Welcome to The British International School, Madinaty, Cairo

Meet our Principal, Yasmin Tabram

Welcome to The British International School Madinaty, Cairo (BISM). I am delighted that you are considering our school for your child and hope that the information on our website assures you that BISM is truly an excellent choice.

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Which is why at BISM, we are committed to ensuring every child fully realises their potential and more. Through highly enjoyable, engaging learning experiences, our pupils acquire the skills and knowledge set out in the English National Curriculum and at the same time develop as well-rounded individuals through a rich programme of extra-curricular activities and opportunities.

All of our classroom teachers are UK-qualified and receive the latest training to ensure teaching standards are consistently high. State-of-the-art technologies are integrated into our curriculum and classrooms to allow pupils to prepare for the future. A range of rich academic resources complements our outstanding, modern campus. All of which guarantee every child in our care receives the best education possible.

Alongside academic progress, your child will develop into a responsible global citizen, guided by our school’s principles of honesty, integrity, tolerance and respect for others. Pupils are encouraged to be inquisitive and play an active part in their own development. They are challenged and given the opportunity to discover their abilities.

We work hard to create an environment where children enjoy learning and feel safe and confident to participate. We believe children should have fun while they are at school and that mistakes are simply learning opportunities.

Operating under GEMS Education now, the world’s largest K-12 education provider leading international independent schools in six regions globally, we assure you that your children will be provided with quality education that gives them the opportunity to explore their true capabilities.

I encourage you to visit our campus in person, and look forward to welcoming you and sharing with you the many achievements of our school and the children at its centre. I am confident that you will quickly appreciate BISM’s unique atmosphere and nurturing environment – and I want your child to become an integral part our community.


With best wishes,


Yasmin Tabram
