School Day | The Aquila School - Best British School in Dubai

SCHOOL DAY

EYFS and primary children should be in school from 7:30 am and no later than 7:40 am. Secondary pupils should be in school at 7:20 am to start the school day at 7:30 am. The school day begins for all pupils by singing the national anthem.  On Monday and Friday, Mr. Howsen hosts whole school assemblies.

Due to current regulations set out by the UAE government and regulatory bodies, we have adjusted our daily routines slightly. View our re-opening plan here for detailed information.

Please note that the school week in the UAE will be changing from January 2022. Schools in the UAE will be following a Monday to Friday school week with a half-day on Fridays. Further updates are expected from the local regulator and families will be updated in relation to school timings via the school app once confirmed.
