At FBS, we offer continuous education from Foundation to IGCSE/A levels under the umbrella of the British Council and Ministry of Education. The school is accredited by all UK International Boards of Examination; Cambridge, Oxford AQA, and Pearson(Edexcel). We nurture our children with love as we believe children are natural learners who want to develop cognitively, physically, and socially.

Type of Curriculum & Certificate
British – IGCSE
At Futures Language Schools, we believe in incorporating various teaching methods and approaches, to ensure that students receive a well-rounded education that emphasizes critical thinking, problem-solving, and cross-cultural understanding.
One of the key components of our educational philosophy is project-based learning. Students work on long-term projects that require them to apply knowledge and skills in a real-world context. This approach can foster collaboration, creativity, and problem-solving skills, as students work together to find solutions to complex problems.
We strongly believe in the power of collaborative learning to enhance student’s educational experiences. The school encourages its students to work in small groups to complete tasks and solve problems. Through group assignments and extracurricular activities, students develop critical interpersonal skills, such as communication and teamwork, while building a sense of community within the school.
We also place a strong emphasis on inquiry-based learning. This approach encourages students to explore topics and concepts, developing their understanding through investigation and discovery. Teachers provide guidance and support as students explore their interests and engage in critical thinking and problem-solving.
We recognize that students learn best through hands-on experiences that enable them to apply what they have learned in a real-world context. To support experiential learning, the school provides students with opportunities to participate in field trips, simulations, and other experiential activities that promote learning through discovery and exploration.
