Having more than 500 schools with over 150,000 students, we continue to expand our reach in other countries including United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Philippines, Oman and Saudi Arabia, to meet the demands for quality education as well as to ensure a strong global presence.
The knowledge and skills-based curriculum derived from the UK national curriculum guides students from Nursery to Cambridge International Examinations (CAIE), qualifying them for the IGCSE, and O and A Level examinations.
Continuous human resource development
“At The City School, our motto is “I am to Learn” because we 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 face life’s challenges with courage and conviction.
For us, education is a pursuit that goes far beyond a qualification and we ensure that our teachers, staff members and students along with parents work together to achieve this goal.”
Dr. Farzana – Group Chairperson
We have moved with times, but we have not lost sight of our values and traditions.
At The City School we genuinely believe in educating “the whole child” so we provide our students with every opportunity to discover and build upon their strengths.
We also expect them to face up to the challenges of an economically globalized and socially changing world – one in which they will have to take their place as independent, responsible citizens.
Our 12 core values are:
We have a lowest student – teacher ratio, which ensures that every child gets the required attention and customized plan according to their needs. We guide our students from their Early Years all the way till their Cambridge International Examination (CAIE).
Our curriculum bolsters curiosity, critical thinking and creativity assuring that our students have the knowledge, skillset and values to prosper in their future.
Currently, our students are amongst the highest achievers on national and international levels. Our strength lies in continuous development and the integration of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in an array of learning programmes shows our conscientious efforts in that regard.
Moreover, we provide 120+ courses each year across the grade levels and enhance them in according to the cumulative experience of teachers and all the stakeholders.

Giving back to society through ethical and sustainable operations is a reflection of our vision which enables us to engage our students and employees in actively serving the community. Under our ‘Together We Grow’ campaign, The City School initiated numerous community service activities which include but are not limited to the following:
We are no strangers to the effect of climate change on our environment. Every year, majority cities combat smog and dangerous air quality levels that continue to have damaging effects on health.
With our ‘Together We Grow’ movement, The City School students have pledged to protect the environment to undo the effects of climate change. Our students are engaged in massive tree plantations across the country in collaboration with Clean Green Champion Programme by the Prime Minister, Punjab Horticulture Authority (PHA) and Waste Management Authority (WMA). Apart from our school premises, TCS students have conducted effective tree plantation activities in public parks, streets and fields and their efforts have been applauded by government officials on multiple occasions.
To achieve our mission of a cleaner Pakistan, The City School celebrates ‘Earth Day’ every year where at the same time, students across the country participate in a local city clean-up and placement of dustbins at public locations.
We, at The City School, believe it is the moral responsibility of every citizen and organization to move towards sustainable and cleaner sources of energy. Our mission of sustainability and reduced dependence on non-renewable energy sources is reinstated through our “Project Cool” that is aimed at installing renewable energy sources like solar panels at our campuses to minimize air pollution and greenhouse gases.
The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.

At The City School, we prioritize instilling values such as selflessness and empathy in our students. As an institute, we regularly collaborate with The Government of Punjab’s Literacy & Non Formal Basic Education Department to provide books, computers, furniture and other stationery items to the less fortunate schools and students especially in rural areas.
These schools are also provided renovation services to ensure a hospitable learning environment for our students. Our students are committed to spending time at orphanages and old-age homes as part of their community service hours. We are grateful to our students, parents, teachers and management for continuing to value this spirit of caring for the underprivileged.
As an organization we are always looking for new and efficient ways to optimize operations. Having a paperless work environment is hence one of our top priorities in the coming years. Digital alternatives to paper provide easier access to data, ensure confidentiality and most importantly reduce the carbon footprint for our planet- something The City School is openly advocating for.
The City School ensures:
The City School has had a well-established system of school inspections since 2002. Over time, the frameworks and processes for assuring quality evolved, leading to the development of a contextualised framework for SIQA, in line with international best practices.
