We opened in 2005 in a brand new building on the outskirts of Alexandria; away from the noise and pollution of the city. There is a lush, green playing field to the front (we are the only British School in Alex with their own field) and an on site swimming pool is planned for 2008.
Having a background in both Independent schools in the UK and international schools worldwide, my aim as headmaster is to bring the traditions of the best British Independent schools to Alexandria, to deliver an education suitable for an international and Egyptian cliental.
We have been registered, approved or affiliated with all of the following organisations: DFES (UK), Egyptian Ministry of Education, ECIS, CIS, WES and NAAS.
The curriculum is based on the national curriculum of England and Wales, but adapted to meet the educational needs of pupils in Egypt and to reflect trends in international education. The school follows a path leading to IGCSE and international A level examinations. We are the only British School in Alexandria to guarantee to have only British, or Irish, trained Staff. There is a maximum class size of 18.
We have the most technologically advanced classroom in the whole of Alexandria, being the first to introduce Promethean Interactive Boards. We have modern, well equipped Science rooms, a library and dedicated ICT suite. All classrooms are well lit. The school is continuing to grow in physical size and when the final floor is completed all class rooms will have been equipped with quiet air conditioning.
We follow a standard prep school timetable with Christmas, Easter and summer holidays typical of most UK independent schools.
The educational ethos of the whole school seeks to develop all students as unique individuals, recognizing their differences and individual talents and developing their physical, mental, spiritual and emotional wellbeing.
