School vision/Ethos:

This is a new school which has opened to much fanfare in August 2018 to provide a high standard of education based on the National Curriculum for England, enriched with a compassionate, ethical outlook focused on eco-literacy, sustainability and environmental justice. This educational vision will be embedded within the curriculum of the school and reflected in every lesson and task. The school boasts top-class facilities, using three climate controlled bio domes and learning gardens as key educational spaces to engage children in a deeper understanding of their ecology and environment. The school is currently open at Primary level to Year 6 and will open Year 7 in August 2019.

Dubai is a cosmopolitan place to live and work. An array of attractions and activities accommodate varying lifestyles from relaxing on beautiful beaches to hiking in the Hajar Mountains, music festivals, international sporting events, state of the art cinemas as well as international travel opportunities are just a snippet of what this amazing location has to offer.


This role is starting as a Head of Year 7, and is projected to grow as quickly as the school does. Being a leadership role, part time class teaching will be required for the first year at least. As this is a new school, and every year a year level is being added, the successful applicant will be instrumental in helping to shape the Secondary school in the next few years.

You should be a dynamic and enthusiastic team player committed to the success of a new school venture. You should share the ethos of this great school and seek to raise its profile. You should have a first class academic record of success and proven teaching ability.

In order to fulfil UAE Visa requirements you should have matching BA and PGCE (Or equivalent) in matching subjects or a Bachelor of Education in the subject you will be teaching. This school is seeking teachers who are enthusiastic, flexible team players who can offer strengths beyond their professional skill set.
