Headteacher’s Welcome Message:

From our Head of School

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Victoria English School and our wonderful community. We are a British Curriculum school and we have exceptional high expectations and standards. The school adopts the British Curriculum throughout and we are proud of the success and achievements of all our students. We cater for students from FS1 all the way to the Sixth Form and we offer iGCSE and iA Level qualifications from Pearson. 

We are proud of our high academic success and results as well as our students who we develop into highly qualified future leaders and global citizens in an ever changing world. Our students are from all around the world and we are fortunate to have over 60 nationalities working together and learning from each other. 

The school ethos and culture is based on our core values of Respect, Responsibility, Kindness, Honesty and Success. We are proud to develop students in a holistic manner with high academic rigour balanced with student care and wellbeing. Our Pastoral responsibility is just as essential as our high standards of teaching and learning. We want all our students to be happy, healthy and confident learners who think critically and question the world around them.

I am proud to be the Headteacher of this vibrant school and I strive everyday to ensure everyone can believe in themselves, aspire to be better and achieve the very best they can.

Mission Statement

Community and Respect

Victoria English School provides a high-quality British style education in an international setting serving expatriate and local children. The curriculum is designed and adapted to suit the multicultural nature of the school, maintaining a positive culture of academic excellence and a caring environment. We serve to prepare our children to take their place as global citizens of the twenty-first century.

Our Aims

As a school we focus on the holistic education of all our students. Each student is unique and our teachers collaborate to bring out and develop the talents in every student. Victoria English School prepares and places students in the leading universities throughout the United Arab Emirates and the World by equipping them with outstanding qualifications and world class results. 

We focus on preparing students for success in a smaller global yet more competitive world. As teachers we prepare our students for further education and employment in many current and future industries, through critical thinking and ensuring they take responsibility for themselves, whilst building autonomy and resilience. Of equal importance is the school’s commitment to ensuring students become active and considerate members of their communities. They are encouraged to show respect for themselves, others and their environment.
