Regent probably has one of the leading digital and computing departments amongst schools in the UAE. A state-of-the-art ‘Applied Innovations Department’ led by an inspirational Regent teacher and thought leader in digital education, provides students with industry-ready and real-world digital skills. The enriched Regent computing curriculum ignites curiosity, nurtures creativity and develops grit – all critical to flourish in the workplace and life.

Our students use high-quality technology resources to personalise learning and access the latest software programmes. Students become power users of Microsoft OneNote, Teams, Office 365 and SharePoint, as well a range of apps strengthening the effectiveness in their learning.

Regent’s Computer Science curriculum deepens student’s knowledge on topics such as robotics, artificial intelligence, graphics, media, web development, Raspberry Pi computers, codeable electronics, and Python programming, preparing them for the GCSEs and A-levels and Computer Science as a career, and enabling them to become fluent technologists given that technology is critical in so many of today’s careers.

Students can also opt to join the “XTeam Elite” where they are called upon to innovate, invent and create using STEAM and design thinking processes solutions to real-life problems. Through this intense and highly enjoyable experience, they learn industry prototyping, and workplace teamwork and leadership skills. The Regent Universe & Regent Galaxy gives KS3 students real-world opportunities to develop an enterprising ethos to create with code, lead & collaborate & innovate their learning with authentic audiences, no matter their favourite subject may be.

By the end of Key Stage 3 (Year 7 to 9), students are securely grounded with industry 4.0-ready skills and aptitudes and are ready to transition into Year 10.

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.

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.
