Regular school trips are made to areas of interest within Bahrain. Extra-curricular activities include Dance Club, Art Club, Cooking Club, Fun with Science/Maths/English, Choir, Drama, Music, and an after-school care program.

We have recently celebrated our 30th Anniversary and continue to be one of the leading schools in Alexandria and the surrounding area. We have close links with the British Consulate - our Patron is Her Majesty’s Consul General and part of our campus is in the Consulate grounds. The school is a deliberately relatively small 3-18 British international school (440 students). It is recognised by the DfE and is an accredited member of the Council of British International Schools (COBIS). It is a high achieving and forward thinking school which enjoys an excellent reputation. We are committed to ensuring excellent learning and teaching in a caring environment. You will find the school a rewarding and friendly place to work with good relationships between staff and students. We have a strong commitment to the professional development of all our staff. Foundation children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. Students in Key stages 1, 2 and 3 follow the British National Curriculum and in KS4 students study for IGCSEs and A-levels in the Sixth Form. Although our curriculum is based on the British system, we try to ensure that it incorporates the history, geography, language and culture of Egypt as well as having a strong international dimension. All students also study Arabic. Our vision is to provide a quality 3-18 British International education in Alexandria which is underpinned by outstanding teaching to develop knowledgeable, caring, compassionate, respectful global citizens and lifelong learners who will have both the desire and capabilities to help to make our world a better place. A large proportion of our students are Egyptian nationals but we also have a significant number of students from other countries, with over 23 different nationalities represented including neighbouring Middle Eastern/African countries as well as a smaller proportion from Europe. Alexandria is a bustling, friendly and cosmopolitan city on the Mediterranean full of historical interest. Life for teachers is relaxed and safe with a relatively low cost of living with a sufficiently good infrastructure, shops, cafes and restaurants to lead a European lifestyle. Most teachers are able to save at least 60% of their salary and at the same time enjoy exploring Egypt. Although from time-to-time Egypt appears in the media, you will find that living in Alexandria is in reality similar to living in any other big city with no particular security issues and a strong and stable government. The temperate Mediterranean climate in Alexandria ensures cooler summers and warmer winters than in several other parts of Egypt. In winter (January/February) there are some rainy days with temperatures ranging between 10 and 20°C, summers are renowned for the refreshing sea breeze, with temperatures between 22 and 34°C.

Our senior students have the opportunity to take the prestigious IB Diploma, an internationally renowned programme of study that opens the doors to the best universities in the UK and around the world.

The New English School was founded by the chairman Tareq S. Rajab and was the first private, co-educational day school in Kuwait to offer a British style curriculum from Kindergarten to A level. The school is an example of necessity being the mother of invention; when, towards the end of the 1960s a demand for education with English as the medium of teaching became apparent. In November 1969 a small nucleus of parents and students joined forces when the first classes of NES opened in a villa in Shamiyah. A purpose built campus was opened in 1974. Improvements and extensions continue to maintain an environment that allows students to thrive. The school serves both the local and international communities with children from over 50 nationalities. Close ties are maintained with the UK and International groups.

