THE BRITISH ACADEMY -School Tour Specialists

Travel and Sport



The British Academy  is a vibrant, young international schools group with a focus to establish ONLY Cambridge International Schools.

Currently with two International schools in the fold with more expected to join in 2016:

Brooklyn International School in Pretoria.

Knysna International School in the Garden Route.

Operating under CIE license ZA123, it has distinguished itself through the quality of its academic programme as evidenced in numerous ‘highest mark in South Africa’ awards over the last few years.

In 2012, the original campus opened its doors in Centurion, initially focusing on part time Cambridge courses and Extra Lessons. However, by January 2013 the demand for full time tuition grew to such an extent that full time courses became part of the standard curriculum.  Scarcely a year later TBA have produced at least five national 1st places and numerous A* results underlining the robust nature of its academic program.

In October 2013 TBA acquired its flagship Brooklyn Campus in Pretoria and subsequently moved to its current location early in 2014.  The demand for a highly focused, but fun (!), academic environment not only meant expansion to a larger and better equipped campus but also extending the courses offered to Foundation Level (GR8) and IGCSE-1 (GR9) to ensure the full ‘high school’ curriculum is covered.


The vision of The British Academy is simple: provide the best learning environment where students can achieve their highest possible academic results.

In a society where even private tuition does not guarantee a quality education our basic premise is that world class results start with world class teachers.

Our vision would see the bar for private tuition raised to a new level where actual results are the only benchmark of excellence.
