The last few years have played havoc with our lives and if you’ve been on salary cuts or had to change job, then you might be looking to tighten your belt when it comes to some of the major costs you must pay in Dubai – like schooling.
We’re delighted to be working with Capital School, a gem of a British school, located near Dubai International Airport. Capital School offers a true British education based on the UK curriculum and one of their top advantages for us Brits, is that 100% of their teachers have trained and have teaching experience in the UK. Unlike other schools at a similar price point, parents are guaranteed that their child will be taught by a native English-speaking teacher.
As British mums, there’s every eventuality that we’ll end up back in the UK or our children will continue their education journey there and Capital School really focus on offering a real British education experience as well as affordable fees. But don’t take our word for it, here’s what a Capital School parent has to say!

Capital School were delighted to receive a “Good” rating from BSO (British Schools Overseas) in June 2021, the UK Department of Education’s overseer of international British Schools, stating Capital School demonstrated a ‘traditional British style of education’ and noted ‘teaching is strong in all phases of the school’. In terms of the students, the BSO report stated that ‘pupils show tremendous enthusiasm and exemplary behaviour’ as well as the teachers showing ‘exceptional levels of care and kindness’.
