LICS was founded in 1993 by a group of parents who sought a school in Lusaka which offered an international curriculum, committed and talented teachers, small class sizes, individual attention for students and a nurturing environment where each child would have the confidence and opportunity to develop his/ her potential
The Pre-Primary School (PPS) encompasses Early Years (1-4yrs.) and Reception (5 yr.). The campus is located in two well secured areas with three playgrounds, separate from the Primary and Secondary Schools.
The PPS is committed to providing a child-centred, play-based approach to learning. Teaching and learning is focused on a holistic approach which aids in the development of the whole child socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively.
The Primary curriculum is designed to promote learning and personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the Curriculum, but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experience of the students. The aim is to teach students how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their true potential.
LICS Secondary School has over two hundred and ten students from Year 7 to Year 13. Small class sizes, combined with a very dedicated international teaching body, create a caring and friendly atmosphere and a positive learning environment. 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.
Independent Schools Association of Zambia is the organisation to which we are affiliated for many different programmes including the sports competition programme. LICS is a member with ISAZ and competes with other schools in Lusaka and Zambia. An annual timetable of events is set up for all age groups from U9’s to U19’s in a variety of sports.
The LICS-EOP is a Lusaka International Community School initiative through which the school community executes its social responsibility to the community of Lusaka and beyond. Through the LICS-EOP students, staff including the parents, collaborate in reaching out to, and endeavor to help develop capacity of vulnerable people and help improve the community through carefully planned community based projects. Through community service, LICS is able to advance its philosophy and project its institutional character as a community school.
