Managing Director's Message

Welcome to the Modern English School Cairo's official website.

With great pleasure I welcome you to the official website of the Modern English School Cairo. As a new member of our MES Cairo family, I am particularly excited to introduce you to our recently updated website where you will begin to get a feeling for who we are and what motivates us.

Our school revolves around nurturing and guiding each and every one of our 2,000 + students - from 3 year old fledglings in Foundation Stage One, to 18 year old young women and men in their final year at MES Cairo as they prepare to leave for universities around the world . While at MES Cairo, and under the care and direction of our committed and qualified teaching staff, our students strive to successfully reach their potential in the four cornerstones of an MES Cairo education: academics, service, the arts and athletics. Indeed, I encourage you to visit our video gallery in order to see our students in action.

Within its British curriculum in the Primary School, and a choice of British, American and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme curriculums in the Secondary School, MES Cairo endeavours to lead with best teaching and learning practices in all areas, and a balanced and ongoing integration of technology implemented in support of each curriculum. This continual striving for excellence was recently recognized by a visiting British Schools Overseas Accreditation team who awarded our school with the designation “Outstanding”.

Now and into the future, MES Cairo’s future is indeed bright, reflected as it is in superb external British, American and International Baccalaureate examination results. It is also seen in the innovative teaching and learning taking place in our classrooms, where students are guided to take the initiative in becoming independent learners, on a multitude of service projects, in the art room and theatre, and in the gym and on the playing field.

Enjoy your visit to our website. I am so proud of the efforts of MES Cairo students, heightened as they are within the context of Egypt as a whole working toward its new future.

My door is always open should you ever wish to contact me.

With my best wishes,

Matthew Kirby
Whole School Principal
