The overarching vision of The British Academy School Marrakech – BASM - is to bring the best of British Independent School education to Morocco. To help fulfil this vision, and uniquely so to Marrakech, our teachers are recruited having completed their teacher training in the UK. English is their first language, the first language of the school, and the English National Curriculum provides the framework for teaching and learning.
BASM is a young, modern, international school, underpinned by traditional values of respect for the democratic process in its varying forms, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. The school is non-denominational.
We are a family school, by which we mean we want siblings to study together in the same school and to feel equally valued, irrespective of their particular talents, interests or aptitudes, and we want parents to share in that one family school experience.
Our principal aim is straightforward. We want every child and young adult to be safe and to enjoy their time at BASM; to feel valued as individuals, in an environment where their talents can prosper to the benefit of the community, so that when the time comes to leave us, each will do so with confidence high, skills sharpened and personalities rounded. Underpinned by a belief that ultimately, life is about expectations; aiming high, having high aspirations.
