Our Curriculum

Dubai Heights Academy bases its programme on the English National Curriculum, the body of skills and knowledge approved by the British Government and taught throughout England and Wales, as well as international schools worldwide.

High academic standards depend on an excellent working environment, top international facilities, educational resources and wonderful teachers and faculty. Dubai Heights Academy has been developed with all of this in place, so that students have every opportunity to develop and learn. Our programme is well balanced, providing time for music, drama and sports alongside our outstanding academic curriculum. Our teaching approach has the flexibility and adaptability to underpin a sound academic English language education, which prepares students to move from Primary into Secondary school, to follow on to prestigious universities worldwide and for success in their future professional and personal lives.

Children aged 3 to 5 are welcome into our Foundation Stage. Once children progress into Primary School, the English National Curriculum is organised into blocks of years called ‘Key Stages’ (KS).

Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 are referred to as Primary Education:

  • Key Stage 1 welcomes students aged 5 to 7 (Years 1 and 2)
  • Key Stage 2 welcomes students aged 7 to 11  (Years 3 to 6)
