Academic Rigour and Relevance

CIE British School believes that a broad base of knowledge enables students to make associations, thereby making them more creative individuals. We understand the importance of integrating isolated, content-specific knowledge with reallife situations for a more profound appreciation of the world.


The CIE Formula

In the CIE British Schools, students learn to lead and lead to learn. We do this by providing a learning environment anchored on the Lifelong Leadership Learning 3 paradigm represented by the formula CL3C for success.
