Dear Families,

I am delighted to extend the warmest of welcome to the Secondary School webpage and on behalf of the Secondary NCBIS staff and students, we hope you find our site helpful and comprehensive.

Our NCBIS website aim is to provide regularly updated information on the latest news and events in the school both academically and pastorally, as well as to share our aims and ethos. We recognise that the quality of learning, as well as our unique, friendly and caring atmosphere, can never be fully explained on paper, so we invite you to come in and meet us at NCBIS as soon as possible. By taking a tour of our campus, you will see our world class, global citizens in the making.  As the majority of teaching staff at NCBIS are also parents and international travelers, we understand that choosing the right school for your children is an essential part of any relocation, therefore you have my assurance that we will help support you in the most professional and understanding manner possible.

My wife and I have taught in the UK, Qatar and now Egypt, so we, as well as many of our teachers, can anticipate and also respond to the queries that you may have. The NCBIS staff body are always here to help, both as passionate educators and also as members of a close-knit, expat community, eager to help you settle in and enjoy this historic country and dynamic city.

Our pupils’ performance in public examinations at NCBIS is something that we are interminably proud of. Fortunately, year after year, we have received positive affirmation that our students perform better than ‘similar’ counterparts across the world and both our GCSE and IB results are well above the UK national averages. It is our belief that our strong pastoral program supports students at NCBIS to achieve this academic potential.

However, there is so much more to education and learning than examinations results. Simply browsing our weekly newsletters will demonstrate that our academic achievements and world class IB Results are complemented by the activities outside of the classroom. This is an incredibly industrious, innovative and progressive school; we excel in educating “the whole child” and in doing so fulfilling our key aim, which is “to bring out the best in everyone”, so that each and every student is fully prepared for the world of work or to continue their education at the next level. Our list of university destinations speaks for itself, but what matters most is that the children in our care feel safe, secure and supported and overall are able to thrive in a multi-cultural community that recognises and celebrates individuality and encourages tolerance and respect.

Whether you are a prospective or existing parent, I would like to invite you to contact us with any questions that you may have, and cordially invite you to stop by the Secondary School office to get a better understanding of how the NCBIS team works together for the benefit of our students and the wider international community. No question is too small and we are here to help you whenever you need us. It would be a pleasure to meet you soon.
