THE CITY SCHOOL WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1978 AND THE YEARS OF EXPERIENCE SHOW – IN OUR EXPERTISE, IN OUR COMMITMENT, AND IN OUR QUALITY.
We have moved with the times, but we have not lost sight of our values and traditions. At The City School, we genuinely believe in educating ‘the whole child’ so we provide our students with every opportunity to discover and build upon their strengths. We also expect them to face up to the challenges of an economically globalised and socially changing world – one in which they will have to take their place as independent, responsible citizens.
Our commitment to providing consistently high quality, accessible education underpins everything we do. We support and encourage high academic achievement, but we also recognise that individual students have different learning needs.
We guide our students through Early Years Education all the way to the Cambridge International Examinations. Our preparation supports them throughout their lives, as students of The City School have the knowledge, understanding, skills and values necessary to prosper both in their future careers and in life. Along with academic rigour, our campuses broaden horizons with an enrichment programme that engenders social awareness, responsibility, innovation and creativity in equal measure.
The City School International now has schools in the UAE, the Philippines, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia ,and Pakistan. Its future plans include the establishment of further schools in the Arab states, South East Asia, and Africa.

At The City School international, we aim for the holistic development of every student. Here extracurricular and co-curricular activities play a vital role in nurturing the whole child. Our Thursday mornings are dedicated to clubs and support classes. Where every student enrolls themselves to their area of interest or undertakes support classes to build on their areas of weakness. Teachers, senior students or hired experts conduct these classes and hone the skills of our students. Our regular field trip is aimed at experiential and contextual learning and evidenced as reaping paramount benefits.
