About Our School

Ambrosoli International School is like no other school in Uganda. We have an outstanding reputation for our sense of family and community and provide unique learning opportunities for all of our pupils far beyond the ordinary. We are an exciting, vibrant and inclusive primary school which has something to offer to every child and every family in our dynamic and diverse community.

We have approximately 270 children aged from 3 to11 in our school, from over 40 different countries.  We encourage them to be ambitious in their learning and believe there is no limit to what they can achieve. Our pupils are confident and successful because our approach encourages children to think for themselves, to question, to make mistakes and to be resilient – skills that will last them for a lifetime.

We currently follow the UK Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and 2  English National Curriculum and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).  Our high expectations are not limited to academic success. We want our students to develop a love for learning and the confidence, courage, compassion and conviction to look at the world around them and act to make it a better place.

We recruit outstanding teaching staff, specialists in their field, who support each student to achieve to the best of their ability. Success takes many different forms and we celebrate them all; sportsmanship in competition, the courage to speak publicly on stage for the first time and making friends with children from many different countries and backgrounds. We also believe trying and failing are vital ingredients for success in every area of life.

As a school which is accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and follows the IPC, we embed the ethos of international mindedness within our school, our curriculum and through a myriad of learning opportunities both in and outside the classroom.

Our school is located in a beautiful, quiet, green corner of Kampala, just outside of the city and on the edge of Lake Victoria. Opened in 1994 we have an excellent reputation as one of the most popular international schools in Uganda and are proud of the fact that all of the children at Ambrosoli are here because the school has been recommended to their families by existing or ex parents.

We hope that both existing and prospective Ambrosoli families and teachers enjoy looking at our website and would encourage families already in or considering a move to Kampala to get in touch with us so that we can meet with you and show you around our great little school. We look forward to meeting you.
