Regent International School Dubai | National Curriculum of England

Our School Overview


Regent International School (RIS) is a highly-regarded British National Curriculum, FS to Year 6 School and is considered to be the pioneer in Positive Education in the UAE. We have been consistently rated by KHDA's inspection bureau, DSIB, as a “Good School with Outstanding Features”. The latest report also highlights “outstanding personal development of students”, “outstanding quality of teaching in the Foundation Stage, “exemplary student behaviour and relationships” and our “outstanding curriculum quality and adaptation”

The strength of our teaching methodology and dynamism of our teachers have consistently allowed RIS students to achieve their personal aspirations - academically, socially and personally.

Continuing in the rich tradition of a Fortes Education school, RIS’ education philosophy has been designed to provide an education that fulfils the following six objectives:

Education for Life

Our school offers students an Education for Life – imparting knowledge and skills so students can develop their character, personal leadership, work ethic, compassion and values, and become thoughtful, confident, principled and dynamic individuals in the world.

RIS is full of opportunities for personal development, achievement and enjoyment. We have a holistic and positive approach to education based on academic achievements, a diverse and strong extra-curricular activities programme, and personalised care to each student’s development. We encourage students to develop their strengths and realise their ambitions.

Learning for Life

Empowered independent learning is a hallmark of a Fortes Education school. We cultivate in students a keenness to learn by thinking for themselves, asking questions and solving problems. We develop students into bright, free-thinking individuals who apply their knowledge and skills to the real world through inquiry, interaction and practical activity.

In developing a student’s ability to learn independently, we enable students to identify and develop their interests, appreciate cultural diversity and become life-long learners.

Results for Life

RIS imparts an all-round education through an inspired delivery of the National Curriculum. Our education emphasises internationalism and creativity, fosters positive self-esteem, and encourages the pursuit of excellence all within an enlightened environment.

Practising Fortes’ education philosophy, RIS’ approach to learning is positive, innovative, enriched, flexible and inquiry-based. The curriculum model delivers the core subject areas of Mathematics, Languages, Science and the Humanities, providing differentiated learning to suit a student’s individual needs.

Our curriculum incorporates innovative teaching methodologies, regular assessments and consistent reporting strategies while constantly recognising and rewarding student achievement. While students are encouraged to excel academically, this is not the only measure of success. Our goal is to prepare students for life so they can achieve positive results throughout life’s journey.

Values for Life

Strength of character and inner confidence come from strong values that allow us to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world. Over time, happiness and fulfilment come from our social interactions, contribution to friends and society, and service to community. We come to realise that relationships within our personal, professional and community networks are founded on respect, friendship, trust, and acceptance of and service to others.

Embedding Fortes Education’s scientifically researched and proven “Education in Human Values” programme into the curriculum, RIS encourages students to develop virtues such as courage, honesty, compassion and humility. Students get involved in community activities, volunteering, and charitable initiatives. Through our Positive Education philosophy, students develop their values through various value-based school activities and a curriculum that focuses on building the foundations of character and integrity.

Health & Happiness for Life

We believe one of the fundamental objectives of education should be to impart an attitude, and knowledge and skills so students learn how to achieve health and happiness in their journey through life because that is what will come to define their true success.

Continuing in the tradition of a Fortes Education school, RIS helps students develop the mindset and skills so they enjoy and achieve health and happiness in their journey through school and life.

Partners for Life

As a Fortes Education school, RIS believes in maintaining links with our students and graduates, fostering links amongst graduates, and encouraging them to come back and share their successes and stories with our students.

Furthermore, we encourage parents actively engage in their child’s education as studies have shown that positive and productive links between home and school are vital to a child's development. We have an active Parent Engagement Programme providing parents a platform that enables them to participate in their child's education as well as campus life.

Core Values

Our school inculcates in students strong values to help them meet the challenges of an ever demanding world.
