Dear All,

Welcome to Horizon International School

As a recognised British Overseas School (BSO) we are at the heart of our centrally located community in Dubai. We offer an education which will be familiar to our students and parents from the United Kingdom as well as a positive inclusive education to over 50 additional nationalities on our roll. The enhanced curriculum is structured to enable everyone to enjoy rich learning and teaching experiences supported by the wide range of facilities and opportunities within our amazing city.

Supporting our curriculum, we also have an excellent range of academic and pastoral facilities, such as our science labs, eight lane swimming pool, a large indoor air-conditioned gymnasium and our fully fitted theatre amongst many more. These enable us to provide a stimulating and vibrant curriculum experience from Foundation to 6th Form. At the same time I am very aware that facilities alone do not make good schools. Our strength is the way the school nurtures and supports all of our students to ensure they are secure and happy and to ensure they will achieve their potential and perform to their highest ability. At Horizon, we understand how challenging a relocation can be, we support all our new students to quickly settle, make friends and ensure they find learning here to be fun and engaging at all levels.

Extensive after school clubs and societies also enable our students to expand their learning and extend their time together. Our wide range of externally run evening activity programmes also reach out to our adult community and you are very welcome to join in activities including music tuition, fitness, dance, drama and sports sessions to name a few.

At its heart, Horizon International School is a vibrant and exciting learning centre supporting all of our community. You are very welcome to come and visit us to experience this for yourself and I look forward to meeting you very soon.

Yours sincerely,

Mr. Lee Davies (MBA, NPQH, Bed Hons)
