Approach - Regent International School | British Curriculum | Best School in Dubai
Key Stage 1 (Year 1 & 2): Approach
Empowering our Youngest Learners to Achieve their Goals

We offer personalised education to each child by delivering an outstanding curriculum which centres around each child’s passions, interests and needs. We employ an engaging, creative and explorative style of learning enabling children to achieve outstanding academic results. We believe that children need a reason and purpose to learn. Hence lessons are based around real-life outcomes and achievements. For example, when teaching children to write we do not just practise letter-writing. Instead, children write letters asking to go on trips, or write advertisements for shows they have created or write “wanted posters” for lost toys. In this way children are fully engaged in their learning applying skills that they have been taught in class.

At Regent, children are not judged only on academics but on how they progress holistically. Each child has an individual target based on something that they want to achieve whether that be performing a dance in front of the class, learning to paint or throwing a basketball into a hoop. This empowers children at a young age to see that they can achieve goals that they set themselves which is a powerful message to send to our youngest learners. This approach combined with our Positive Education philosophy ensures that children learn how to progress and assess their individual character strengths to face every day challenges both inside and out of class.

KHDA Report

My role model is Elon Musk and to become a tech entrepreneur.

Regent has given me the skills and confidence to get there. In a variety of STEAM & Project-based Learning projects, I have worked with classmates learning to code in Python and Java, build robotic vehicles, and construct IoT sensors. We have won multiple competitions in the UAE and abroad for our tech projects and talent. Remember my name because I promise you will hear a lot more about me.

RIS EYFS student

Possibilities are infinite at Regent for a child.

There are no limits to let my child’s imagination grow at Regent. He has become extremely ambitious in his thinking and outlook and what he believes he can do, which is great. Children are encouraged to take chances, try anything and not be afraid.

RIS Parent

The strong sense of community makes Regent more than just a great place for study.

It’s a great place for families to get to know each other and make new friends. The Regent community spirit is outstanding.