Opened in 2003, Cambridge English School, Hawally is a privately owned, non selective international school, offering the English National Curriculum and internationally recognised IGCSE and Advance Subsidiary programme to both Kuwaiti nationals and to the children of the large expatriate community resident in Kuwait. The school caters for a student population of approximately one thousand and nine hundred students inclusive of Early Years right through to Year 12. CES is an accredited Cambridge Examination Centre offering a challenging and balanced curriculum which prepares our students for universities both at home in Kuwait and abroad. Arabic and Religious education are part of the core curriculum from Primary right through to IGCSE. Staff are qualified, experienced teachers recruited from the United Kingdom and United States, Canada, South Africa. In Early Years we are committed to a quality of education for young children. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) and focus on three prime areas of learning. These are language and communication (LCD), children’s personal, social and emotional development (PSED) and on their physical development (PD). These two educational stages provide a solid foundation for the student to move smoothly into the challenges of a secondary education and the continuity that the school provides from Early Years to Year 12 means that we really get to know our students and parents on their educational journey. Students are assessed regularly to international standards and prescribed academic targets are set for each individual to ensure that we as a school can monitor each student’s progress against his/her potential. Student progress is closely tracked and intervention strategies are in place to enable our students to achieve or exceed their targets. We have a Learning Support Department which assesses all students to identify strengths and weakness and, if needed, provide additional support. In Secondary, our most able students are encouraged to join our Accelerated Programme which means that they can sit up to four IGCES in Year 10 if they wish. At CES Hawally, we believe that regular communication between school and parent is intrinsic to a successful educational experience. Parents and students have the opportunity to meet teachers twice a year at Consultation Days. Through our open door policy, parents are also welcome to meet staff after school if they wish to discuss any pertinent issue relating to their son/daughter’s educational progress. We offer a comprehensive after school club programme offering a variety of academic, cultural and sporting clubs. Departments are encouraged to undertake out of school educational trips, both local and international, to broaden the educational horizons and life experiences of our school community. Student Ambassadors are appointed to represent the school at in house functions and promote citizenship to our younger students as well as acting as role models of responsible leadership, a role which we hope they will carry into adult lives. Situated in the vibrant, cosmopolitan suburb of Hawally, the school is served by its own fleet of buses but is also easily accessible by private transport due to its proximity to a number of important roads.

The vast majority of teaching staff are UK trained and the school prides itself on ensuring it keeps up to date with the best international practice in education and learning. In 2001 the school moved to its current, purpose built campus in the Diplomatic Quarter of Dafna, adjacent to the impressive skyscrapers and business centre of West Bay. Here, under the ownership of the founder's son Sheikh Khalid bin Ali bin Ahmad Al Thani, the school continues to thrive, expanding and developing its excellent specialist facilities, which include science laboratories, ICT suites, a swimming pool, playing fields, and a large sports hall.

The International British/Dutch School was opened in 1967 in a two-room villa off Tahlia St. with the intention to provide an education to the young children of primarily expatriate British and Dutch workers, and those of a relatively limited range of other nationalities living in Jeddah. Soon known by its far more familiar title of Jeddah Prep, the pupils followed a largely British curriculum, and as the eldest children grew older, evolved to include the Grammar School which prepared children for O-Levels. In 1997, the School moved to its present site in Al Naim district of Northern Jeddah, close to the main airport and Medina Road. At this location, the School grew and stabilised at around nine hundred pupils, and following the opening of the Sixth Form in 2003, provided an education for children from the ages of three to eighteen. Girls and boys were and still are taught together throughout their time in the School, without segregation or distinction. Today, JPGS welcomes expatriate and Saudi Arabian families alike, with pupils from over fifty nationalities whilst retaining a family and community atmosphere. Approaching the 50th Anniversary of the School in 2017, JPGS is the longest-established British School in the region. The School follows a modified form of the National Curriculum of England and Wales and the curricular set by the Cambridge International Examination board for IGCSE and A-Level public examinations. The School is heavily oversubscribed with waiting lists in almost all year groups. Many of the pupils matriculate to British Universities after leaving the School. The School is a member of BSME and SAIKAC. JPGS is a friendly school where parents are seen as an integral part of the home - school relationships, the School is renowned for promoting traditional standards of discipline, hard work, good manners and courtesy to all members of its community.

The British International School, Jeddah offers a British-style education to boys and girls from Pre-school to IB (approximately pre-K to Grade 12) levels. The medium of instruction is English and over sixty nationalities are represented in the student body. Teachers are recruited from a number of countries with the majority being British. On completing Year 9, students prepare for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education. After completing their IGCSE students may then apply to continue at the school in the IB programme for a further two years of study. School terms are similar to the three terms of the UK system, with some flexibility to accommodate the Islamic calendar. Housed on a purpose-built campus, the school has two sections, each with its own individual buildings, play areas and administration. Whilst the school is of mixed-ability intake, new applicants must produce their most recent school reports, and undergo admission interviews to establish the appropriate placements, to identify any EFL or SEN problems, and to gauge the degree to which the school could accommodate them. Places for new external applicants to the IGCSE courses and the IB Diploma are few; students wishing to enter Grades 9/10/11/12 are therefore advised to seek entry to the school at an early stage.

