Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the School of Research Science in Dubai (SRS Dubai). We are a forward-looking international school that never tires to push the boundaries to be the best that we can be. By definition, therefore, we are always on an improvement journey to achieve and maintain world-class provision and quality of education.

Our central mission is to provide our students with the best possible foundation to build their future. We do this by delivering an outstanding curriculum – British and Arabic – taught by subject and phase specialists, relentlessly promoting the full growth of the student, both academic and personal. Our Student Learner Profile (SLP) is well-embedded in the life of the school community, developing in students the competencies they need to become responsible global citizens.

Choosing SRS means exposing students to memorable learning experiences of exceptional quality that prepare them to take their rightful place as future leaders of the world.

History

The School of Research Science was founded in 1998 to provide a high-quality education to the children of local Emirati families. Since that time, the school has seen a dramatic expansion linked directly to its growth in popularity, also amongst non-Emirati families whose children now comprise approximately one-third of the school’s intake.

A powerful vision coupled with strong ambition and a clear sense of direction has enabled the school to grow and become a very successful all-through, 3 to 18 school with a student roll of over 4000.

Building on this success, the Founder of the school invested in a purpose built primary and secondary school in Al-Warqa with state-of-the-art specialist facilities and a twenty-first century learning environment. High quality provision means that our students achieve high standards in both their academic and personal development.

Vision

School of Research Science vision is to establish leading nation wide centres of educational excellence that are founded upon the highest international standards.

Enlighten young minds with the gift of powerful knowledge.

Mission

To help our students become citizens of the world whose knowledge, ideas and actions will make them successful people and role models for future generations. Our goal is to inspire our community of students and to promote moral, intellectual, physical and academic excellence so that each of them may rise to honourable achievements and contribute to the common good.

ENROLLMENT Requirements

School of Research Science is an academically inclusive school where we recognise and nurture the uniqueness of every child. We have created a learning environment in which every child is encouraged to define their own success and motivated to excel.

Entry requirements

This environment is created through the combination of highly skilled teachers, the rigor of the National curriculum for England and the US Massachusetts curriculum, top class facilities and resources for learning.

Our goal is for all new students to successfully transition both academically and socially into our community. Once admitted, students will participate in a variety of assessments to determine the best placement, academic programme and levels of potential support. We host a variety of parent information meetings and student orientation meetings for each student throughout the year at SRS.

Places in Foundation Stage are offered on application. Students attend a short play-based assessment.
Admissions to Year 1- 10 are confirmed following a review of the child’s most recent school report and entrance assessments in English and mathematics.

The Ministry of Education requires all families to submit the above mentioned documents for each child entering education in Dubai.
