Ambrosoli International School is a Pre-Primary and Primary day school established in Kampala in 1989, occupying its current premises in Bugolobi since 1991.
Ambrosoli strives for excellence in education in an environment that treasures and challenges each individual.
Children can be enrolled throughout the year, according to availability. Our Nursery class has a 4: 1 pupil/teacher ratio, Kindergarten a 6: 1 ratio and Reception class a 8: 1 ratio. Other classes are small to give full attention to each child. Our target class size is 16 pupils, and our maximum class size is 20 students.
Ambrosoli follows the English National Curriculum incorporating the philosophy and aims of the school. Subjects covered are English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, Art & Design, Physical Education, Music, Swimming and French. Computer Studies (ICT) and social development are integrated into the syllabus. The children also learn about Ugandan customs and traditions. We offer a wide range of after school clubs and we currently we host Italian, Dutch, French and Swedish lessons for first language speakers.
Ambrosoli teachers are chosen for their qualifications, experience and commitment to the overall education of the children. We have an extremely strong teaching and management team within the school and currently most of our teachers have a background of multi-cultural and multi-lingual situations. In each class we have teaching teams comprised of a class teacher and assistant teacher/s. We also employ specialist teachers for ICT, Music, French, ESOL, PE and Swimming. We run an ongoing in-service training programme and support staff to improve and develop their skills on a continual basis.
The school community is comprised of students, teachers and parents representing over 40 nationalities. We have a growing number of Ugandan students and over 30% of our students come from a dual nationality background. Our school community is very positive, friendly and supportive. We have an active PTA and each class has its own class parent representative. We are the smallest international school in Kampala and enjoy an excellent reputation in the wider community.
Each year we support a variety of community projects and we have a team of teachers who co-ordinate our community service links. Over the past year our key project has been aimed at expertise sharing by providing training in literacy teaching to local teachers and teacher trainers with a focus on our closest Primary Teacher s College and local primary schools.
