Maximising the potential of future world citizens.


To provide an internationally recognised education to a culturally diverse student body in a caring and supportive learning environment.


LICS is a secular, non-political, non-profit-making school owned by the parents. We aim to meet the academic, physical, pastoral and social needs of our students by providing them with an all-round education. We seek to maximise individual attention for all students through our small class sizes, differentiated teaching and our Learning Support programme. LICS encourages the widest possible involvement of all nationalities and cultures and promotes respect for, and pride in, Zambia. We believe that it is important that our students, teachers, staff and parents feel themselves to be part of a lively and caring community.

Through our vision of “maximising the potential of future world citizens”, we have been exposing our students to a world of learning and an education that is rounded and all-encompassing; complimented by attractive facilities on 5 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds: music and performance rooms, ICT labs, libraries, a multi-purpose hall, a tennis and basketball court, 25-metre swimming pool as well as a beginner’s pool and a football pitch.