Latifa School for Girls was established in 1982 by H.H. Sheikh Maktoum Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, former Ruler of Dubai, under the aegis of the Government of Dubai. From its inception, a key goal of the school has been to incorporate the best of British educational practice within a curriculum that promotes UAE values and traditions, alongside global awareness. To this end a British curriculum, modified to suit the cultural context and individual needs of students, is blended with Arabic and Islamic Studies, in line with UAE Ministry curriculum. Students sit GCSE, AS and A level examinations, as well as Ministry-accepted Arabic and Islamic studies examinations. All students leave Latifa School bilingual. The Headmistress and most of the staff are British, with an Arabic and Islamic Studies Department staffed by well-qualified Arab nationals. The School has an established reputation for academic success and personalisation to students' needs. Every teacher is expected to: encourage high standards in all aspects of school life provide optimum learning conditions for all students support and motivate students, teachers and other school employees promote a school culture which is collegiate, happy, purposeful and productive pursue their own professional development and contribute to the development of the School engage in learning-centred consultation and dialogue, both within and beyond the school Latifa is a through-school for girls between the ages of 3½ and 18, occupying two adjacent sites. Almost all students are UAE nationals and the intake is two-form and mixed ability. The intake is largely static with most students joining the school in Foundation School and continuing through to Year 12 or 13. In line with local government schools, most students leave Latifa at the end of Year 12 and go on to a 4-year American-style University course, primarily in the UAE, but also in the USA. A small number of students each year stay on to complete A Levels in Year 13, followed by university study in UK, USA, Canada or Australia. Whilst the School has placed students in top UK and USA universities, it also educates those with learning difficulties and is committed to providing a first-class education to all its students, whatever their abilities. Learning Support is provided where needed and an alternative curriculum is offered where this is in the student’s best interests. The School’s organisational structure incorporates the Leadership Team (LT), Heads of Department and Heads of Year in the secondary school, and Phase Leaders and Subject Coordinators in the primary school. The LT comprises the Headmistress, Deputy Headmistress, Senior Teacher, Head of Primary and Assistant Head of Primary. Whilst Heads of Department and Subject Coordinators are primarily concerned with academic matters, and Heads of Year and Phase Leaders with pastoral, there is clearly an overlap between the two; all staff are expected to work together in the best interests of the students. The school also has two school nurses, a careers officer and two examination officers to provide further support and guidance to students. Specialised administrative, catering, media resources, library and maintenance personnel at both sites support the work of the teaching staff. At Latifa School we believe the quality of teaching and learning and the level of individual care and attention each student receives are equally important; both are given a high priority. The School's vision supports these aims. Latifa School for Girls promotes respect, pride in our achievements and the desire to do our best. We encourage everyone to: discover and develop their individual interests and abilities; develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to take full advantage of the opportunities life offers; show respect for other people and cultures as well as for our environment; build on the values, traditions and culture of the UAE and the wider Arab world, whilst recognising our role in the global community.

The first JESS school in Jumeirah was established in 1975 and grew steadily over a thirty year period establishing itself as a premiere school serving the needs of the English speaking community of Dubai. Responding to growing demand, the school opened a new primary school and secondary school in September 2005 and now provides opportunities for pupils from the Foundation Stage– post-sixteen (Year 13). JESS is a fee paying, not for profit organisation that is administered by a Board of Governors and is staffed by experienced, highly qualified teachers. Facilities at both sites are state of the art reflecting the aims of JESS in providing a broad and balanced education focussed upon the individual pupil. The original site is continually upgraded to meet the challenging curriculum and opportunities offered to pupils on a day to day basis. The nine acre site at the Arabian Ranches features over 80 classrooms, Science & ICT labs, Art, Drama & DT facilities, an independent music facility, a 500-seater Auditorium, 1000sq metre sports hall, two temperature-controlled, shaded swimming pools, equipped playground areas and extensive playing fields. JESS has gained significant praise from recent inspection reports as well as achieving IB World School Status. It is also worth pointing out that facilities do not assure a good school. The greatest resource we have are the students, staff and good will of the JESS/Dubai community. We continue to recruit and retain staff of the highest calibre.
