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.
In May 2016 ICS was granted membership to the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the school is currently seeking full CIS Accreditation over the next 12-18 months. Furthermore following an external inspection in October 2016, ICS was awarded BSO (British Overseas School) Status and rated as “a good school with significant strengths”. The school is also a full member of the British Schools in the Middle East (BSME) and a member of COBIS (Council of British International Schools).
Whilst the curriculum at ICS is British based, the school places great emphasis on being internationally minded and is committed to nurturing a rich and diverse cultural environment. Indeed, ICS today is, without doubt, one of the most international of all international schools in the region, with students drawn from more than 65 nations.
