School Description

As one of the oldest and most successful schools in Dubai, we pride ourselves on providing an environment where students and staff have a real sense of belonging and accomplishment.

This environment, created over 40 years, has academic and educational excellence, building community and developing new friendships for students at the heart of everything that we do.

Our highly experienced staff strive to provide an engaging and enjoyable experience for all of our students which relieves parents of the stress of having to continuously worry about school progress.

At JAS, we want your child to have a balanced experience in school. We see this as including academic, sporting and extracurricular success in equal measures. We align this with a core focus on teaching our students how to think, rather than what to think.

Excellence comes from that educational focus and from knowing that you are part of a very special place, where thousands of families have gone before you and taken that JAS magic into the world.

From the first day of school in early years through to the final days of sixth form, JAS will bring out the best in your son or daughter. Allied with our sense of community and parental involvement JAS offers your family a sense of belonging while you may be far from home.

We look forward to welcoming you to the JAS family!

Extra Curricular Activities

Students experience a wide range of stimulating and engaging topics at all levels, delivered by a highly motivated and passionate team. Fully supported and recognised by senior leaders as an important area of the curriculum that develops creativity and social skills such as teamwork and confidence.

As well as being popular with students, the Creative Arts and Performing Arts subjects also provide rigorous and challenging content through to GCSE and A-level, with all subjects achieving significant results in all areas of examination.

Our established curriculum is supported by an array of specialised facilities which include two drama rooms with lighting and sound facilities, two musics rooms, five individual music practice rooms, an Apple Mac suite, two art rooms, a photography room, design technology workshop and an additional computer suite. Our large auditorium plays host to the many performances and productions throughout the academic year.

Alongside the curriculum, our professional and passionate staff facilitate many extracurricular projects in a wide variety of disciplines, catering for every interest of our varied student body, and this helps embed Performing Arts and Creative Arts into the everyday life of the school.
