Throughout the school years, learning goes beyond the limits of the classroom. Our amazing facilities, local culture and places of interest provide exciting opportunities to enrich the curriculum. From testing aerodynamic racing cars at Yas Island Marina Circuit to beach clean-up eco days, all our trips and experiences are designed to promote hands-on learning and team-building in real-life situations.
Children at Kings’ School Al Barsha will experience a rich learning environment, filled with exciting challenges, creative hooks and memorable experiences, designed to inspire a lifelong love of learning.
Kings’ School Al Barsha has developed an exciting and ambitious programme for our annual Week Without Walls. The most talked-about event in the school calendar, Week Without Walls enables students in Years 7-10 to gain experiences and develop skills outside school in the real world. Focusing on some of our key competencies, such as leadership, teamwork, communication and risk-taking, the programme involves both residential trips overseas and in Dubai and immersive learning experiences within school but outside the curriculum.
Previous overseas adventures have included Borneo, Kenya, Nepal and Cambodia, featuring conservation and wildlife preservation activities among traditional communities. Dubai desert residentials have involved kayaking, climbing, mountain biking, raft-building and high ropes, alongside studies of the local ecosystems. Other experiences have included learning Chinese language and culture, and creating a film from scratch, taking it from script to post-production.
Students love our Week Without Walls adventures, where they can explore the world, develop their competencies and discover themselves.
