El Alsson British International School is the British section of El Alsson School, Cairo. Situated on a green-field site near the Giza pyramids, EABIS offers a high-quality British education to Egyptian and ex-patriate students from Early Years to A-Levels, in preparation for entry into universities in Egypt and around the world. Taught by well-qualified and experienced teachers, mostly from the UK, the curriculum follows the National Curriculum for England, with the addition of Arabic, Religion and Social Studies to meet the local requirements for our Egyptian students and a Foreign Language Arabic programme for our non-Arabic speakers.

Academic programmes are supported by PLTS/SEAL activities, which have a Leadership focus in the Senior School.

EABIS is one of the only Teaching and Examinations Centres in Egypt for Edexcel GCSE, AS and A-Levels, and students have consistently achieved very impressive levels of academic success. All Yr.11 students pass at least 6 GCSE subjects. Most pass 9 subjects, and half of all GCSEs awarded are at A/A* grade. After AS and A-Levels, all students go on to top universities in the UK, USA, and Canada, as well as in Egypt.

EABIS has purpose-built Primary and Secondary facilities on opposite sides of the campus, and a Sixth Form Centre was opened in summer 2007. There are specialist teaching areas for the Sciences, Art and Design, and Drama, and well-resourced Libraries and ICT labs in both Primary and Secondary buildings. Further facilities include sports fields and a medical centre.

A wide range of extra-curricular activities is offered throughout the year. These include sports, expressive arts and charity work, alongside clubs for a wide range of interests. Sixth Form students are encouraged to participate in our highly successful Leadership Award programme.

El Alsson also offers an American education in its NCA/CASI-accredited American section.
