Vice Principal
Senior School

Welcome to the Oxford family! Thank you for visiting our website with a view to learning more about the Senior School Community of Oxford International School (OIS). We give the utmost importance and value to our students and parents, and strongly encourage them to become the active part of OIS family!


It always gives me immense pleasure to work in education sectors and I am privileged to work with the teenagers and young adults to assist them to be their very best selves. Oxford students are being taught as individual thinkers, critical problem solvers and inspired learners as well as social contributors in national and global platforms.


I am responsible and accountable for ensuring a Safe Environment for each and every student and maintain a high standard of Child Protection Policy across all the campuses guided by the British Council, Dhaka, Bangladesh.


Our teachers help our students to be successful in Senior School by assisting them to understand what is required to be good learners inside and outside the classroom. Students have to undertake big challenges and need huge supports to grow as efficient learners, and we look forward to helping them maximise their growth at OIS. They learn how to recover from their mistakes, and how to set and achieve goals. They also learn to master the capacity of working individually and in a team or a group, speaking in public and being good at presentation. We have designed the Project Based Learning (PBL) and Research Assignments to develop our students’ interpersonal skills, social and emotional skills, and academic skills in order to prepare them for their success and to help them to be responsible citizens.


OIS students demonstrate success in all aspects of education and extracurricular activities. Achieving Scholarships in USA, Germany, Nepal, India and other countries helps them shine in their future and at the same time make them confident enough to bridge the Arts and Culture in national and international levels.  


We follow the Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) and our students are fortunate enough to learn with the guidance of an experienced pool of highly experienced and well-trained Cambridge teachers which lead them to excel in education throughout their lives. OIS students are well-known for achieving both world-highest and country-highest scores in the CAIE in different fields. A good number of students receive the Daily Star Awards every year. Besides, OIS scholars show their extraordinary records on placements in the world ranking universities every year especially in MIT, Harvard, Oxford, McGill, Princeton, etc. 


Thank you! Thank you very much!

Chief Coordinator, Senior School
Oxford International School

I started my journey with OIS on 1 April, 2010 as a Coordinator. And now at present I am serving OIS as the Chief Coordinator of Senior School.


The school has offered the GCE O & A Level curriculum under CIE. We have faculty members trained by Cambridge International Examinations professional development team. And for your reference all the labs for practicing Physics, Chemistry, and Biology including Computer Science are fully equipped according to the CIE specifications. We have set the classroom size for an amount of students ranging (25-30), to provide a close student-teacher rapport. Outside the classroom we offer a varied roster of Extra Curricular Activities (ECA). Teachers are encouraged to contribute to the ECA.


Our Vision: Redefining excellence in education.


Our Mission: Honoring our heritage & traditions, we offer innovative, quality education, pursuing excellence in every endeavor and inspiring all students to love learning for life.


Our Values: We fulfill this intent in our everyday activities through exercising:

  • Diligence – staying focused until goal is achieved
  • Excellence – Achieving the highest standards is possible
  • Respect – Acknowledging the worth of every person and what matters to each one
  • Cooperation & Teamwork – Sharing the vision and the effort to make dreams become reality
  • Care & Compassion – Attending with sensitivity to the needs and benefits of others and us
  • Justice – Seeking to achieve what is right & what is fair
  • Integrity – Consistently demonstrating high standards


Finally, I believe that our students have an individual and cultural set of experiences, skills and interests, which must be considered in teaching and learning process. We prepare young people to provide leadership to meet the global challenges of the 21st century.
