The Oxford School, established in 1988, offers an education to children from the International Community in Dubai from Foundation Stage through to Grade Twelve. The curriculum is based on the English National Curriculum (adapted to local requirements) and is delivered through the medium of English – leading to the worldwide recognized qualifications of IGCSE and AS/A2 (A levels). We also provide statutory courses in Arabic and Islamic studies according to UAE requirements.
The school aims to develop students with the knowledge, skills and understanding to help them achieve their personal goals and be responsible citizens in an ever changing society. To this end we offer high quality educational programmes, using a process of continuous internal and external assessment, in a caring, tolerant learning environment conducive to every individual having an opportunity to maximize his/her learning potential. Our students and staff are courteous, respectful and tolerant, and committed to the ideals of peace, integrity, justice and decency.
We firmly believe that it is possible to give young people a rigorous education and at the same time for them to be happy. When our students leave The Oxford School, they do so with the qualifications and qualities needed to face the demands, pressures and exciting challenges of an increasingly complex and integrated global community; with good friends; happy memories of sports and games played, drama, concerts, school trips and a thousand and one other school activities and events.
