tertiary education.
The list of Britarch’s laurels is endless in spite of its short period of existence. The news of the good performances of our students in their academics gives us immeasurable joy.
