Welcome to Newton British Academy, Barwa (NBA), a truly international school community consisting of over 70 nationalities. As stated in our Vision, we strive for excellence and celebrate our successes, as a community.
At Newton British Academy, Barwa we aspire to live up to our mission statement in everything that we do. As educators we appreciate that we are honoured to be able to play a significant role in shaping the future lives of our pupils. The staff work tirelessly to ensure that high quality teaching and learning takes place in their classrooms and we endeavour to inspire our pupils to develop a lifelong love of learning. Through the many amazing opportunities that the pupils are given throughout their time at the school, we aim to make sure that our pupils become well rounded individuals who will make a meaningful contribution to the world they will live in.
At NBA we ensure that pupils have many worldly experiences through the promotion of themed educational days and educational visits at home and abroad. We believe that every child is unique and that it is our responsibility to unlock their potential and hidden talents so that they can thrive as individuals. Through pupil participation in the Duke of Edinburgh awards program, public speaking, concerts, assemblies and many other events we ensure that pupils become self -confident individuals who can think for themselves.
The school prides itself on developing confident young people who have a wide variety of skills to take them further in life. The school seeks to offer a range of opportunities to challenge pupils to attain the skills to develop into lifelong learners. The school offers a range of extracurricular activities to promote a holistic education. The atmosphere is busy with pupils engaged in independent learning and collaborative tasks. It is important to recognise that in school, as in life, barriers exist and there will be times when it seems that problems become unconquerable but through hard work and personal self-belief much can be achieved. As Winston Churchill said:
“Success is not final; failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts”.
Admin staff do not understand what education is and their policies do not support students.
Admissions told me "It is a private school and money is the focus" (paraphrased a little). Had to pay for 2 assessments even though first one was passed but they only give a few days validity for it so had to do another and pay 300 qar again.
I wouldn't advise anyone to go to a school which openly says that they put money before their learners. We know private schools are business but to be told this is different. Imagine what they will do to cut costs and how it will affect the kids as well as teacher well being.
