Welcome to the Sixth Form at Dubai British School Emirates Hills

We aim to provide our post-16 students with a stimulating curriculum, leading to internationally recognised qualifications that form entry requirements for the leading institutions of Higher Education.

Our students are offered a broad and balanced curriculum combined with enrichment opportunities to aid their development into responsible members of the adult community. Students in our care are encouraged to gain additional experience through engaging in programmes such as:

  • Duke of Edinburgh
  • EPQ / IPQMOOC Courses
  • LAMDA Qualification
  • Sports Leaders Awards
  • MUNTedX talks
  • Prefect Programme
  • Peer Mentor Programme

A comprehensive school-wide extra-curricular programme enables our student to pursue interests in a wide range of activities from competitive sports teams, through to Jazz Band.

We are very proud that we are an inclusive Sixth Form offering both the A Level Pathway and vocational BTEC Programmes, or as appropriate, a blended mix. Over the years we have seen our students gain places at some of the world’s leading universities including Oxford, Cambridge and John Hopkins, studying a host of courses from Medicine and Law, through to Criminology and Property Management.

We are proud to have been awarded the Outstanding rating by DSIB as well as British Schools Overseas and truly believe that students live our mission to ‘Enjoy, Aspire and Achieve’. We recognize the importance of personalised learning, empowering every student in our care to aim high and reach their academic potential, in a supportive, community-based environment.
