The City School Overview and History

Established in Karachi in 1978, The City School is today one of the largest private school networks in Pakistan with branches in all the major cities across the country. It currently has 185 schools in 52 cities with over 126,000 students in 458 owned and franchised schools. The City School continues to expand its reach to meet the demands for quality education. The knowledge and skills-based curriculum derived from the UK national curriculum guides students from Nursery to Cambridge International Examinations (for the 16 and 18 year age group), qualifying them for the IGCSE, and O and A Level examinations. The uniform implementation of the curriculum gives parents, students, and teachers the advantage of a smooth and efficient transfer from one school to another within the system.[2] TCS Overview

Academic Philosophy

Graduates from The City School secure positions in top universities worldwide. Our students, according to Cambridge International Examinations annual results analysis, are amongst the highest achievers in their city, their country and, in some cases, in the world. The curriculum encourages a student-centred approach where learners have an active role in their learning process and develop the skills and ability to make a significant contribution to society. Its particular strength lies in the integration of digital media and ICTs in an array of learning programmes. The City School provides more than 120 courses each year across the age ranges and revises them in accordance with the cumulative experience of its teachers and pupils. The selection of teachers is based on their experience as curriculum developers and syllabus writers. In addition, we regularly appoint curriculum consultants from the UK to lead teams of The City School teachers in revising their curriculum and syllabi. The City School curriculum and methodology is designed specifically to ensure a smooth transition in teaching and learning from the primary sector through the middle years and on to the final two years of the public examinations’ syllabi. Digital media and ICTs in The City School Network are shaping the methodology of delivering online education and adding efficiency, convenience, interactivity and outreach to the array of learning programmes we offer. The City School has taken the initiative of implementing a state-of-the-art Classroom/ Learning Management System capable of providing its students with academic resources anytime, anywhere, and in any circumstances. The City School promotes and encourages co-curricular activities in all of its campuses. Students are encouraged to learn new skills, take responsibility, assume leadership, work under a leader, organise events, conduct programmes and experience real-life situations.[3] TCS Philosphy Overview

Group Chairpersons Message

Millennia ago, Socrates claimed that, “To say ‘I know’ is to close one’s mind to knowledge”. Channelling that spirit at The City School, our motto is ‘I Am To Learn’, because we too believe that learning is limitless. We aim to develop each one of our students into true learners, individuals who always seek to broaden their perspective and to face life’s challenges with courage and conviction. For us, education is a pursuit that goes far beyond a qualification. While we aim to help our students excel in the course they are studying, we also hope to instil in them a thirst for learning throughout their lives.  At The City School, our teachers, students, and parents work together to realise this goal.[5]  Group Chairperson’s Message

School Inspection

The Department of Inspection and Quality Assurance (DIQA) was established in 2002. Since that time, the department has gone through a number of phases. It has moved from quality control and compliance to quality assurance and school improvement. Though mainly grounded in open inquiry, as are OFSTED Inspections, the system is unique and very pertinent to The City School Network. The framework of school inspection ascribes special significance to the rigour and quality of school self-review and subsequent school improvement planning. The Inspection Department aims to provide high level evaluation to ensure high quality education for all students in The City School.

Teams of inspectors

Teams of inspectors visit the schools and conduct an in-depth study of the activities that take place in the schools before making their assessments. Schools are expected to measure up to what is considered to be good practice at The City School (as detailed in the Handbook of School Inspection and Quality Assurance). The main focus of inspection is on student engagement, progress and achievement; quality teaching and curriculum implementation; a safe and caring environment; support and governance provided by the Regional and the Head Offices, and the role of the Head as an instructional leader. The assessment of a school is based on a variety of telling evidences that are collected by observing the lessons, examining the school environment and available resources, talking to students and teachers and analysing the relevant documents. Parents, being the third and complementary side of the triangle of learning, are also consulted and spoken with, to ascertain their expectations of the school. All information collected is recorded, analysed and compiled into a School Inspection Report. The first draft of the report is sent to the School Head who confirms that the facts mentioned in the report are correct. After confirmation of the report, copies are forwarded to the Regional Directors and senior management, who in turn are expected to initiate follow-up action for maintaining their areas of strength and overcoming any inadequacies mentioned in the reports. The schools are aware of this procedure and have great faith in the inspection process to generate an unbiased and comprehensive report of the school activities. School inspection reports provide schools with an external perspective of how they are performing so that they can set requisite targets and strive to achieve them before the next inspection cycle begins, as they are aware of what the inspection teams will look for. The schools are also supported to strengthen their self-review practices which help them to identify areas where improvement is needed and plan accordingly. The Regional Office academic staff supports the School Heads. All inspectors are senior academicians who are trained in the school inspection procedures and practices. Their professional development is given utmost importance and in-house training is organised during every academic session. The inspectors are also engaged in professional debate to enhance their analytical and evaluative skills.[6] TCS Inspection

Alumni Overview

Since the establishment of The City School in 1978, the TCS Alumni community has seen an exponential growth.  Throughout Pakistan and all over the world, TCS Alumni are making meaningful contributions to the societies they live in. The City School recognises the TCS Alumni community as a highly valuable asset, as it is the manifestation of the school’s excellence and competence. The TCS Alumni Association aims to cultivate a lifelong connection between the TCS Alumni and the school. In this regard we aim to provide opportunities for TCS Alumni to reconnect with their alma mater, to recognise their contributions towards the professional world, and encourage them to be involved with TCS in building a stronger alumni community.[7] TCS Alumni  

Academic Development

At TCS, academic and career guidance focuses on having up-to-date information and developing resources for higher education opportunities and career options, making important information more accessible. Each senior branch in the network has a guidance counsellor who can help you with these choices whether it is about local or international study, or career choices.[8] TCS Career


Students and their experiences are at the heart of The City School’s vision which defines our goals and ambitions. Students deserve a high quality education with an accessible and innovative curriculum. We believe that education should enhance students’ abilities to explore and question the nature of phenomena in the world around them. For all school years, we provide a knowledge and skills-based curriculum framework, which shares some common aims and objectives with the UK national curriculum for England. Our curriculum builds a sound foundation for future learning. The curriculum delivery methodology in the secondary school classrooms encourages a student-centred approach that, in keeping with Cambridge International Examinations’ (CIE) expectations, puts “the student at the heart of the learning process enabling them to play an active role in their own development”. Our expectation, therefore, is that when students have completed their secondary school studies, they do not have just a mastery of content but are also able to analyse, look at texts critically, make connections between subjects, and write effectively. With such skillsets and values, our students are valued highly by universities and employers in Pakistan and abroad. TCS curriculum documents for various subjects adopt a skills-based approach to teaching and learning. The curriculum, as such, is spiral in nature, i.e. the same concepts and skills will be taught at various times across the grades, but with increasing levels of complexity and sophistication as we move up.[9] TCS Curriculum
