Mr Topliss Elected as the new Country Rep. for BSME

We are pleased to announce that Mr Matt Topliss (British School Principal) has been elected as the new Country Representative for Egypt for the British Schools in the Middle East (BSME) organization. This role will enable Mr Topliss to work closely with BSME schools in Egypt and across the Middle East whilst still undertaking his Principal role in the British School at El Alsson. The BSME organization provides networking and training support for teachers and a number of student events and activities across all areas of school life, including the arts, PE and Sport, literacy, numeracy and the sciences. The organization also advises schools on examination preparations, child protection, provision for SEN and gifted and talented, technology and the development of leadership in schools. The BSME network in Egypt has grown strongly in recent years and Mr Topliss aims to collaborate with other leading British international schools across Egypt to continue this partnership. CONGRATULATIONS MR TOPLISS

Beauty and the Beast Production Announcement

Dear Students and Parents,

As you are well aware, due to COVID-19, we have been unable to run any Performing Arts activities in recent months. As this is the case, we have unfortunately had to make the difficult decision to postpone the Senior Production of Beauty and the Beast for this academic year. Despite the amount of effort and work students have put into the production so far, their safety is our main priority. Therefore it would not be sensible to continue rehearsals at this point.

However, we will continue with this production as soon as we are entirely confident that it is safe to work together again. Potentially we are looking to move next year’s Middle School December show 2021 to make room for Beauty and the Beast in the new school year.

We appreciate all the hard work that students have put into this production so far, and we look forward to continuing rehearsals in the future.

If any student has concerns or questions they can get in touch with 

Mr. Phil (, 

Mr. Carr (American:, or
