Welcome to Jumeirah College
Jumeirah College is a Year 7 to Year 13 school that has earned a reputation for providing premium education, teaching The National Curriculum for England and offering a wide range of GCSE and A level courses. Though the majority of our students are British, we are privileged to have students from over 60 different nationalities as part of our College community. Located in the prime residential area of Jumeirah, we enjoy modern, well designed buildings set in their own grounds and are within easy reach of all areas of Dubai.
At the College, we pride ourselves on the balance that we achieve for each individual student as we promote academic excellence and development of the person, all in an established, friendly and supportive environment. Our students tell us that they enjoy their education and this is reflected in their positive attitudes to learning. They tend to be confident, friendly, well-motivated and lively in their outlook and approach to all that they do. They learn to challenge in a positive and constructive manner, but more importantly, they learn to ask the questions that will develop them as citizens of a global community. Each and every individual is encouraged and guided to reach the very highest standard by teachers who are dedicated to bringing out the very best in them. Our academic achievement is excellent when judged against UK standards and continues to improve year after year. Our emphasis is on the quality of learning, supported by high quality teaching, and we are committed to reviewing our progress and striving to improve as a College even further.
Students will find that they are supported not only by their subject teachers during lessons but also by a cohesive pastoral team. We have high expectations in terms of effort, commitment, behaviour, uniform, appearance and work ethic. Our College Council system encourages a sense of responsibility and the strong charity work of the student body is an important feature of everyday life.
The learning experience does not begin and end in the classroom. We aim to recognise not only the hard work and endeavours of students whilst at the College, but also to celebrate their achievements outside of the school gates. We strive to make the educational experience as varied, diverse and interesting as possible and we are proud of our traditions for sporting achievements, musical excellence, drama productions and debating to name but a few of the diverse range of extra-curricular activities that is at the very heart of our being. School trips and visits play an ever increasing role in the education of our young people. Such activities range from local excursions and field trips, concerts and conferences across the globe, to extended visits across Europe, Asia and Africa. In addition, The Duke of Edinburgh International Award Scheme is a thriving activity as is our involvement with the World Challenge Expeditions.
At Jumeirah College we recognise that education is a shared responsibility between home and school and we truly value the partnership that we develop with parents and students as they progress through the College. You will notice immediately, that the relationship between staff and students is very positive and we endeavour to engage with parents so that they too can be part of the educational journey: together we will capture the essence of youth and ensure that our young people are socially, morally and culturally aware, with a maturity that will enable them to make the right choices in life. Whether through involvement in the strong extra-curricular life of the College, or through academic study, we are confident that each student will unlock and realise their potential.
I believe that my words give but a glimmer of insight into who we are but I hope that it entices you to visit. I and my staff and students would be delighted to welcome you to Jumeirah College and we look forward to meeting you.
