An international British School in Dubailand, next to the Villa, Dubai
Part of the International Schools Partnership, The Aquila School opened in September 2018 to serve the growing educational needs of the surrounding communities of The Villa, Dubailand, Silicon Oasis and across Dubai. We cater for children from FS1 to Year 7 (ages 4 to 12), and in September 2020 we will expand to offer Year 8.
We offer an exciting and creative curriculum, based on the British curriculum, combining science, technology, engineering, maths, and the arts, to children enriched to meet the needs of our culturally diverse community.
We have been rated Outstanding in all areas by British School Overseas, and we were also awarded the Best Design Education Project of the Year at the Design Middle East Awards 2018, a testament to the quality and design of The Aquila School’s campus and facilities.
We’re proud too that our Leadership Team successfully elevated their previous school to an Outstanding rating, so you can be sure your child’s education is in safe hands at one of the best new British schools in Dubai.
