Welcome to Capital School, Dubai.

For any child or parent, making a choice and entering a new school is a big decision. We know this and also know that great trust is put into the school to care for your children and to ensure that they learn well and become happy and responsible learners. Achieving this is important to us.

Capital School is now well into its third year. We have a very well established environment in a building with good facilities and space for children to learn. Our school is managed and led by people with a wealth of experience in caring and teaching young children and helping them become confident and high achieving individuals. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum that addresses the spirit of the National Curriculum of England. My experience in leading highly successful schools here in Dubai and in the UK is key to establishing a highly effective British curriculum school here in Qusais. We continue to be excited by the opportunity we have to create a school with the space and facilities in our building, but more so by the opportunity to create a unique experience for our children, one built upon high international standards, a strong programme of Arabic and English language, and a commitment to meeting the needs of all students. Our school is an inclusive and co-educational school for students from the age of 3 up to 18 years, with a commitment to building the confidence of our children, their independence and their respect for each other in order that they truly become global citizens of the future.

Our Primary and Foundation Stage opened in September 2014 and Secondary School within the same campus opened in September 2015 for year 7 students.

Our teaching approaches reflect the best of current UK and international best practice in that our classroom organization and planning ensure stimulating, purposeful, working environments. We create an atmosphere of warmth and care because we believe a happy child learns well. We aim to ensure that excellence is pursued and valued, that lessons are challenging and have pace and direction and that our teaching meets the individual needs of our children.

The Primary and Foundation Stage is housed in its own purpose-built facility with large classrooms, access to a good outdoor play area and sports facilities as well as multi-purpose gymnasium, sports hall and two outdoor swimming pools, enabling the children to swim during the year. Our secondary schools boasts specialist facilities for technology, art, and science. All our classrooms have interactive whiteboards and students can access technology throughout the school through our approach to promoting technology across the curriculum.

We are open for admissions to our Foundation Stage, Primary School and Secondary school for September 2016 start and are always keen to show prospective children and their parents around the school. I am confident that the positive nurturing atmosphere we are creating will provide an excellent educational experience for your child.

Please contact the School for further information and I look forward to welcoming you to the school.
