British Schools in the Middle East

Why the British Curriculum?
British education has achieved a strong reputation for quality, and it is respected and highly recognized all over the world. The National Curriculum of England – also commonly referred to as the “UK Curriculum” or “British Curriculum” is the first choice for many families. According to The International School Consultancy’s researches, there are over 3300 schools (as of March 2017) offering the UK curriculum making it the most demanded ones across all international schools around the world.

Why Choose a British School in the Middle East?
Education is becoming an increasing focus in the Middle East, and both local and expats parents are choosing international schools with a British curriculum for their children. The British curriculum has a very structured program and one of the biggest benefits it offers to students is that it allows them to move seamlessly from country to country or back to the UK while receiving a world-class education and qualifications that are recognized and highly valued by universities around the world.

What’s the quality of life in the Middle East?
Dubai is the best country for quality of living across the Middle East and Africa region, according to Mercer’s 2017 Quality of Living Survey. Abu Dhabi came second, with Muscat and Doha following behind in the third and fourth place, respectively. Dubai also ranked highest in the Middle East and Africa region in terms of infrastructure. The accessibility to a variety of transport options, the connection with local and international cities, and the access to electricity and drinkable water represent a key competitive advantage for these cities that seems to attract a growing number of multinational companies, talent, and foreign investments.
