Welcome to Primary School

Welcome to TBS Primary Department

Welcome to the Primary Department at The British School, Al Rehab. I am honored to be the Head of Primary and pleased to welcome Mrs. Karen McNeely as Deputy Head. We have a wealth of experience joining our qualified staff from the United Kingdom and other British Curriculum schools around the world. These new members of the team will allow us to continue to provide your children with a well-rounded British education following the National Curriculum of England and Wales with the addition of Arabic and Islamic Studies, Christian Studies and Egyptian Social Studies.

We pride ourselves on developing children with a focus on “the 3 Rs” – Responsibility, Respect and Resolve. These core values allow children to develop confidence and achieve excellence academically and socially. During your child’s time in Primary, they will develop their independence as they learn to take greater responsibility for their learning and behavior choices.

Throughout the year there are events that allow children to showcase the skills that they have learned. This includes opportunities in Upper Primary to develop their leadership skills by joining the Student Council or applying to be House Captains. In KS2, we offer a well-rounded programme of After School Activities. Throughout the year we participate in a number of sporting competitions as well as worldwide competitions through COBIS. We are also keen to hear about any events or competitions that the children participate in out of school hours, as we would like to celebrate their success with the school community.

As always, we hope that we can work in partnership with parents to ensure your child reaches their potential. To achieve this, we ask that parents continue to support their child by listening to them read for about 15 minutes every day, encourage them to converse in English at home, allow them to take responsibility for their own belongings, and attend school events and parents evenings.

I wish every child at TBS the best of luck in the upcoming year. I am sure that pupils, staff, and parents will do their utmost to make the year a success.
