Dubai English Speaking College was established in 2005 and was originally located at the Oud Metha site of our sister school, Dubai English Speaking School, which is Dubai’s oldest British school. Our history, traced through the roots of DESS, can be viewed here.

DESC opened with just 35 Year 7 students and has grown gradually. The College now has in excess of 900 students from Year 7 to 13.

Our modern facilities (main picture above – 2007) are located in Academic City and were officially opened in February 2007 by The Duchess of Cornwall and Her Royal Highness Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, Princess of Jordan, Sheikha of Dubai.

DESC is a ‘not for profit’ organisation. We follow the National Curriculum for England and students take GCSE, AS and A2 (A Level) qualifications.

The College is open for prospective parents to take a tour of the site, as well as meet staff and students, throughout most of the academic year. See here for schedule and booking arrangements.
