Ensuring individual attention for each student

Sharjah English School students receive a broad education from Foundation to graduation that empowers them to take on the world

An outstanding 3 to 18 school that is excellent value for money, Sharjah English School (SES), is on the door-step of Dubai and easily accessible for most of the city's residents. Whether its an exemplary and innovative child-centred Foundation/kindergarten department, or an established sixth form with an unparalleled A-Level record, SES offers children both challenge and support that is enriching and highly personalised.

Proud of its 47-year history and its not-for-profit ethos, Sharjah English School is a uniquely friendly and community setting, whose strengths are enhanced by having one of the largest school sites in the UAE and impressive modern facilities.

For children who will be three years old by August 31, their potential education journey can take them from a stimulating, collaborative environment where secure core knowledge is complemented by a wide range of specialist subjects, into a secondary school that produces exceptional GCSE and A-Level results, and spreads its alumni across the top universities in the UK and worldwide.

The pastoral programmes and student leadership experiences mark SES graduates as confident, ambitious, extremely articulate, innovate thinkers, who balance personal accomplishment with environmental and social awareness.

SES is staffed by UK trained teachers; its enviable staff continuity is reflected in the fact that its A Levels are taught by educators with an average of more than 15 years of experience in their specialisations. 2021 sees the school also offering post-GCSE BTECs.

With fewer than 850 students across primary and secondary, SES still provides an intimate environment and highly individualised teaching; there is a three form intake up to Year 9, and class sizes in important examination years permit focused attention for every student, with some of the best teachers to pupils ratios in the UAE.  

We have a wonderful school community and a great history, but ultimately everything comes down to the relationship between the teachers and the students. Is it caring, secure, engaging, fun? Are staff generous with their time and prepared to go that extra mile, especially when things are tough? Fortunately, at SES we can answer all those questions with a resounding 'absolutely!'"

John Nolan

With more than thirty years of international school experience, John Nolan has been the Principal at Sharjah English School since 2010, a decade of leadership, which has seen the school develop beyond all recognition. Recognised as 'outstanding' (BSO 2019) SES succeeds in combining academic excellence and personal development with a calm and stress-free learning environment. Education comes before profits at one of the UAE's friendliest schools.
