The school offers co-education up to Year 6 and operates as a girls’ only school from Year 7 onwards, with state-of-the-art facilities and a vibrant community.

PRIMARY SCHOOL AT AL SHOHUB

Students in the Primary School follow the English National Curriculum which is adapted to incorporate UAE culture and heritage. Our bespoke curriculum means subjects are taught under the umbrella of UAE focused themes, whilst ensuring the skills, knowledge and understanding of the English National Curriculum are being met. Students are encouraged to develop skills such as independence, enquiry, resilience, collaboration, and leadership. Teachers maintain consistently high expectations of their students and reinforce this in a supportive manner, whilst ensuring students are always challenged appropriately.

COMMUNITY-CENTRIC SCHOOLWITH STATE-OF-THE-ARTFACILITIES AND ACTIVE PARENTS ASSOCIATION

Every parent of Al Shohub automatically becomes a member of the Al Shohub Parent Association (ASPA) when their child joins the school. Both mothers and fathers are encouraged to engage in their child’s learning and the life of the school, ensuring that every family feels welcomed, supported, and involved within the Al Shohub community. The school is conveniently situated in Khalifa City A and encourages students to take advantage of the incredible facilities on offer, whether passionate about sports, academics, or social activities. Additionally, to further support the community the campus offers local groups the opportunity to utilize these facilities outside of school hours.

DEVELOPING THE FEMALE LEADERS OF TOMORROW:

Secondary students follow the English National Curriculum, encompassing the United Arab Emirates’ traditions and culture at its heart. The bespoke curriculum ensures that students develop into confident, able and influential women who are ‘Leaders of Tomorrow’. Through iGCSE and A level programmes of study, senior students become equipped with internationally recognised qualifications that ensure they are self-assured, compassionate, lifelong learners. Students are inspired to become global thinkers whilst leading their own learning. Highly qualified educators create an academic environment that offers intellectual excitement; providing a range of opportunities that develop students to reach their full potential. A culture of high expectations and standards empower these Emirati women to be articulate, emotionally intelligent and technologically advanced in order to navigate their way in a complex and ever-changing world.

THE EARLY-YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE

During our Early Years Foundation Stage your child will be learning through well-planned and challenging play activities. We focus on social and communication skills, listening, speaking, concentrating, and forming constructive relationships, and we also develop early literacy and mathematics skills that will help children be ready to start Year 1. Our “in the moment” planning enables us to use the best of the British Early Years Curriculum and incorporate the children’s interests. This ensures leaning is relevant and meaningful for the children, and encourages them to take ownership of their own learning. Our qualified teachers give students a positive first experience of school and we encourage a love of learning in our students, nurturing essential skills to succeed, whilst demonstrating characteristics of effective learning.
