Founded in 1966 as a private, co-educational, English language medium
school for expatriate children, Traill International School's immediate
success was reflected in its growth in a few years from an initial
handful of pupils to full junior school status.
A steady growth in popularity and 'name' led to an advantageous
financial offer to move the school to a more extensive site and
infrastructure with the opportunity for further expansion and development.
By 1972 the Traill International School had well established junior
and senior departments, the final examinations for the junior school
being based on the Common Entrance for English Public Schools and
for seniors on the 'O' levels of London University. Regular successes
in external examinations of these institutions have been achieved
annually until the present day: the present enrolment of the school
is about 150 representing a broad international spectrum of students.
Emphasis is placed on computer studies. The school has its own sports
and games facilities and is also close to a national sports complex.
New buildings and facilities are at present under construction.
Established contacts enable it, on request, to assist in the selection
and placement of a student in an overseas school or university.
Class sizes at Traill International School are kept small - generally
not above 20, and pupil to staff ratio low. The latter are recruited
from the UK and are supported by suitably qualified local teachers.

the major religions is represented in the student body. The all
importance of spiritual values and the pursuit of them is stressed
through a program termed Education in Human Values (EHV). It involves
teachings, and requires practice and study, in the area in which
the essential precepts and moral codes of the world religions are
A Health Centre is being constructed at Traill International School

and other adults for health maintenance and promotion activities.
The centre will also include a doctor's surgery.
