Judging by the amount of attention this page gets, Sharjah is still eagerly awaiting a proposed new school from the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan school group, outlined in 2010 for 2011.

BVB chairman, N K Ramachandran, told the Khaleej Times on 10 August 2010 they would open Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan (BVB) schools in Dubai and Sharjah in 2011 - "We propose to start one school in Dubai in April next year and another one in Sharjah in September next year after getting the necessary sanctions from the authorities here."

Ramachandran also claimed BVB was planning to start "one school in Bahrain in next April and another one in Oman in September next year."

All schools seem to remain in the initial planning phases.

The interest from parents in Sharjah is perhaps not a huge surprise. The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan Indian educational trust, with 117 centres in India and 355 constituent institutions, is a highly regarded by those from the subcontinent - a significant demographic in an emirate still under served by good quality educational opportunities. The trust also runs schools in London, Manchester, New York, Sydney and, so far, three in the Middle East - in Kuwait, Qatar and the UAE in Abu Dhabi

The schools in India are generally known as Bharatiya Vidya Mandir, Bhavan's Vidya Mandir, or Bhavan's Vidyalaya. However, in the Middle East they have taken on more prosaic names - the Indian Educational School in Kuwait and the Private International English School in Abu Dhabi.

The Abu Dhabi school offers a CBSE based curriculum. Fees for the school start at 8,000 AED per year at the KG level, 10,000 AED per year for grades 1 to 4, 12,000 AED for Classes V to VIII and 15,000 AED from Class IX onwards. Parents pay separately for books, uniform and transport.

At launch the school stated meritorious students would be given 50 per cent fee subsidy from Class VIII onwards.

I would like the school started in Sharjah at the earliest as my son is a student of BVB and wishes he continue here also in the same. The delay disappoints me as I am not satisfied in the teaching of other schools. Expecting you to consider this mail understanding the future of the child, and start the school at the earliest.
