Dear BICC Valued Parents,


I am so pleased to welcome you to the 2019-2020 academic year! I believe that our students should recognize that the learning process is a life long journey, learn to respond to social needs and be encouraged to respect and deepen their love to their country.


As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential.


We are committed to cultivating an educational environment that enables our students to grow academically and socially while preparing them to serve as leaders in their chosen professions.


Our children are our tomorrow, let them know that we are always there for them. Let us nurture them carefully and see them bloom into responsible, successful citizens and leaders who can build a strong nation.


I am looking forward to sharing what makes BICC special.


Best regards,



Ahmed Samir Zakaria

Dear Parents,


I am very humbled and honoured to be selected as BICC’s Principal.  This year is going to be an exciting period in BICC’s journey.


My priority is to focus on academic excellence (raise standards with quality staff, excellent delivery and challenging lessons) in addition to offering exciting, sought after, activities, events and trips.  Of course, this is in parallel with implementing strong discipline and values across the school.


“As a mother, teacher and principal, I absolutely understand your anxieties”.   


I firmly believe that every child can succeed and that cooperation between management, teachers, support staff, parents and extended family members, builds trust and self-esteem in students.  With my goal of raising academic standards, I am devoted to continually exploring new ideas to meet the needs of all students.  I’m here to understand everyone’s needs hence I propose to actively meet, listen, act and monitor.


“Yes, there will be changes; but change is key to progress”.


As some of last year’s staff head off in various directions, I am delighted to welcome Ms Kay Faraz as the new Head, of Early Years to Year 2.  And Ms Rifqa Hussein who both have a wealth of experience from the top schools in UK and Cairo.  The best teachers have also been recruited to deliver a diverse IGCSE programme this academic year.


“I wish to implement a ‘British Ethos’ into BICC”.


What does that mean?  British values and culture as far as it is permissible within Egypt’s culture; respect, tolerance, good manners, presentation, confidence, positive contribution, hard work and the ability to distinguish right from wrong.


“This year will be a period of transition; becoming ‘smarter’ in everything we do”.


We have a lot of work to do but I am excited by the challenge.  I can’t wait to celebrate our collective successes during the 2019-2020 school year.


Thank you for your support.


Warm Regards,


BICC School Principal
