We are one of the longest established schools in Dubai and all of our teaching staff are technical specialists in primary education, resulting in a depth of expertise that is unmatched in our field. We strongly believe that outstanding learning is not just about teaching lessons, it’s about taking a holistic approach to the development of the individual child with a strong emphasis on personal growth. Our school is purposefully designed for young children, making the environment less daunting and conducive to a positive learning experience.

Curriculum Breadth

A rich, imaginative and creative curriculum, that encourages and develops every child’s natural curiosity and aspirations.

As specialists in EYFS education, the curriculum of the school has been specifically designed to stimulate each child’s own progression both academically and emotionally. To further enhance our curriculum, we are opening a unique STEM facility in September 2019, which has been created with the express intent of exposing primary age child to advanced technology such as 3d printing and robotics.  This purpose-built facility, with its specially designed creative learning zone, will enable us to deliver teaching in the STEM subjects in a way that will excite and encourage students to innovate and develop as they learn to cope with the demands of the modern world.

Extra-Curricular Programme

An exciting after-school programme that enables students to explore new activities and see what they are passionate about in arts, music and sports.

All of our children have the ability to excel outside of the classroom environment and our staff help each child to find their passion, be that on the sports field or in more creative areas such as the arts. To stimulate their growth, we offer an ever-expanding range of activities after school, allowing each child to expand their physical and mental skills.  The addition of the new STEM lab at the school will allow us to provide more after-school activities that are focused on technology, allowing them to explore the themes of Expo 2020 and its future legacy.
