Royal Britannia Academy RBA
Our mission is to provide our school and local community with creative, intellectual and active opportunities for development and growth. We endeavour to use the school’s facilities and the community’s expertise to the fullest extent in order to bring the school’s mission and beliefs to life. We support the members of the RBA community in following their passions, developing new interests, and sharing their expertise with others. We believe that a robust extra-curricular program supports the development of balanced, life-long learners.
Our program runs three separate terms per year; each is approximately 8-10 weeks in length. We publish an online brochure with comprehensive information about each course for each term. All registration and specific course information is found in the registration section. (link this to the registration form for RBA)
Frequently Asked Questions
Below are the answers to a few of the frequently asked questions surrounding our RBA After School Activities Programme.
