Working With Us


We are one of the very few true heritage schools in the United Arab Emirates, having been founded in 1992. End of 2017, part of the secondary building was demolished to make room for our new, state-of-the-art building, which opened in August 2020 to accommodate the needs of today’s modern learners.

We are dedicated to the growth and professional development of a highly experienced, skilled and qualified team of teachers and support staff. By joining us you will become part of a closely knitted, happy and motivated community who live and breathe the school’s mission, vision and core values. Most of our team are coming from abroad – predominantly the UK - and have settled in Dubai for a number of years. Dubai and the United Arab Emirates have a lot to offer with plenty of activities, events, concerts, shopping, social gatherings, the outdoors with endless beaches, Wadis to hike in and more.

We have grown into a happy school with nearly 1,100 students from more than  70 different nationalities and are committed to the safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our students. Please note that applicants will undergo strict child protection screening, including criminal background checks and reference checks with past/present employers.
