All students study a broad and balanced curriculum, drawing on the very best of British, Jordanian and international education. Our senior students study for the IGCSE and also for the A Level, the gold standard of pre-university qualifications worldwide, but many students also take the SAT and commonly apply for undergraduate schools in the USA and Canada.

The school is located on a purpose built, semi-rural campus in Na’our area, approximately fifteen minutes from most embassies. Whilst our current facility is of a high standard, with specialist facilities in sport, ICT, Science and the Arts, we have recently undergone a major expansion project, which will see a brand new, state-of-the-art Swimming Pool, Sports Hall, Theatre and Early Childhood Centre opening over the next couple of years. The school is also renowned for the quality of its enrichment programme, and also for its focus on community service and global citizenship.
My sister and I attended this school way back in 1956-58 when the Head Mistress was Miss Nancy Webster. The school was much smaller then and Prince Hassan was in my class. School friends were very interesting as they were so many different nationalities. (I'm reminiscing today as the Duke of Cambridge is visiting Jordan today.)
I have joined this school in year 6 and left after my IGCSE's in year 11, and the time I have been there were unforgettable. They were so kind and friendly. The teachers there were so supportive and if you're thinking of attending the buses, than you will love it. I have made many friends in this school and I will never forget what they taught me.
