Concern for the well-being, welfare and development of every individual in the School community is a cornerstone of the Cairo English School. We recognise that every student will perform to the best of their ability if they are confident, secure, well-motivated and happy.We recognise that every student will perform to the best of their ability if they are confident, secure, well-motivated and happy. We believe that each student possesses unique qualities which must be recognised and nurtured.

At CES, we work hard to build relationships between staff and students based on mutual trust, respect and regard. This allows the school to produce reflective students who are kind and respectful.

Discipline is firm but not oppressive. We treat every incident on a case by case basis, ensuring every student is treated with disciplinary fairness and respect. CES helps students to recognise their responsibilities and encourages students to be independent and to take initiatives. At the same time, students are expected to work effectively as members of a team.

Every student is valued at CES. The school does not accept discrimination on any grounds and promotes equality of opportunity at all times. We are proud that every student at CES feels comfortable in the knowledge that there is a person or persons to whom they can turn for support, advice or protection. The school promotes an atmosphere of co-operation and friendliness, with an effective system for recognising and dealing with instances of bullying. Positive behaviour is always rewarded and negative behaviour always corrected.

All teachers have a pastoral role. CES recognises that a teachers’ role is wider than the delivery of the subject they are teaching or the activity they are supervising.CES recognises that a teachers’ role is wider than the delivery of the subject they are teaching or the activity they are supervising. Students (in particular the more senior students) also recognise that they have a pastoral role to play with their fellow students. In order to achieve this, a system of providing opportunities in taking on responsibilities and exercising qualities of leadership are offered from an early an age.

All areas of the curriculum provide opportunities to develop the above. Some areas however, provide specific opportunities in this respect. Examples of these would include PSHE, tutorial time, School Council, Drama, PE and Games. Decision making, morality, citizenship, developing self awareness and communication skills, taking responsibility, developing emotional intelligence and so on are all nurtured in these activities.


Our Aims

At the Cairo English School we aim to :

  • Prepare our students for adult life and enable them to become responsible, reliable, valuable and valued citizens.
  • Produce reflective individuals who show kindness and respect for others.
  • Develop our students’ ability to function as contributing members of cooperative groups and teams.
  • Enable our students to work independently and with self discipline.
  • Enable our students to develop satisfactory personal relationships.

Our Values

At the Cairo English School, we recognise and promote the values of :

  • Honesty.
  • Trust.
  • Coooperation, responsibility and solidarity.
  • Tolerance.
  • Respect for oneself, others and the environment.

These values and the School Mission & Vision Statements provide the ethos for the standards of behaviour we expect throughout the School.

We believe that the development of self control and self discipline and an acceptance of responsibility are essential to maintain a happy atmosphere. These qualities also enable individuals to grow. We value greatly the need to develop politeness, good manners and punctuality.

Teachers treat students with consideration and respect. As a result, we believe that students will learn to respect themselves, each other and the environment. We strongly believe in the promotion of tolerance for every individual’s race, gender, religion, age, lifestyle and point of view.

Teachers are consistent and diligent in encouraging positive attitudes and acceptable standards of behaviour.We recognise the importance of rewarding positive behaviour as well as the need to punish behaviour which is unacceptable.
