We offer a high-quality British STEAM curriculum to children, enriched to meet the needs of our culturally diverse community. We cater for children from Early Years Foundation Stage to Year 6, and in September 2019 we will expand to Year 7.
Our curriculum prepares our children for a complex, challenging and competitive future - we enhance the traditional STEM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) with the just-as-important Arts. Our STEAM curriculum combines the best of STEM learning, whilst integrating design, art and performance, to give life to learning.
Every child will learn through a design-thinking mindset – a structured approach to learning, collaboration and problem-solving. High challenge, collaborative problem-solving and problem-seeking activities challenge our children to go full STEAM ahead, enabling them to take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process.
The Aquila School in Dubai embraces the individuality of every learner. We support learning through a robust, student-focused curriculum, and enriching after-school programmes. The Aquila School focuses relentlessly on each child’s ability to amaze. Whether through mentoring, enrichment or personalised study, The Aquila School recognises and nurtures each child’s gifts and talents so that they amaze themselves and inspire others.
To do this, we are committed to:
Having worked in the UAE for six years and now entering my twentieth year as a principal, I am excited by the unique opportunity to employ brilliant and experienced teachers and create an amazing school.
As well as focusing on academic excellence, our curriculum is based on technology (food, design and IT), as well as music and the arts.
We believe in providing students with ‘amazing learning’, helping children to learn to levels that amaze them and to inspire them to be successful now and equip them to be successful later. We want Aquila children to be resilient, independent, thoughtful and caring individuals, well equipped for future work and life experiences.
We look forward to welcoming you to The Aquila School soon.
The Aquila School believes that providing children with an eco-friendly environment will instil a sense of responsibility towards the world. We offer unique environmental initiatives not provided by any other school in Dubai, including:
Children will gain an understanding that much of what has been grown can be eaten and enjoyed. Such unique, hands-on learning experiences enhance and embed classroom learning. The learning environment at Aquila celebrates our best use of natural resources and how we might grow and develop a sustainable life to enrich our local communities.
