DESSC (Dubai English Speaking School & College) sits at the very centre of the educational landscape of Dubai, combining the top British Curriculum schools across the UAE; DESS (ages 3-11) and DESC (ages 11-18).

DESSC - Best School in UAE

A rich

From humble beginnings in an old building grew an internationally renowned not-for-profit British Education brand that continues to thrive.

A place to start

The school opened in 1963 in the upstairs room of a villa where expatriate workers were housed.

A new home

DESS moved to its present site as the old land was needed for building the dry docks.

Beginning to thrive

Our secondary school, DESC, was established to offer a British education up to Year 13.

Coming Together

DESS and DESC join to provide a seamless 3-18 British education.

Building for Tomorrow

Our new primary school, DESS Academic City, will open in September 2025.
