His Excellence the British Ambassador in Egypt Mr John Casson has marked the launch of BICC at a cermony hosted at the British Embassy in Cairo on Wednesday the 11th of May 2016.

Mr Casson has expressed his country's support quoting " Schools like BICC show that the UK is the “education nation” and can deliver world-class education. He reconfirmed his committment to working with Egyptian policymakers to encourage deep-seated change in the Egyptian education system, so that in the future every young Egyptian boy and girl gets the education, skills, and the opportunities they deserve.

During the cermony, school principal Mark Colston said: "This school is a marriage of minds and hearts ensuring our children have the rooted confidence and the thirst for knowledge and innovation needed to embrace the challenges and opportunities of our modern, fast changing world. We seek to provide the environments children of all ages need to develop their best selves – to be the socially responsible, creative thinkers we need as our future leaders."

Bridge Education, the private UK company that manages the school, promises that BICC will offer high quality teaching, outstanding learning opportunities, as well as world-class facilities such as a multi-purpose theatre and a state of the art semi-Olympic swimming pool.

The school, which is set to open on 5 September 2016, will implement the Cambridge International Curriculum through primary and secondary levels, meaning that students will sit internationally recognised examinations such as iGCSEs and the International Baccalaureate.
