When the BSME CPD Programme began in earnest, in 2011, we had only half a dozen schools officially listed as ‘host schools’. To date, thirty-five schools have already hosted for us and we now have forty-seven schools (approximately 65% of the total membership!) registered as willing hosts. That is a fantastic statistic and a real testament to the credibility of the the rapidly growing CPD Programme.

Such keen support is not only much appreciated, it is also essential to the success of the programme. Without it, the BSME CPD Programme simply could not run in the manner in which it does currently. Our sincere thanks go to all our host schools across the region.

How should host schools book their free places?

Booking Form - Host School Free Place

Please email this form to Sam via cpdassistant@bsme.org.uk before the course booking deadline. Please DO NOT register your free places online - all delegates registered online will be charged. Should host schools wish to book any additional (chargeable) places, they should do so on-line, in the ‘Programmes and Courses’ Section of the CPD area.

Kind Regards,

BSME CPD Coordinator

The British International School Cairo is a long established and reputable academic school in Egypt and the region. BISC has an uncompromising commitment to delivering the highest standards of education. Academic accomplishments are high, placing the school in the first division of independent and selective schools. The school teaches the British National Curriculum for 3-16 and the International Baccalaureate Diploma at 16-18. With the hallmarks and expectations of a first-class UK independent school. Staff are well qualified and experienced, the vast majority of them are recruited from the UK.

There is a strong and supportive tutorial system for academic and pastoral development. BISC is a flourishing and highly successful international co-educational school, drawing students from diverse nationalities and backgrounds. It is dedicated to the principles of a broad education in its academic curriculum and varied activities programme. It is a non-denominational school, welcoming students from all faiths and traditions and embracing the principles of openmindedness and understanding.

In September 2008 the school successfully relocated in the upwardly mobile district of Beverly Hills, located to the west of Cairo. This is a flagship build, on a 65,000m2 campus, giving the school some of the best educational facilities in the region. The new campus is breathtaking in its sheer scale and quality. Each classroom is equipped with leading-edge technology, interactive whiteboards and ergonomically-designed furniture. Within the school, there are six science labs, three ICT suites and two high-tech libraries, all UK designed, equipping the school in a way that befits its setting.

There are dedicated areas for the creative arts, a six hundred and sixty seat theatre, specialist play areas, six tennis courts, two swimming pools, two football pitches, and basketball courts, a double-sized gymnasium, a fitness suite, and running track. The School is a not-for-profit organisation and a member of BSME, COBIS, ECIS and IAPS.
