For more than four decades Sharjah English School has been the school of choice for families seeking an excellent and challenging UK education for their children. Our school site near University City is readily accessible to students from Sharjah, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah, Mirdiff and most of Dubai.
As a not-for-profit school, SES is dedicated to providing an outstanding education comparable to the best schools in the Gulf region and internationally. Our educational ethos will always remain focused on quality teaching and learning, rather than any commercial imperative; this, we claim, has a profound impact on both our students and teachers.
As the smallest not-for-profit school in the UAE, SES can claim to combine strong educational values with an intimate, community atmosphere.
Since the establishment of the secondary section of the school in 2005, we have catered for students aged 3 to 19, with classes now running from Foundation through to A-level, following a broad, challenging and balanced curriculum based on the National Curriculum of England and Wales.
The school is inclusive and can cater for pupils of all abilities; what is important is not where a child starts from, but not limiting where they can finish.
In addition to academic success, the school offers a varied and enviable range of extracurricular opportunities and has established a proud reputation for music, arts and success in sport. The Sports Hall, swimming pool and extensive grassed playing areas are amongst the most impressive school sporting facilities in the country. The Performing Arts Building, opened by The Ruler of Sharjah in 2012, has greatly enhanced our facilities by providing us with an outstanding auditorium, whole-school library, a new ICT Suite, Learning Support Rooms, Music Rooms etc.
A developing school, fully staffed by UK qualified teachers, SES prides itself on a friendly and inclusive atmosphere, and enjoys close links with both parents and the community. Growth in our student numbers is gradual and controlled; the school is determined to retain the feel and characteristics of a small and intimate institution, where the needs of every student are catered for.
Enrolment now stands at 850 children. 60% of our children are in Foundation / Primary, where we have three form intake. Secondary operates two form groups in each year, moving to three forms in 2019.
SES students represent over fifty nationalities, and our diversity is one of our greatest strengths.
