Arusha’s Saint Constantine International Joins the City of London Freemen

Saint Constantine, which happens to be the oldest International School in Tanzania is inking academic partnership with the City of London Freemen’s School in Ashtead.

The City of London Freemen’s Schools happen to be some of the most prestigious education institutions in the United Kingdom.

As a result of this relationship, SCIS students will now have the opportunity to study twelve more subjects at Advance-Level delivered by The City of London Freemen’s School.

Reports that were made available to the Tanzania Times reveal that from the new cooperation, the students of Saint Constantine International are now granted a choice of 24 subjects to choose from in their selections.

The new development comes at the time when the school is hitting 70 years in operation.

The students at the Arusha-based International School will now also get the opportunity to graduate as alumni of The City of London Freemen’s School.

They will thus avail themselves of all the benefits that come from that, including networking.

This would be in addition to being Saint Constantine International School’s alumni.

Students from SCIS in Arusha will also be able to attend The City of London Freemen’s School Summer Program at a significantly discounted price.

Have many more doors opened and widened for them to get into the best universities in the world, including Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard.

Located in the outskirts of Arusha City, along the main Dodoma Road, Saint Constantine International School is a co-educational, day and boarding, British-style, international school.

It has a roll of 580 students, among them 75 borders, from over 30 different countries.

The institution was founded in 1952 by the Greek immigrant community that originally settled in East Africa in the 1920s and 1930s.

 Saint Constantine’s original classrooms were next to the town’s only Greek Orthodox Church.

In the early Tanganyika days, the Greek community prospered in agriculture, mining and business, and would send their children to board at St Constantine’s International.

There they would get instruction in Greek language, culture and religion.

By the mid-1960s, however, it had evolved into an English-medium school and, in 1998, adopted the famous Cambridge International Curriculum.
