A new Dubai-based Indian curriculum school which will open its gates to 3,000 pupils in April 2014 promises that students will experience 'an innovative approach' to learning with a focus on 'interactive methods'.

The Dh50 million Credence High School will offer the CBSE curriculum along with the XSEED programme of learning from KG to Grade 6. Grades 7 to 12 will only follow the CBSE programme. The school will be based in Al Khail and will cover more than 2.8 hectares making it one of the largest campuses in the city.

The school is being run by iDiscoveri, an education consultancy founded by Harvard graduates, according to local press reports. In briefings to the media senior management claimed that the curriculum offered will focus on 'collaborative learning merged with experiential education'.

“We searched the best faculty around in India, especially in the north,” said Dr Azad Moopen, chairman of MMS India. “We visited seven to eight various areas like Delhi and Calcutta. This syllabus is very well thought-of and it teaches children through actual participation in the learning process while empowering teachers for properly guiding children.”

Tuition fees will be lower than some other Indian schools, ranging from Dh15,000 to Dh29,000 a year.

School facilities will include almost 1,000 square metres of covered outdoor area for play, a dance and drama hall and four IT labs. There is a strong commitment to sport evidenced in the extensive sports facilities.  These include an Olympic-sized swimming pool, a football ground, a cricket pitch as well as basketball, volleyball, tennis and badminton courts and a six-lane athletics track.

The school will begin accepting admissions from November of this year to begin classes in the new Indian academic year which commences in April 2014.
