Imagine schools with a variety of educational pathways where the skills of achievement, such as literacy, critical thinking, numeracy, discipline, and work ethic are taught alongside the skills of wellbeing, such as confidence, contentment, kindness, gratitude, health, and love. Welcome to Fortes Education, Dubai. We have been delivering high-quality education provision to young people for over four decades.

Our schools have a world-class range of learning and teaching opportunities, with a suite of Signature Programmes unrivaled in Dubai. With unique experiences in Environmental and Sustainability Studies, students learn in Forest School settings, as well as utilising cutting-edge hydroponic technology to examine how science can support possible ways of life for space explorers. Our world-class STEAM programme offers students an incredible opportunity to apply their learning in solving real-world problems, from Foundation Stage through to Year 9. Preparing our students for the future we also run best-in-class mini-MBA programmes for our Year 10 to 13 students in conjunction with the University of Birmingham and the Peter Jones Academy for business and entrepreneurship our Primary students. We are technologically innovative and run comprehensive AI programmes for students in all core subjects, as well as deepening other subjects through Augmented and Virtual Reality AR/VR experiences. We have outstanding performing arts opportunities with fantastic facilities and amazing teachers to help our more creative students truly find their voice.

At the core of our approach is our pioneering work in Positive Education. Through this approach our schools foster active engagement in learning and activities, celebrating positive emotions and accomplishments, encouraging students to cultivate fulfilling relationships with others and to seek meaning and purpose in their own lives.

Judged by the Dubai School Inspection Bureau (DSIB) as a ‘Very Good’ School and ‘Outstanding’ in our British Schools Overseas (BSO) inspection, we set high standards and expectations for each pupil in academics and in co-curricular participation. Our high-impact learning programme lays a strong foundation that develops each pupil’s multiple intelligences through a broad range of activities in and out of the classroom. Our commitment is to provide a premium world-class “positive” education, which empowers our pupils to become innovative thinkers, socially confident lifelong learners, having growth mindsets and character strengths, to flourish in an ever-changing world.

As a result of our outstanding performance and exceptional popularity, we launched our new secondary school phase two years ago, and now students can continue to enjoy the Regent International School experience all the way through to Year 11, I/GCSEs, and BTECs (Level 2). We follow an innovative project-based curriculum, with excellent student-teacher ratios and personalised learning, and this combination has seen our secondary school attract significant attention in the region. We have created an inspiring curriculum where students explore, research, and solve real-world problems, thinking critically and creatively, working collaboratively, and leading empathetically. You will make a valued contribution to our team as we extend the curriculum to Year 13 through to ‘A’ Levels and BTECs (Level 3) in the near future. So, we are excited to invite you to join us in further developing our highly popular and innovative school.
