Headmasters Welcome

Headmasters Welcome


We are proud and delighted to be leading Victoria English School and to be part of the extended school community here in Sharjah. The school strives to unlock the potential of all its children, identifying strengths and supporting areas for development. We recognise that no two children are alike and they learn and progress differently. With this in mind we aim to challenge and extend our children in a learning environment that fosters inquiry, critical thinking and creativity. We delivered a structured yet broad-based curriculum that is firmly rooted in the National Curriculum of England and Wales. Our teachers share a single philosophy in which we aim to inspire, motivate and challenge students in all aspects of learning.

Victoria English School is recognised as a leader in British International Education in Sharjah for over 19 years. Our students are global citizens from over 70 nationalities. Our curriculum reflects the best elements of the British National Curriculum of England and Wales.

As a school we focus on the holistic education of all our students. Each student is unique and our teachers collaborate to bring out and develop the talents in every student. Our students are strong linguists, and we have a strong history of success in the areas of Math and Science. Victoria English School Graduates can be found at leading Universities throughout the United Arab Emirates and the World. We focus on preparing students for success in a smaller global yet more competitive world. As teachers we are preparing our students for further education and employment in many current and future industries.

VES students are confident, balanced and caring. They enjoy opportunities to explore technology and participate in the Arts, Health and Physical Education. Our teachers are always exploring opportunities to link academic studies with real life experiences so that our students can see the connections with what they are learning with the real world. The best part of my working day as Headmaster is when I have the opportunity to visit classes and interact with out wonderful students and teachers. I always enjoy celebrating student success and it is a real honour for me to be the Headmaster at such a wonderful school.  Visit my blog to read more.
