Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Dovecote Green Primary School is a British primary school in the heart of Dubai Investments Park, managed by Evolvence Knowledge Investments who own Repton School and Foremarke School. DGPS will provide a caring, secure education in a bright, stimulating and motivating environment. A thinking school for the 21st century, the school will follow the English National curriculum and develop the values of respect, joy and commitment in all pupils, which in turn will develop the whole child.

Teaching approach of the school

Education at Dovecote Green is a continual process of discovering, learning and maturing, as pupils supported by their teachers and their parents, progress through the various key stages of their school life.

Dovecote Green follows a British independent school curriculum which incorporates elements of the English National Curriculum but which allows highly skilled teachers to develop an appropriate curriculum for an independent school in an international environment. The whole course of study through the school is designed to develop pupils as independent and lifelong learners as well as encouraging a spirit of intellectual curiosity and the pursuit of knowledge. This is achieved not only by what is studied in lessons but by formal prep time and links between academic and co-curricular opportunities.
