We know that children who feel healthy, happy and safe perform at their best. As a school that prides itself on providing a fully rounded education, our pastoral care systems are at the heart of the way we nurture the individual qualities, aptitudes and personalities of every pupil. We build close and warm relationships with parents to support the education and wellbeing of every pupil and every member of staff at Uppingham Cairo has a pastoral role – from teachers to nurses, to cooks and counsellors. With the support of doctors, nutritionists, educational psychologists and other specialists, we create a web of care that carefully and kindly supports pupils throughout their time at school. Our disciplinary systems are integral to our pastoral support structures, providing pupils with clear and consistent expectations. We strive to address problems before they arise – and to provide compassionate care when it is needed most. In our family-orientated environment, there is constant formal and informal interaction between pupils, parents and staff members, creating a sense of mutual care, respect and trust.
Junior and Senior School pupils choose enrichment activities from an enticing menu of varied, challenging and sometimes unusual clubs, pursuits and experiences. From creative arts to academic clubs, from volunteering to fundraising, we provide a multitude of experiences to build character and to enrich our pupil’s lives. With an abundance of opportunity to find and cultivate new talents and passions, our pupils build confidence, competence and a sense of well-being as they pursue their personal interests from a young age. Whatever activities they choose, they have the opportunity to develop resilience, perseverance, commitment and focus beyond the school curriculum; the foundations for future success are firmly laid through their healthy, busy and active young lives. The options available include a wide choice of sports, from cricket, rugby, football and basketball to swimming, golf and tennis, alongside an eclectic programme of activities that reflect the interests and talents of our pupils and staff. These could include debating, cooking, clay pigeon shooting, ballet, engineering, Latin, gardening, board games, table tennis, croquet, cross-fit, debating, public speaking, chess, play rehearsals, climbing, a whole host of musical clubs and activities and yoga to name a few. Specialist coaching is also provided through exciting collaborations with the world’s finest and most prestigious organisations.
The widely acclaimed ‘Make A Difference’ (MAD) programme that is offered at Uppingham UK will be replicated at UC, giving all our pupils from Year 9 valuable opportunities to look outwards, to serve others, to lead and to take responsibility. Through the programme, our older pupils volunteer in the community, organise fundraising events for their chosen charities and give up their free time to help causes they care about. They work together to organise and manage community events and activities and create opportunities for local people and so much more – helping to prepare them for life beyond the safety net of school and enabling them not just to get involved, but to lead, to organise and to inspire others. By helping them to experience the joy of exercising selflessness for the greater good, we help our older pupils not only to unlock the potential in themselves, but also to unlock the potential in others.
There is so much for our pupils to enjoy and experience through our enrichment programme. In the Junior School, our activities encourage our children to simply be children, and to enjoy themselves in memorable and worthwhile ways. In the Senior School, our unique and extended enrichment and ‘MAD’ programmes provide the memorable experiences our older pupils need to develop into the confident, enthusiastic and compassionate young people we know they all can be. The skills they develop through the unique enrichment programme at Uppingham Cairo – from time management to empathy, from logistical planning to mindfulness – will stay with them for life, enhancing their health, well-being and value to society
