New Era Education launched its new “Uppingham Cairo” School in a ceremony attended by His Excellency the British Ambassador to Egypt, Gareth Bayley OBE, and the senior officials from the Division of International Trade at the British Embassy. The ceremony took place on the site of the new campus at New Giza.
“It’s fantastic to be here today to witness the latest stage in the continuing success story of UK education in Egypt. Uppingham is a school with a proud history and a wealth of experience, and I am delighted that they will be bringing both of these to their new school here in Egypt, Uppingham Cairo. I firmly believe that the UK represents Egypt’s number one partner when it comes to education. The demand is there among Egyptian families, and British schools and universities are coming in increasing numbers to bring world-class education to Egypt. I look forward with interest to the opening of the school next year,” Gareth Bayley, British Ambassador to Egypt, said.
The estimated volume of investments in the project is about EGP 1.5 billion, and the school is ranked among the largest educational projects from Kindergarten to the end of secondary education in Egypt.
The collaboration with Uppingham will allow local students to benefit from a truly international education, offering both International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma and A-levels, based on the values and ethos of Uppingham, whilst also absorbing Egypt’s wealth of history and culture.
Uppingham School, one of the UK’s leading and historic schools, will establish Uppingham Cairo, a K12 co-educational school, opening in September 2024. The school will be located on a 10-acre site at New Giza, west of Cairo, and will boast state-of-the-art teaching and sports facilities.
New Era Education was established in 2018 with the aim of providing educational services and managing schools on a world-class level, by establishing high-quality educational institutions in Cairo.
Uppingham School was established in 1584 in Great Britain and has been working to provide high-quality education for its students’ development with a focus on empowering them for a prosperous future.
