Our Curriculum

One of the most respected and in-demand study options in the world, the English National Curriculum creates confident students with independent minds. Project-based learning engages and inspires a love of learning among students, as they work towards the IGCSE and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Both qualifications help students progress to leading universities around the world.

In our increasingly globalised world, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a highly influential qualification. The diploma takes a global view, developing students intellectually, physically, emotionally and ethically. Incorporating best practice from many different national curricula, the IBDP has been shown to give graduates a greater chance of progressing to their chosen international university, compared to A-levels.

The teaching of Arabic subjects is based on the guidance and materials prescribed by the Ministry of Education. It keeps local and other native Arabic speaking and Muslim children familiar with their national identity and religion. In addition, our international students gain an understanding of the UAE’s heritage which helps enhance mutual understanding, peaceful co-existence and cross-cultural harmony and tolerance.
