Durham School Dubai is the third international branch of one of England’s longest established day and boarding schools, Durham School. The original school is an institution of great prestige and historic importance; founded in 1414 and re-founded in 1541 by King Henry VIII. While the Dubai campus is a far cry from this historic UNESCO World Heritage Site, it does aim to retain the same traditional British values and educational ethos.

Principal Mark Atkins, told us:

“We are offering a traditional British education. We will make sure we get the basics right: science, reading, writing, good manners and discipline, proper dining. Once you’ve got the basics in place, you’re giving children all the tools they need to be successful.”
