Living Our Beliefs – Education
Since the early 1990’s, the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church has established its own schools.
Brethren schools in the UK are financed by brethren through contributions and fundraising. Each school is registered and accredited by relevant education authorities. The National Curriculum is followed and teaching methods are approved by Government authorities. There are regular inspections with academic results significantly higher than the national average.
All teachers are from outside the PBCC community.
Brethren primary schools are also being established throughout the worldwide Church community. Particular care is exercised in the early recognition of special educational needs and teachers trained in these areas are recruited and programmes developed in line with the latest educational methods.
All curricula are directed to satisfy current educational requirements appropriate to the present era, including access to computer based material and computer literacy at all schools. However, careful attention is paid to ensure that material presented is age-appropriate and morally edifying and does not conflict with the Brethren education ethos.
All school leavers are given career guidance and encouraged to pursue further education. Our registered training organisations also offer an extensive variety of tertiary and post graduate studies.
We are sure that this short documentary will give an excellent overview of the full yet enjoyable lives that young brethren students lead throughout their education and studies.
