Our curriculum is based on a solid academic foundation, but has many added aspects aimed at enhancing the all-round preparation of all our students for success in the next phase of their studies; university and careers.
The curriculum of the school is organised so that students are stimulated, encouraged and challenged to develop their individual potential and personality to the full. Through effective planning and excellent teaching by highly qualified and enthusiastic subject specialist teachers, pupils are helped to:
- Gain a joy and commitment to learning that will last a lifetime.
- Develop the essential 21st Century skills they will need for future success.
- Develop the attitudes, understanding and skills to become highly competent independent learners.
- Foster their creativity and develop lively, enquiring minds.
- Develop personal values, qualities and attitudes and be respectful of other people and the views and opinions of all citizens in our global world.
- Develop an appreciation and concern for the environment.
- Work co-operatively with others.
- Achieve beyond their potential – to outperform!
Our schemes of work are based on the National Curriculum of England, delivered in English and adapted to take into account our international context and local circumstances.
Being a Dubai school, Arabic is an important language for our students to learn and Islamic Studies is delivered to our Muslim students.
Both Arabic and Islamic Studies courses are structured based on Ministry of Education curriculum and is also segregated into Arabic A for Arabs, Arabic B for non Arabs, Islamic Studies A for Arab muslim students and Islamic Studies B for non Arab muslim students.
We aim to put the students at the centre of their own learning and place great emphasis on nurturing skills and attitudes such as resourcefulness, resilience, teamwork, confidence, communication, motivation, personal effectiveness, creative thinking and problem solving . . . the so called soft skills.
