Reach British School is ready for distance learning

Distance & Online Learning

ISP Schools put learners and learning first. Our schools are well prepared and ready for distance learning, and our education team is challenging our teachers to think about the following aspects to ensure the amazing learning is continuous for all our students.

  • A clear focus is on learning
  • Motivation for students to learn
  • Attendance and engagement
  • Sharing, connecting and three way communication
  • Real life learning connections
  • Time management
  • Feedback and next steps

 

We at Reach British School are extremely proud to announce that our distance learning provision has been given the highest possible rating by ADEK in all 13 areas. Reach could not have achieved this rating without the hard work and dedication of our Senior Leadership Team, teachers, faculty staff, and most of all our very supportive parents and committed students.
