Maadi British School, the forerunner of Maadi British International
School, was established in 1987. It serves both the British and international
expatriate communities in Cairo.
The Maadi British International School enrolls pupils from four
to eleven years from over 30 nationalities. Approximately 45% of
these pupils are British. Its curriculum, organization, ethos and
philosophy emphasise British heritage, customs and culture while
nurturing cross-cultural respect and understanding.
The curriculum is based on the English National Curriculum and,
where appropriate, pupils are encouraged to develop beyond average
National Curriculum levels. The school endeavours to ensure that
current practices in the UK are administered throughout the school
in a stimulating and caring environment by qualified teaching staff.
Good teacher/pupil ratios are offered and specialist teachers ensure
that all pupils have the maximum opportunities to attain their full
potential whatever their ability level.
Maadi British International School is accredited by the Worldwide
Education Service and has membership of the Incorporated Association
of Preparatory Schools (IAPS). It is regularly inspected by UK inspectors.
It is the school's aim to see that pupils are prepared for their
future education in both the private and public sectors, in the
UK and overseas. It provides a broad, well-balanced curriculum which
includes academic, artistic, physical, and spiritual/moral development
through the following: high academic standards and pursuit of excellence
in all areas; the acquisition of knowledge and skills relevant to
students' adult lives; a love of learning; questioning minds; self-discipline
and good study habits; the ability to work as a team, initiative
and independent learning; the ability to make informed, responsive
decisions; self-respect and a sense of individual worth; personal
qualities of imagination; an appreciation of beauty and human achievement
and a respect of other peoples, cultures and religious beliefs.
