Grammar School, Dubai

Grammar School Dubai has the rather dubious honour of being one of the most inspected schools by the KHDA. Unfortunately, that is not because it is doing things so well, but because it is subject to re-inspection reports following Unsatisfactory ratings.

Unfortunately the school has failed to remove itself from the lowest tier of the Dubai education regulator’s ratings and off the watch list for 2013/14. Note: The school was not subject to a full inspection in the KHDA’s latest round of school assessments. It has been subject to one Guidance Visit and one Follow-Through Inspection since the 2011/12 full inspection

The Grammar School is a private K-12 school located in Al Garhoud, Dubai. The school was established in 1970 and currently caters to more than 850 students with 50 staff.

Its last full inspection report notes: “The overall performance of Grammar School [is] unsatisfactory. Students’ attainment across most subjects and grades was below curriculum standards. Their progress, marginally better in a few areas, did not match expectations in lessons or over time…

“Despite a strong commitment of senior leaders to improvement, teaching strategies did not result in effective learning in the Kindergarten, primary or secondary phases. The assessment systems in the school did not accurately measure students’ performance. Assessment information was not used effectively by teachers to meet students’ needs in a majority of lessons.

Teachers’ understanding of the curriculum is said to be “underdeveloped”.

Grammar School Dubai offers a mixed Indian and British curriculum with programmes available such as A-level and IGCSE.
