UFS International Vision, Mission and Values

I welcome you to our website which, together with our Facebook page provides some insight into the happy and productive place that is UFS International. We are the only Cambridge Assessment International Education school in Eswatini, providing an exceptional education from Pre Primary through to Fifth Form. Our co-educational School is comprised of 650 students and represents in excess of 30 different nationalities.

UFS International has been in existence since 1963. With outstanding facilities, dedicated staff, an idyllic setting, and a rich academic and extracurricular programme, Usutu prides itself on the excellent, well-rounded education it provides.

The Governing Council, Head and Staff extend a warm welcome to all new parents and pupils. We trust that your child will find their school experience both enriching and rewarding and that as parents you will become involved in the life of the School.

The success of any School is dependent on the quality of its teachers. Teachers at UFS International are experts in their fields. They are dedicated, committed, empathetic and have the best interest of each pupil at heart. It is our firm ambition to ensure pupils who complete their education with us are exceptionally well prepared for the next stage of their education with a sound set of values and the strength of character to match.

You are invited to come and visit our beautiful campus. I will be extremely pleased to welcome you and to sharing more about our programmes and ethos. I know that you will sense the warm, friendly and stimulating atmosphere here and will want your child to become a part of our school community.
