About Us

Principal’s Welcome

Hello and welcome to the Cairo British School website! I hope that it will give you a feel for both the ethos and for the type of education we provide.

Briefly, we aim to educate the whole child: academically, socially, emotionally, spiritually and physically. Our teachers are encouraged to be aware of the “hidden curriculum”; looking for opportunities to integrate education for life into the set curriculum.

If you would like to know more about CBS, please email or phone us and make an appointment to visit the School where we will be delighted to show you around and answer your questions.

I look forward to meeting you.

Robert Swan

Who We Are

Cairo British School provides an outstanding environment where students strive to achieve their best, extending their journey of learning through engaging in a strong and compelling curricular and co-curricular program. They are taught by our dedicated staff who demonstrate a boundless commitment to each student, and together they help our students ‘find their place’.

Surrounded by tradition, CBS students enjoy a kaleidoscope of experiences which challenge students to discover their own path to success. Through the range of opportunities provided, our students learn to value diversity, develop a deep love of learning, a sense of personal responsibility and a commitment to justice. 

CBS students face the future with tenacity and confidence. They know that their school days have given them a firm platform and a conviction that they can make meaningful and lasting contributions to society in both the Egyptian and international arenas.


The school offers a broad and enriching program based on the British Curriculum and strives to achieve the highest educational standards in a happy, caring and supportive environment, with due emphasis given to the individual needs of every pupil.

CBS aims to produce students who are knowledgeable, reflective, able to communicate effectively, are enthusiastic about life long learning, are open to new ideas, are responsible and self-confident, and who are imbued with a sense of understanding the world in which they live and the inter-dependence of individuals, groups and nations and so promote cultural diversity.
