Why ICS... ?
ICS is a school with a bold vision and a big heart. The school is a world leader in the use of student-level data to ensure every child can tread a learning and wellbeing road which is personalised to their strengths and needs. One of the most international of international schools in the Middle East, ICS is proud to offer ‘the world in one classroom’, and, through its determination that all stakeholders #makethepoint in everything they do, adopts a trailblazing determination to engage with and serve its local, regional and global community.
The school follows a modified version of the Early Years Framework and the National Curriculum for England and Wales, adapted to the school’s international and local context. Whilst Year 11 and Year 13 students sit IGCSEs and A Levels, prior to applying to some of the best universities in the world, #earlyyearsup, the school’s innovative, Reggio Emilia-inspired approach to curriculum delivery, aims to cater for the ‘100 Languages’ of all learners, from 3 to 18.
As a not-for-profit school accountable to the very community it serves, it is able to sustain a constant and authentic orbit around the individual child at all times. A pioneer by nature, the school aims to hybridise the very best pedagogy and practice from across the globe, allowing both staff and students to enjoy the space to create, innovate and take risks. The school is proud to be genuinely inclusive, both on admission and through curriculum, learning and teaching, and is able to cater for the needs of a diverse student cohort of over 700 students, from the most able Oxbridge or Ivy League aspirant to children with mild to moderate SEND, not to mention a growing group of students at an early stage of their English language acquisition. The school also maintains a ‘wellbeing first’ mindset, and the team of counsellors supports teachers in ensuring that students feel happy and safe to learn.
