We are thankful to the education community for helping make our schools one of the best in the world.

According to the principal of one of Dubai’s most well-liked schools, inspections provide a valuable snapshot of school life.
During the inspection team’s visit, staff, students, parents, and governors demonstrated that the academic, social, and moral outcomes for everyone continue to shine in our day-to-day work at the school. “The main challenge for this inspection was the exponential growth in the school since inspectors last visited.” Since 2020, the number of students in our cohort has more than doubled, and nearly 70% of staff members have never been inspected.
“This intended that, in numerous ways, we were truly a different school and hence keeping up with the exclusive expectations that we did, while as yet driving enhancements post-pandemic, has been an extremely fulfilling, if strange, venture.”
