Our Education Programme and Philosophy

At UFS lnternational, we proudly follow the Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) programme in the Primary and High School, and the Early Years Foundation Stage in our Pre-Primary.

The holistic education offering is complemented by extensive cultural, sporting, service learning and leadership development programmes, and is underpinned by a strong emphasis on pastoral care. Opportunities for immersion in the local context are provided through subject choice.

Our comprehensive curriculum encourages our students to become self-aware, locally aware, globally aware, and to maximise their potential for success in a rapidly changing world.


Our School Motto Aim High Semper Sursum

Acceptance - Integrity - Manners - Happiness - Independence - Generosity - Honesty

Safeguarding our Children

UFS International is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff, governors and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Student Safeguarding Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.
