Principal’s message

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Grammar School, Dubai.  The students and staff of the school hope you find the information on our website informative and useful.

The school, formed in 1970, offers the British National Curriculum from Foundation Stage (EYFS) to IGCSE and ‘A’ level with the motto ‘Learning Today…Leading Tomorrow’.  We are proud that the academic achievements of our students’ match with our goal of academic excellence.  Our philosophy of continuous development embedded within a culture of professionalism enables all our students to succeed.  We are continuously striving to ensure our students achieve beyond their potential.

Our approach to teaching and learning reflects the best practice found in the United Kingdom.  Also as identified in our most recent inspection report, the ‘personal and social development of our children is acceptable across the main school years and good in Post-16’. Similarly, our students are praised for ‘demonstrating responsible behaviour’ across all yeargroups.  Mirroring this, our students also show acceptable learning skills and achieve well in English, mathematics and Arabic in the primary years.

Extra and Co-curricular activities are also important to us. We are widening our range of activities for students to develop their sporting, dramatic, creative and artistic skills. We also believe that all students should have the opportunity to learn about and support their local, national and international communities encouraging them to become integrated citizens of the 21st Century.

If this is the well-rounded educational experience you want for your child, please don’t just take my word for it, come and visit us and see the school in action.  We may be busy but we will always find time to welcome you.

Warm regards

Craig Shipton
