Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Jebel Ali School's aim is to guide each individual child through these most important formative years of learning and to give them a "head start" in life. Jebel Ali pupils become responsible, well-balanced and caring young people, able to face the next stage of education with confidence and enthusiasm. Jelbel Ali tries hard to ensure that they develop the attitudes and habits, the mindset if you want to put it in those terms, of successful learners.

In September 2016, Jebel Ali launches its new campus in Akoya, continuing legacy of Jeleb Ali Primary School.

Teaching approach of the school

Jebel Ali provides a high quality British-style education based upon the framework of the National Curriculum for England. The holistic approach to education fosters respect, tolerance and understanding and enables each child to maximise their academic success and also develop the skills and aptitudes that will allow them to adapt and succeed in a world which is rapidly changing.

The school offers a secure and safe environment where children are challenged in order to gain the necessary skills in academic, social, sporting and aesthetic fields. The school emphasizes the development of the individual but also encourages students to see themselves as valued and productive members of the school and the wider community.
