The Buzz: A really positive BSO report in 2017 shows this little school is clearly working hard for its students. And, although we don’t have the full exam report, the students highlighted have done very well indeed!

Facilities: Somewhat limited at present, however, the issue has been highlighted and management is working on expansion, and with a 66,500 square metre campus, there’s certainly the space for some serious additions. Right now the school has a library, ICT labs, science labs and sports facilities.

Exam Results: In 2017 89% of students gained 5 or more A* to C grades at IGCSE with 68% gaining 5 or more A* to C grades, including English and mathematics.

What WSA says: This not for profit, British curriculum, all-through school, was founded and operates under the patronage of HH Shaikh Hamad Bin Mohammad Al Sharqi, Ruler of Fujairah and Member of the Supreme Council. From the outset, the school has strived to create a ‘true’ British style. BSO inspectors call it Good with Outstanding features and say the IGCSE results exceed UK averages.

Sport & Extracurricular Activities: The school offers numerous teacher led activities both at lunchtime and after-school. Activities include sports, arts and crafts, games and language learning. Provision is reviewed each term by the students themselves and changes made based on feedback.
