Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

For more than four decades Sharjah English School has been the school of choice for families seeking an excellent and challenging UK education for their children. Our school site near University City is readily accessible to students from Sharjah, Ajman, Mirdiff and most of Dubai.

As a not-for-profit school, SES is dedicated to providing an outstanding education comparable to the best schools in the Gulf region and internationally. SES educational ethos will always remain focused on quality teaching and learning, rather than any commercial imperative; this, the school claims, has a profound impact on both the school's students and teachers.

SES offers challenging and balanced curriculum based on the National Curriculum of England and Wales.

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.
