Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Established in 1974, Sharjah English School is a not-for-profit school based on the Dubai-Sharjah border that follows the British Curriculum to very high standards. Ranked in the top 3 schools in the UAE for best results in A-levels in 2021. SES is dedicated to providing outstanding education welcoming students from age 3 in FS1 to year 13.

We are the first school in the UAE to be accredited by The Curiosity Approach for early years, with natural play spaces igniting curiosity and wonder into early childhood, creating the 'thinkers & doers' of the future with a modern day approach that fits perfectly in current changing technological times.
The school is strategically located making it easily accessible from Dubai, Ajman, UAQ and RAK.

Teaching approach of the school

Sharjah English School prepares children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences they will face in life through promoting their social, cultural, moral and intellectual development. The school strives to provide a learning experience which is challenging and enjoyable.

As a relatively small school, SES can maintain an intimate, student-friendly and nurturing environment. Teaching and learning within Sharjah English School reflect SES strong beliefs about education in general:

- every pupil has to be valued and needs to attain the highest level academically of which he/she is capable;
- all pupils deserve the opportunity to learn and grow, personally, socially and morally;
- all students are individuals and the strengths and learning styles of each must inform our approach to teaching;
- to succeed with all children a school needs to be challenging and to push a child, but the environment must be secure and happy and free from threat;
- students should want to come to school;
- students should appear curious and engaged;
- teaching needs to be imaginative and inspiring and varied, only then can all be persuaded to participate;
- students in SES are in no doubt that the school expects much of them, but they are also secure in knowing that we offer them support and security to attempt challenging and new things;
- learning will flourish where there is a friendly, co-operative working relationship between the home and the school.
