Dubai English Speaking School


Dubai English Speaking School (DESS) is located in Oud Metha, near St Mary’s in ‘older’ Dubai. After consistently achieving a Good rating since Dubai school inspections began, the school achieved a Very Good Rating in 2016. It is one of a handful of schools to achieve the award.
DESS is also one of the most established schools in the UAE, opening its doors in 1963 and was the first school to offer a British based curriculum – the school itself has recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. A considerable milestone.
The Oud Metha branch has 966 pupils from KG to Grade 6. The single largest nationality is British, but as with all Dubai schools, a multitude of nationalities are represented. The 69 full time teachers and 32 assistants are also largely from the United Kingdom.
