We are also very proud to be the oldest British school in The United Arab Emirates, established in 1963 by Sheikh Rashid, former Ruler of Dubai. The school is a not-for profit establishment administered by a Board of Governors and as such there is generous reinvestment in the school on both a long term and short term basis. This has ensured that the facilities in the school are excellent and we continue to make improvements. We enjoy an excellent reputation which we continually strive to ensure that we deserve. Academic success is important but we believe in the development of creative thinkers, problem solvers and children who know how to learn in an environment of mutual respect, enthusiasm and commitment. The children are given a wide range of opportunities to have as many irresistible learning experiences as possible in order that the whole child is developed.
