Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Dubai English Speaking School is the oldest British school in The United Arab Emirates, established in 1963 by Sheikh Rashid, former Ruler of Dubai. The school is a not-for profit establishment administered by a Board of Governors and as such there is generous reinvestment in the school on both a long term and short term basis. This has ensured that the facilities in the school are excellent.
