At Britannica, we put curiosity and the joy of learning at the heart of everything we do. When a student truly enjoys their educational experiences, their academic potential is unlocked. Ensuring we support the right that every young person is entitled to education, no matter their background, is at the very core of our vision; this is what makes the Looked After sector important to us. 

Just do one thing

I was talking with a friend the other day. He runs his own business, so needs to be creative in his daily thinking. He offered a great nugget of wisdom, which was this: if you are going online, just do one thing. 
As a school, we are always ready to learn from and with others. Our creative and challenging curriculum, which we are incredibly proud of, has only been able to become as successful as it is through the work that we have done with other schools. Through local, national and global partnerships, we have been able to learn so much about ourselves and that is why we value collaborative learning so ...
It doesn’t really need to be pointed out that setting and marking homework is a drain on our time. As an English Literature teacher, marking extended essays by each student always took a big slice out of my day. Technology has helped me make this process a lot easier, and it has given me tools to really engage my students.
The K-12 online tutoring market is booming around the world, with recent research estimating it to grow by 12% per year over the next five years, a USD $60bn increase. By breaking down geographic barriers and moving beyond the limits of local teaching expertise, online tutoring is an especially valuable tool for those looking to supplement their studies in the developing world, and students globally are increasingly signing up to online ...
Two major sporting organisations – the Premier League and ECB –  joined forces to launch the Roar! for Diversity competition and school resources last week. Lawrence Community Primary School in Liverpool was chosen for the inspirational inaugural lesson where the pupils received an unexpected, but welcome, surprise from a number of sporting stars. The school’s deputy head Karen Ford reports on the day and describes how the new resources will ...
Groupthink silences conflict and challenge in teams that may create a deliberate or accidental culture of passiveness in group decision making.
Recent reports by the Education Policy Institute thinktank and the Fair Education Alliance have highlighted that, despite efforts of schools and policy-makers, the attainment gap at KS4 is actually widening. For educators driven by a desire to help every student do the best they can, this discrepancy is a tragedy, especially considering that students with lower prior attainment tend to have the greatest opportunity to make gains. The circumstances seem ...
EdTech is one of the fastest growing areas of the technology industry. But with budget constraints and a plethora of online edtech platforms, tools and resources on the market, knowing how much to spend and what to buy are not easy decisions for schools.
Reports in August of more girls taking GCSEs in computing was a welcome sign for most of us in education. A rise of 7.2% was brilliant news. However, beneath this statistic was the somewhat worrying fact that boys still made up 78.6% of entries and even with the rise in girls, only 17,158 of them took GCSE computing across the UK. With computing, design technology, science and creative skills becoming more and more ...
Participation rates in apprenticeships are running pretty much 50/50 for men and women. Ostensibly, it appears that apprenticeships are a success story for equality. Indeed, for the last ten years participation has slightly tipped in favour of women; but this year, for the first time, more men started on apprenticeships than women. What does this tweak in the statistics tell us about how apprenticeships are evolving?
In April 2019, the Minister for Education in Wales, Kirsty Williams, announced that school uniforms in Wales are to become more affordable for families, with a limit on single-supplier, branded items that have become commonplace in recent years.
