Kings School Dubai - British International School in Dubai

Posted in


Welcome to Kings’ School Dubai – a school with a fantastic reputation and genuinely a wonderful place to be.

We often say that Kings’ does things differently and to me that has much to do with the emotionally intelligent way in which we choose to operate. Emotional Intelligence sits very much at the heart of what we do.

At Kings’ School Dubai we follow the National Curriculum for England as a framework which we then adapt to ensure a conceptual, integrated and enriched learning experience for our young learners. It is important that we contextualise the curriculum so that children understand what they are learning and why, by using the environment around them. Children love learning about things they love, so allowing them ownership over their learning, where appropriate, is critical to their success.

We also focus heavily on learning behaviours such as Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Enquiring Minds, Emotional Intelligence and Leadership. Children need to be able to read and write, to manipulate number, to use technology effectively when required and to hypothesise and investigate. However, they must also be able to communicate effectively in many different forms, collaborate with others, problem solve, take risks and accept challenges in their learning. Children must be resilient and understand that mistakes help them learn and grow as individuals, and so we talk regularly about the importance of developing a growth mind-set.
