We are delighted to announce the appointment of Mr. Stephen Priest as the Principal of Repton Cairo. Mr. Priest will take up the post in August 2024 following Mr. O’Malley’s planned return to the UK.

I am thrilled to be joining Repton Cairo as your new Principal. It will be an honour to lead and serve such a dynamic school community.

My wife, Tumika, and our son, Tristan, (aged 13), are also excited about joining the Repton Cairo family. Tumika is eager to engage with the parental community and Tristan is looking forward to making new friends and embracing all the opportunities Repton Cairo has to offer.

I believe we must have high expectations for every child, every one of whom can excel if we provide the pathways and support for their individual needs. It is our duty as educators to develop creative and innovative approaches to learning, in and outside of the classroom, ensuring our children enjoy their learning and are fully equipped with the qualifications, skills and mindset to flourish and realise their future goals and dreams.

I look forward to getting to know everyone in the Repton Cairo community and the wider Repton Family.


Mr. Priest is an experienced international school leader and has spent the last seven years as Principal of the British International School of Tbilisi (BIST) in Georgia, a Cambridge International school fully accredited by the Council of British International Schools (COBIS). During his time at the school, Mr. Priest has improved academic outcomes, introduced a thriving co-curricular programme, and steered the school through two successful accreditation inspections. He also led on the introduction of National Professional Qualifications for middle and senior leaders across schools in the Black Sea region and Mr. Priest facilitates the course for prospective headteachers and principals.

This programme, from the prestigious University College London's Institute of Education, allows access to some of the world's most highly regarded qualifications available to educators across the region.

Originally from the UK, Mr. Priest has extensive experience of international education. Prior to Georgia, he worked in Berlin and Kathmandu, as well as the United Kingdom. Alongside his role as Principal of BIST, he is also Chair of the Black Sea Schools Group, and is Lead Improvement partner for the Council of British International Schools (COBIS).
