Facilities: Four Science laboratories, a multipurpose hall, a swimming pool and an outdoor playing area, library and canteen. The PE department also uses a local sports club for some of the afterschool fixtures.

Subjects Offered: Not available

Exam Results: VES didn’t published the results for 2018, however, according to the school website, in 2017, 48% of students achieved an A* to A in their IGCSE results. In addition, 9 students at VES achieved 5 or more A*s in their IGCSE results. 

What WSA says: VES certainly has its long-term fans and the school works hard to keep them happy. With positive exam results, an active and effective ELT department and a can do attitude which sees the school reaching out to other institutions (Sharjah Wanderers Club for sports facilities), when it cannot provide in house- VES keeps both parents and students happy.

Sport & Extracurricular Activities: Located on the border with Ajman, in Sharjah’s smaller school district, Victoria is a big school on a relatively small plot. However, that said, Victoria does offer various indoor sports activities and swimming.
