Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the British International School Cairo, a school where children are encouraged to value intellectual growth and develop a love of learning with a strong moral compass that will guide them for the rest of their lives.

A BISC education is truly international, shaped by the past, driven by the present but with a clear focus on producing the leaders of tomorrow. It is a progressive education that draws from the very best in international education. It opens up the world of current knowledge and provides children with the skills of adaptability, the capacity for innovation and the confidence to pursue challenging goals.

Each child's experience is enriched by participation in a broad co-curricular programme. The life skills and self-confidence developed from participation in sport, music, drama, the Arts and charitable endeavour support outstanding academic achievement at all levels.

Children benefit from outstanding facilities and are nurtured and guided by a highly qualified and dedicated team of exceptional teachers supported by a strong pastoral programme.

Students graduating from BISC go on to study at top universities around the world and are outstanding ambassadors for the school. They develop life-long bonds with the school, a reflection of the strong community spirit that characterises everything that the school does.

To really appreciate what the school has to offer and see at first hand children living the 'BISC experience', do come and visit the school.
