Welcome to Tony Blair International Academy (TBIA)!
TBIA believes that every child, especially girls, has the right to cheap and good quality education. This is because good quality education helps children develop skills needed to give them a voice, make long-lasting positive changes in their lives, which in turn will free them from poverty. As a result the academy’s motto is: “To Learn and to Live”.
There are several reasons why children miss out completely in benefiting from independent education in Sierra Leone today. From our experience, the main one is poverty. The costs of school fees, uniforms and books in private schools, are so high that not many parents can afford. TBIA proud itself as an independent school with a difference. The government of Sierra Leone does not fund independent schools because even Government aided schools leave a lot to be desired. Their academic performances have deteriorated especially in public exams. TBIA can and will lay claim to become one of the country's great schools. A school of unsurpassed beauty, it embodies the ideals of the Sierra Leone Enlightenment. At TBIA we pride ourselves on the friendly and supportive environment that is one of TBIA’s distinguishing characteristics.
