LICS is a CIS (Council of International Schools) and ISAZ (Independent Schools Association of Zambia) accredited International School in Zambia and follow the Cambridge Curriculum. We offer Pre-Primary, Primary and Secondary curricula, through to A Levels.
We have a diverse student body spanning more than 50 nationalities and a warm community atmosphere. Our local and international staffing compliment are experts in their professions and are committed to ensuring the optimal development of the student’s in their care.
LICS welcomes applications from students with all educational, international, cultural and religious backgrounds. It is the aim of the school to enrol a wide range of students encompassing the international educational spectrum.
The school appreciates that students from a variety of backgrounds, and with different educational needs will need careful assessment on entry to ascertain their own particular strengths and weaknesses as a learner. LICS aims to meet individual student needs through its student-centred approach to teaching. Admission tests are therefore administered to potential students to gain insight into the student’s individual abilities. The results of the tests are closely discussed by the academic staff, the respective Principal and, where required, the Student Support Services Department. Students are then placed in the most appropriate class for their age. Only in extreme cases may a lower or higher grade be recommended, and only if it best suits the needs of the child and meets the basic requirements of the LICS Admissions Policy.
We welcome you to make an appointment to visit the school and meet with our Admissions Secretary to give you the opportunity to view our facilities and experience the unique LICS atmosphere, whilst giving you an opportunity to have any of your questions answered.
