It is my very great pleasure to welcome you to Dubai British School Emirates Hills (DBSEH), a Taaleem school.

DBSEH is a thriving British international school, located in The Springs and Meadows area of Dubai’s Emirates Hills. As a Taaleem school, we provide high-quality education to over a thousand students aged 3 to 18.

The school is a warm and happy one, with a philosophy firmly grounded in positive education with wellbeing at the very heart of all we do. Our approach is to develop a fully inclusive learning community which is positive, engaged and connected in line with our vision statement of 'Enjoy, Aspire, Achieve'.

Our guiding statements, led by the approach ‘feeling good, doing good,’ perfectly capture the ethos of our great school, where students thrive in a nurturing yet challenging environment – able to achieve the best possible educational outcomes and to flourish as individuals during the experience. We celebrate this individuality in all that we do, praising a musical solo as warmly as we do an A* grade and promoting a wonderful piece of artwork or sporting brilliance as much as we do an entrance into the University of Cambridge.

Our students are 6C learners; they are critical thinkers, communicators, cooperative, caring, creative and courageous in all they do. These learning skills are inherent in, and intrinsic to, the preparation of children for each stage of their academic careers and beyond.

It is this warmth of spirit that sets DBSEH apart, where every student, every member of staff and every parent can find their place.

Schools are often talked about as being ‘happy places’, but DBSEH is made up of happy people - happy to be respected, valued, and appreciated, given every opportunity to succeed in a way that is meaningful to them. I do hope that you are able to visit the school, to see and feel this for yourself, and to hopefully join the DBSEH community as a student, parent or member of staff.
