"The vision set by British Council Partner School Hera British School made my child more reflective, innovative, confident, engaged and responsible. He became more interested in making himself better each day and be responsible, which made him a confident learner. In the UK International School Qualifications system, my kids were taught to learn by questioning, problem-solving and creative thinking rather than through the mere retention of facts, giving them analytical and creative thinking skills that they will need in the working world.”
Mrs. Fatma Abdel-Badei Elshazly, Parent from Hera British School Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
