Al-Bassam Schools are interested in cooperation, external partnerships, shared responsibility, and partnerships with parents, civil society institutions, and national and international educational institutions to support student learning and well-being. For example; There is a partnership with British Schools so that our students can visit these schools to gain global citizenship skills.
Our schools – based on the school’s vision – organize regular summer programs for students each year at De La Salle Academy in Liverpool, UK. Its main objective is to develop concepts of global culture and intercultural learning in the English language and entertainment programs they practice in Britain with their peers of multiple nationalities.
Our school’s mission encourages relationships with multiple schools; We believe that our schools’ experience in establishing relationships with intercultural schools has influenced our students’ cultural and scientific achievements such as; Al Bassam Schools agreements with De La Salle Academy in Liverpool and Concorde Academy in Canterbury. Such agreements enhance the concept of global citizenship for our students in the learning domains: cognitive, effective and psychomotor based on the vision of our schools. It is a great opportunity to meet peers, learn about different cultures and share experiences, particularly in the English language.
Our schools have effective relationships with international schools in Britain, and this allows our students to visit these schools to acquire global citizenship skills to have great interaction with world cultures. There are effective partnerships with international educational institutions as follows:
