It is with a warm welcome that I would like to introduce you to the Modern English School Cairo. As a passionate leader in education, I am very excited to be joining this outstanding school as its School Director. It is a privilege to be at the helm of providing quality and memorable learning experiences for your children and to prepare them for their next steps on their individual educational paths. Educated up to master's degree level in English Literature and holding the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) I am an experienced senior leader who has had the pleasure of leading schools in the UK, the UAE, Denmark and now right here in Egypt. In addition, I have had the privilege of visiting schools worldwide in my role as an inspector for the NEASC, and more recently I have become a British Schools Overseas (BSO) inspector. My philosophy of education runs through the heart of everything I do; learning should be fun, children should be happy, and it is my firm belief that every child has the potential to change the world. At MES Cairo, we are driven by our mission which is to care for, challenge and inspire our students. Our passion is Education: we are preparing young people to embrace the challenges ahead of them, in a global society in which their future lies. The 21st century is a very dynamic time to be in education and the importance of inspiring our learners to embrace the challenges of an exciting, yet unknown future is something we take very seriously. Our students and staff are encouraged to work hard, think for themselves, problem solve, take risks, be creative, be innovative, and above all, be kind. Our teachers are a body of conscientious, experienced, and highly skilled educators who carefully challenge and prepare your child to be academically, socially and emotionally ready for their next steps. We have strong roots, an excellent reputation, extremely high examination results, and an unrivaled family atmosphere. We very much look forward to welcoming you to MES Cairo. Please do come and see us for yourself.
