UAE education provider Taaleem has announced the launch of a fifth DBS campus, due to open in Emaar’s Mira community in August 2025. The announcement follows the commencement of construction of DBS Jumeira, set to open in September 2024.

DBS Mira has a plot of 28,480 sq ft secured, situated between the Mira and Mira Oasis communities. Taaleem has confirmed that the school is expected to cater for more than 1,600 students. Enrollments will be open to children aged 3 - 11 years initially, and it will expand to become an all-through school in subsequent years. The school is planned to have a strong focus on sustainability and community. 

Dubai British Schools’ existing campuses in Emirates Hills and Jumeirah Park currently cater to more than 3,000 students.

Fees for DBS Mira are detailed on the KHDA website currently, ranging from AED 49,026 - AED 66,545 (up to Year 7). Enrollments for 2025 are now open. 

Fees for DBS Jumeira were shared in April 2023, with KHDA approved fees at AED 50,500 (but discounted to AED 42,900 on opening) for FS1 and FS2, Years 1 and 2; those for Years 3 to 6 are approved at AED 57,500 (discounted to AED 49,100). Approved fees for Years 7 to 11, which will open in subsequent years, are AED 68,500, whilst those for Years 12 and 13 are AED 75,700.

DBS Mira's 'FS Learning Hub'


The first Dubai British School (DBS) opened in Emirates Hills in 2005. Catering to children aged 3 – 18 years and offering the British curriculum, DBS EH has received a KHDA rating of Outstanding since 2018 and has proved a popular choice with parents in the surrounding communities.

DBS Emirates Hills' popularity was such that Taaleem launched a second campus in 2015 within close proximity, DBS Jumeirah Park. Dubai British Foundation, which opened in 2014, caters solely to children aged 3-5 years, feeding into DBS JP. DBS Jumeirah and DBS Mira have been launched this year as part of Taaleem's five year growth strategy. 

Alan Williamson, Chief Executive Officer at Taaleem, said:

“We’re excited to announce the addition of Dubai British School Mira in a rapidly expanding and sought-after community, marking the next milestone in our five-year strategy which we set out at the time of our IPO. Our decision to introduce DBS Mira, which will accommodate over 1,600 students at full utilization, further emphasizes our dedication to our growth strategy. In addition we remain committed and on track to complete a further two greenfield projects. 

“DBS Mira will enhance enrollment and resource optimization across our premium and partnership schools' network, extends our premium schools' portfolio in the UAE and offers new communities the opportunity to access values-based world-class education at an affordable price point. By prudently and strategically employing the capital raised from the IPO to expedite growth, Taaleem remains committed to delivering attractive returns and capturing additional profitable long-term growth, in order to maximize value for our shareholders.”
