Since opening in 1955, ICS has continued to remain fully focused and wholly dedicated to providing the highest quality of British style education available.  ICS adapts the UK National Curriculum from Foundation Stage  through to GCSEs, BTEC and A levels.  ICS is a very well-resourced school with small class sizes (average 20) and currently has just over 700 students from Kindergarten to Y13 . 
Following an external inspection in October 2016, ICS was awarded BSO (British Overseas School) Status.  the school is a full member of the British Schools in the Middle East (BSME) and is also member of COBIS (Council of British International Schools).  In May 2016 we were granted membership to the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the school is currently seeking full CIS Accreditation over the next 12-18 months.
