Kings’ School Al Barsha is an outstanding British Primary and Secondary school for global and local families.
Established in September 2014, we are an integral part of the successful Kings’ Education Group founded in 2004 with Kings’ School Dubai, the only school in the United Arab Emirates to have achieved an ‘outstanding’ rating by the KHDA for 10 consecutive years.
Our schools all have the same key value – ‘The Best By Every Child’ – and this is the essence of our work, and what we all strive for every day. As a community, including leaders, teachers, support staff, parents and children, we know that working together in strong partnerships is the most effective way of supporting all our students to reach their full potential.
We are very proud of our British heritage and our thriving international community which is made up of many nationalities from around the globe. It is this combination of community and world-class educational standards that delivers such a high-quality, well-rounded, international education.
At Kings’ School Al Barsha we follow the National Curriculum for England as a framework which we then adapt to ensure a conceptual, integrated and enriched learning experience for our young learners. It is important that we contextualise the curriculum so that students understand what they are learning and why, by using the environment around them. It is also influenced by the individual and evolving needs of our students. The result is a rigorous bespoke curriculum, relevant to children growing up in Dubai but designed to produce happy and successful global citizens, ready to take their place in the world.
Secondary school students will obtain GCSE and A-Level qualifications, which will contribute to the English Baccalaureate (EBacc). In addition, all secondary students at Kings’ School Al Barsha will work towards their Gold Level Duke of Edinburgh Award.
Our outstanding teaching is creative and forward-thinking: we are always seeking innovative ways to inspire a lifelong love of learning in our young people. We believe that the way students are taught is as important as what they learn. Our approach is holistic, incorporating academic excellence and the attainment of skills as well as knowledge. We ensure a supportive environment focused on student happiness, health and well-being. We encourage our children to be active learners in every aspect of school life, inspiring independent, self-motivated and resilient individuals. The results speak for themselves with students achieving exceptional attainment, progress and success within and beyond the curriculum.
Kings’ School Al Barsha has outstanding facilities, from state-of-the-art technology throughout the school and classrooms, to purpose-built science laboratories, design, technology, and art suites. We encourage our students to explore the performing arts via our fully equipped auditorium, black box theatre, and music recording studios. In addition, our extensive sporting facilities include full-sized rugby and football pitches, a FIFA compliant natural grass football pitch, a prestigious Cricket Academy, multiple tennis and netball courts, and three swimming pools, including a competition pool.
Schools should be special places, filled with happiness, curiosity, and investigation, with inspiring teachers, challenging learning experiences and rich memorable activities. Kings’ School Al Barsha is just such a place, set in a beautiful campus, staffed by highly qualified teachers and exceptional leaders. It is a place of educational distinction, focused on achieving ‘The Best By Every Child’.
