From its humble origins in 1963, Dubai English Speaking School now boasts modern facilities and classrooms of the highest standards. There are now 800+ children with 5 classes in each year group. The Primary School covers the National Curriculum for England and Wales for children from age 4 to 11. In 2006, building on over 40 years of tradition and reputation for academic excellence, Dubai English Speaking School (DESS) opened its own Secondary school, Dubai English Speaking College (DESC) in impressive modern buildings in Academic City. We now look to the future, providing quality British education for children up to the age of 18 and preparing our students for university entry and adulthood. As we celebrate 50 years in 2013, it is with great pride that we look back on the school’s progress since its beginnings in 1963.
