The School brings a unique blend of both British and Egyptian curricula.
Students are prepared from an early age to undergo these challenging curriculums which would help them to continue their educational pathway in Egypt or abroad after graduating.
Cambridge International Curriculum:
The curriculum's structure is known as the Cambridge Pathway. It consists of four stages and gives students a clear path to educational success from the age of 5 to 19.
This Curriculum includes mainly the study of key subjects: English, Math, and Sciences.
To help build a "global perspective" foundation for a successful future, we offer learners the study of human culture and society, through subjects such as art, and foreign languages: French and German are offered from the Foundation stage.
We also care to blend the study of international Social Studies presented in History and Geography (available in KS1 and 2) parallel with the Ministry of Education courses including Arabic Social Studies, Civics, and Citizenship beside the Arabic and Religion subjects (Core).

Physical education is a course that supports progression to the next stage of the Cambridge Pathway. It is a vital part of a balanced school curriculum. Regular exercise improves physical and mental health as well as its positive impact on academic performance across the curriculum.
Establishing a good pattern of exercise provides learners with the foundation of an active and healthy lifestyle. Activities are designed to promote learners’ confidence, self-esteem, cognitive abilities, and social skills through an enriched program of games, team sports, gymnastics, and dance.
Drama (Helen O Grady)
Drama enhances verbal and nonverbal expression of ideas. It improves voice projection, articulation of words, fluency with language, and persuasive speech. It provides real-world scenarios to help students learn skills used in real-world situations (negotiation, debate, teamwork, cooperation, persuasion) and when used across the curriculum it actively involves students in their learning.
Art gives learners a platform to express themselves, sparking imagination, and creativity and developing transferable skills. Students explore and push boundaries to become reflective, critical, and decisive thinkers. They learn how to articulate personal responses to their experiences through a broad range of investigative, art-making, and reflective activities. These include study areas, for example, several paintings, model making, applying the curriculum content to the local context, and using the resources available.
Fosters creativity and builds confidence. It helps learners to express themselves and shows them the importance of communication as they learn to connect with others., Learners explore music as performers, composers, and informed listeners. They make, understand, and appreciate music from different cultures, times, and places.
