Best British Schools in Dubai – the SchoolsCompared.com Parent Guide 2017
The Bottom Line?
All of the schools here, often in different ways, set benchmarks for educational provision.
But, as importantly, the sheer number of schools we have felt able to highlight says much that is positive about the quality of education in Dubai within the UK schools sector. Parents really do have choices.
We have distinguished traditional English National Curriculum schools between those offering primary-only and those delivering all-through provision. By referring to individual reviews, you will find the slipstream schools for the primary schools listed. For many parents, separate primary schooling remains a priority – and all of the primary schools here operate at an outstanding level in one or more respects. Taken across the spectrum of their provision, all the primary schools listed here are beacon schools, shining a light for the best education available in the Emirates. Each operates at globally benchmarked, highly creditable standards.
The same holds true in most part to the all-through schools identified here. Again, it is imperative to look at individual reviews to understand how each school may provide a better fit for the abilities and ambitions of each individual child. Some, for example, will offer better SEND provision, others will offer better added-value for the non-academic child. We have also taken the decision to include a number of schools here too which make compromises in some areas of provision, for example, in facilities, subject choice or “bells and whistles”, but which still offer something, we believe, of considerable value. Many schools featured here too offer a quality of education beyond that which might be reasonably expected of their fees.
Every school identified is in some ways extraordinary for the right child.
Nothing, however, can ever take the place of visiting a school, weighing the views of other parents and interrogating schools on added value, results, whole child provision – and how they will specifically meet the needs you identify for your child(ren).
What our reviews, and those of our sister site WhichSchoolAdvisor, aim for, is to strengthen your hand in making informed decisions, and we weight heavily in our reviews the feedback we receive from you.
Your feedback can be left through the form at the very end of our reviews. We always respect the anonymity of feedback if requested.
Please do continue to feed your views back to us. Do not underestimate the help you give to future parents by investing your time in doing this – and your critical role in enabling us to feedback to schools directly the changes you feel that are important to get the changes required implemented for your children today.
