Admission

The first and best lesson I learnt when I began my career was that "Everyone deserves a good education". Many families and potential students apply to MES Cairo every year and everyone is shown equal and fair consideration. It would not be possible, unfortunately, to accept everyone who applies. We make every attempt to ensure that the application procedures are as pleasant an experience and as an efficient a process as possible. To that end, it has become necessary to place clear and transparent priorities with regards to application considerations. We have provided them for you below in the  hope that it clarifies our procedures further. Our best advice is to apply as early as possible. Please note the date of our annual OPEN DAY event is in November of every year. You will find it to be a helpful and integral part of our Early Years Admission process. Thank you for considering joining our MES Cairo family. Along with our truly excellent Student Affairs and Admission Office staff, I look forward to personally welcoming you!

First consideration is given to those students who already have siblings registered in the school. Second consideration is given to students who apply from schools which offer similar academic programmes or follow a similar academic syllabus. Third consideration is given to students with the most academic ability keeping in mind space availability and the date when the application was first processed. All other considerations may or may not play a major role in the admission process depending on the individual case. There exists academic scholarships yearly in the Modern English School Cairo. They were established in September 1999. The idea was initiated by Mrs. Sawsan Dajani, the Managing Director, and approved by the school Board of Directors.
The scholarships are given to the students (one each from the British section, IB Diploma section and the American section) who :

  • Have an excellent record of consistent academic achievement
  • Have enrolled in the appropriate final year
  • Can show evidence of a commitment to MES Cairo school life: sports, drama, music, community work etc.
  • Have a record of exemplary behaviour and excellent relationships with staff and peers during their time at MES Cairo
  • Have a record of near perfect attendance especially at the approach to external examinations

All in all, the scholarship goes to a student who would be the best ambassador for MES Cairo.
