Schools Compared – 15 April 2022
The SchoolsCompared team got a sneak peek at the site of the exciting new Durham School Dubai – the UAE branch of the famous and historic Durham School in the UK, whose legacy goes back 600 years and whose alumni features some of the most important UK politicians, poets and professional sports players. The campus is really taking shape and will easily be ready to welcome children from FS1 to year 8 when it opens in DIP this August! We loved the bright and airy corridors, the beautiful arts and music suite, and the kind and down-to-earth vibe of Founding Principal, Mark Atkins. We were lucky enough to be able to interview Mr Atkins after our tour, where we learnt all about his passion for shaping a truly happy school culture grounded on traditional British values, and raising well-rounded and confident, but also self-aware and compassionate, young people, who are inspired to reach their full academic and social potential. Watch out for our full review coming to the website soon, see all the pictures from our visit, or find out more.
