Why Choose DESSC?

Dubai English Speaking School and College (DESSC) has been at the forefront of education in Dubai, since the establishment of our primary school, Dubai English Speaking School (DESS) in 1963. A fully inclusive, not for profit leader in the sector, our heritage alongside our strong vision has ensured a well-established global reputation.

As an 'outstanding' rated British school in Dubai, we pride ourselves in cultivating a strong sense of community at DESSC and that supportive community is abundant. We value partnerships and collaboration with our parents, with many opportunities for parents to be involved.

Teaching at DESSC centres on the individual and encourages students to study independently, learn at their own pace and to think for themselves – a vital preparation for the opportunities ahead of them. By heavily focusing on pastoral care, we nurture well-rounded and self-confident students, to help them to develop the skills they need to manage the next steps in their future.
