About The English College Dubai

The English College Dubai is a non-selective all through school (ages 3-18) which embraces being inclusive. We cater to all nationalities and religions; this is reflected in the values and culture of the whole school community ensuring that learners feel welcome, accepted, safe and valued whatever their background.

On entry to the school, we also effectively identify students who have special educational needs and disabilities as well as those who are gifted and talented. Where needed, we modify our curriculum accordingly and implement intervention and specific support mechanisms to help all students succeed. The English College is a school for English speaking students. We do not teach English as a second language.

The English College, Dubai was established in 1992 and has grown into a well-respected and highly sought-after school in the region. Following the British curriculum, our school offers classes from FS 1 to Year 13. Student numbers are approximately 750 and all classes and lessons are taught and supported by highly qualified teaching staff.

Great emphasis is placed on developing the whole child in a stimulating, caring environment. Excellent relationships exist between staff, student and parents, something we are very proud of.

Besides its excellent teachers, it has a true community feel to it. Wellbeing of students is very important, besides giving them the best start for life after school. We are from Sweden and English is not our first language but my 2 children settled in so fast and they love the school, a big thanks to Mr Wilcock, the head of primary and Mr Budd, deputy head of primary!

EC is a unique school in Dubai. It retains a friendly and nurturing environment and has a welcoming and homely feel which embraces you as you walk in the door. The staff are professional and approachable and they really know the children. Everyone is important and their views are respected. The mixture of nationalities is another aspect that makes this a wonderful place to learn. The communication between the school and parents has improved. The results are excellent from students with a range of abilities. The school is also making a much needed investment in the facilities. More importantly the children are happy.

I've been going to this school for nearly 6 years now and have loved it! There's just something about the family feel thanks to its small student capacity that makes it that much more enjoyable to be there. In a year or so they are expected to have 2 new buildings with top of the range facilities and access to many more subjects for students to learn. I look forward to see how the #ECStandards improve.

Teachers favourite students and are unfair, students who are good in subjects are unnoticed and are unmotivated. Leadership team has gotten worse each year as well as an increasing amount of teachers leave each year. Do not recommend for your children.
