The school offers; full grass- cricket, rugby and football pitches, a sports grandstand, athletics tracks, covered swimming pool, indoor sports facilities, dance studio, auditorium, science labs, a dedicated performing arts building, arts centre, whole-school library, ICT Suite, learning support rooms, music rooms.

What WSA Says: Back in the day, SES was established with the same outlook and ethos as Dubai’s ‘Ivy-League’ not for profit schools such as- DESS, DC, JESS and JAS. In fact, for many years it offered only a primary education and most children went on to DC for secondary.
The school continues in this vein offering highly experienced UK teachers, top sporting facilities and consistently good exam results, the only real difference remains its location and of course the fees, which are considerably lower than the other not for profit schools in Dubai.
