Our Campus

Our ultra-convenient location, our modern campus and the wide range of high quality facilities we have access to make The English College a highly sought after school – not just in Jumeirah, but for families across Dubai.

We are a school with a rich heritage; the secondary school was founded in 1992. We continue to invest and improve both the secondary and primary school sites, ensuring our learners enjoy a positive and engaging learning environment.

We are incredibly lucky to have a brand new secondary building, including state-of-the-art facilities. We have brand new science labs, complete with specialist equipment. Music practice facilities mean that students can develop their musical skills in groups, individually or as a band. Two drama studios, complete with professional sound and lighting equipment, allow students to show off their performance skills. A state-of-the-art gymnasium, swimming pool (Primary), sports hall, netball courts and a Multi-Use Games Area allow our sports men and women to develop their sporting prowess and compete with the best in the region. We are incredibly proud to be the only school in Dubai to have a real grass pitch that showcases the best of our students’ sporting talents. Our Sixth Form terraces and common room overlook the Dubai skyline with an impressive view of the Burj Khalifa. Our secondary library allows students to engage in their own quiet reading and reflection in a comfortable setting, conducive to both independent and group work.
