Dubai English Speaking College is the sister institution to Dubai English Speaking School (DESS), the oldest UK-curriculum school in Dubai, established in 1963. The College opened in 2005 to provide a through-school arrangement for secondary education for families at DESS. In between times, DESC has grown to admit students from a range of other schools around Dubai. Both DESS and DESC are among the few ‘not for profit’ schools in Dubai.
