Welcome By Principal
Thank you for taking time to stop and look at our website. You will have already seen on here that Capital School has so much to offer you and your child in the most important phase of their lives.
First and foremost, I feel immensely proud to lead a wonderful and inspirational staff who always put the needs of your child first and work to their fullest to ensure that learning is maximised for all children in the school, and that it is also enjoyable. Here, we see learning as a skill which all children should develop. When children develop this skill, in a supportive and happy environment, it stays with them for life and they become lifelong learners enabling them to reach their full potential.
Although we are situated in Dubai, and are very much a part of the local community and the great country that is the UAE, we never forget that we are a school which parents choose because of its ‘Britishness’. We are very proud to be a part of both of these communities and cultures and to promote a strong awareness and understanding of both.
If you come and have a tour of our school, I am sure you will agree that it is a remarkably happy school. Here, you will see wide smiles on the face of everyone you meet from our reception and admissions staff, through to our facilities staff, teaching assistants, teachers and the school’s senior leadership team….and, of course, our students.
Capital School is on a journey of constant improvement and we eagerly await our next inspection from the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), to prove this to the wider world. We have a strong leadership team, each of which has already transformed their areas of responsibility and raised expectations of everyone in the school. Our new and returning teachers have merged well in to an extremely effective team, working together to ensure that the curriculum and the quality of teaching meets the needs of all students and challenges them to learn to their full potential.
Founded in 2015, Capital School has quickly established itself as the leading affordable school in Dubai with staff fully experienced and knowledgeable in delivering the National Curriculum of England to children aged 3 to 14. We plan to continue our expansion to very soon become an all-through school.
As you would expect, wellbeing is at the forefront of everything we do, especially in this unprecedented time of COVID-19. We have programmes in place which support our students both in school and at home and are very proud that our Distance Learning provision has received the highest rating from KHDA in their latest inspection/evaluation.
We never forget that your children are the most precious parts of your lives and that you have entrusted them to us, even with your concerns and fears about health and safety, particularly at this time. This is very humbling for us and we never forget the huge responsibility that this is, and we work tirelessly to repay this trust to you and your families.
I am very excited about leading this school in the coming years, which I have committed to, as it is a school with enormous potential and wonderful resources in terms of facilities and staffing. I fully believe that we can truly aspire to be an Outstanding school in the coming years, favourably benchmarking ourselves with the very best premium schools in Dubai.
We look forward to sharing our success in the coming years with you and your children!
