What is Britannica® School?

The information in Britannica School is aligned to the national curriculum for England, Scottish Standards, IB and US Common Core. The platform is updated daily by a team of 100 editors and spans a range of media, including video, images and audio content for all learning styles. As well as Britannica's rights-cleared content, we have also collaborated with trusted partners to deliver academic journals, primary source materials, and a collection of the internet's most reliable websites.

Britannica School offers three different levels to support early years and primary, secondary and sixth form. In addition, various differentiation tools are built into the platform to meet the diverse range of student needs within a mixed-ability classroom at all age and skill levels. Students can adapt the reading-level of information within any text they access and are futher supported with read-aloud functionality, double-click dictionaries, and article translations available in over 100 languages for EAL pupils, meaning that every student is catered for.

Educators and students are able to save and view their favourite content from Britannica School, and organise them into Resource Packs within a personalised 'My Britannica' account. Within this area, users have the option to upload their own content such as worksheets and mark schemes, to personalise the content. For further customisation, the 'notes' section allows for simple communication between educators and students, making the 'My Britannica' area a great tool for remote learning and homework activities.

The Britannica School service is accessible both in school and from home on any device. We provide integration options for any VLE, most notably Microsoft Teams and Google Classroom, making it easier for you to implement Britannica in order to meet your school's learning strategies.

Recommended Usage

We recommend Britannica School replaces general internet searches within your school. Through daily use and interaction, students will be better equipped to research independently and become more knowledgable about the subjects they are studying.
