With students that consistently achieve a high ranking in the country’s IGCSE and GCE results league table, Thamer International School (TIS) in Saudi Arabia is proud to be one of the country’s most prominent international schools. Academic Director explains that it’s down to the rigorous preparation that students receive. “We prepare our students so well for exam situations,” she says. 

“We start to work on the basics in pre-school, and continue right through until they reach years 10 to 13. Our students approach exams with confidence as they know how to revise. Every year, more than 80 per cent of our students receive A and A* grades in all their subjects in the CIE official examinations.”
