British education has achieved a reputation for quality and is recognised and respected around the world. One of the huge benefits is how transferable it is – students can move seamlessly from country to country or move back to the UK while studying the National Curriculum of England.

Dubai British School Jumeirah Park follows the National Curriculum for England, boasting a broad and balanced programme, promoting high academic standards and a wide range of extra-curricular activities. 


The curriculum is organised into blocks of years called ‘key stages’ (KS).

The key stages are divided into:

  • Foundation Stage (ages 3-5)
  • Key Stage 1 (Years 1 - 2)
  • Key Stage 2 (Years 3 - 6)
  • Key Stage 3 (Years 7 - 9)
  • Key Stage 4 (Years 10 - 11)
  • Key Stage 5 (Sixth Form)
