Message from Principal

It is my pleasure to welcome you to The City School International, Dubai. The students and staff of the school hope you find the information on this website informative and useful.

The school, formed in 2006, offers the British National Curriculum from Foundation Stage to IGCSE. We are proud that the academic achievements of our students, particularly at IGCSE level, match with our goal of academic excellence.

Our philosophy of continuous development embedded within a culture of professionalism enables all our students to succeed.

Our approach to teaching and learning reflects the best practice found in the United Kingdom. As identified in our most recent inspection report, our ‘students show real enthusiasm for learning and want to do well’. Similarly, our students are praised for ‘carrying out a wide variety of research projects which develop their problem solving and critical thinking skills. Our students ‘show initiative and lively enterprise’. This is due to teachers ‘having a good subject knowledge which is used to plan lessons that engage and stimulate students’. The report also identifies the ‘good relationships between staff and students which underpins a very positive learning ethos in classrooms throughout the school’.

Extra and Co-curricular activities are also important to us. We offer a wide range of activities for students to develop their sporting, dramatic, creative and artistic skills. We also believe that all students should have the opportunity to learn about and support their local, national and international communities encouraging them to become integrated citizens of the 21st Century.

If this is the well-rounded educational experience you want for your child, please don’t just take my word for it, come and visit us and see the school in action. We may be busy but we will always welcome you.

Warm regards

Craig Shipton
