One of Dubai’s oldest schools, Al Salam Private School, is set to expand with a second campus opening in Dubai in September 2019.

The 33-year-old school has a long and established history of offering high quality, financially accessible education.

Bin Haidar Education, a subsidiary of the Mohamed Omar Bin Haidar Group (MOBH), is partnering with Al Salam Private School to build the new campus.

The new School branch will be located in Al Twar and will operate from Foundation Stage 1 to Year 13 from its first year of operations.

Al Salam Private School has consistently demonstrated the ability to deliver high academic performance, and the school hoped to embed this in its new campus. The founder, Ms Susan Johnston, named as one the UAE’s Education Influencers by WhichSchoolAdvisor in 2016, said:

People have been asking us to open a second school for over ten years, as we’ve always lived by our motto ‘The best for every child’ and we’re delighted that we’re now able to do this through our partnership with Bin Haider Education.”

Bin Haidar Education is investing in the school building and will be Al Salam’s property partner.  Chairman of MOBH, Mohammad Omar Bin Haider told

“Al Salam Private School has provided high quality, yet accessible education for decades to the Dubai community, and our values align with theirs.

"When they approached us to partner on their second school, it was a very easy decision, and we’re delighted to be building a new campus with a range of new facilities for them, and for wider community.

"We recognise that education is the foundation of society, and Bin Haidar Education will make a significant contribution to the community of Dubai, and the UAE at large.”

The new school will feature a UAE heritage centre, a 25-metre six lane swimming pool, sports pitches, specialist science and technology rooms, an innovation hub, and multiple, flexible learning spaces.

The current school has an average fee of AED 23,000. Details on the fees at the second campus have not yet been released.
