Principal’s Welcome

Dear Parents and Carers

It is with great pleasure that I am writing to you to introduce myself as the newly appointed Principal of Newlands School.  I am very excited to be joining such an esteemed school, and group, on the next stage of the school’s journey.  We have more than 60 nationalities represented by our children and staff and this makes for a very diverse, and rich cultural and learning environment.

At Newlands School Dubai learning is at the heart of everything that we do.  We are passionate in ensuring that we enable every child to achieve their potential, both inside the classroom; and through our programme of extra-curricular activities.  Students gain an excellent quality British education in a values-based, internationally-minded environment so that they may understand, contribute to, and succeed in an ever-developing and competitive world.  Supporting students to develop key skills like cooperation, collaboration, communication and critical thinking are an important part of our educational ethos.  Our focus is to help children learn and grow as we want our students to thrive in an ever-changing world.

We encourage students and staff to be life-longer learners, with a thirst for self-improvement, and with a desire to develop as leaders, in whatever capacity they may find themselves in. We believe it is important to model respect and foster a caring school culture, where every student is valued and appreciated.

Parent partnerships are integral to learning.  It is important that strong links exist between home and school so that it can continue to develop and flourish.  We value the relationships that our school has built with parents and the wider community.  In that way we will work together to continue to give our students the best quality education that we can provide.

Thank you for visiting our website and I hope that you catch a glimpse of life here at Newlands School.
