About Victoria English School
Victoria English School has been a leading and dedicated provider of Foundation Stage, Primary and Secondary education in Sharjah, UAE, for over 18 years. It has established its excellent reputation serving the local, national and international communities. Our student roll is almost 1000, with approximately 70 nationalities, giving a truly international flavour. The school offers a quality "British styled" curriculum with its roots firmly embedded in the National Curriculum of England and Wales. The curriculum, which is both broad and balanced, is adapted to reflect local culture and other educational influences from the Ministry of Education both in Sharjah and nationally. Our students complete their studies here at VES by sitting the internationally recognised International General Certificates in Education (IGCSEs) and the General Certificate of Education (GCE) Advanced courses (both AS and A2 levels). The medium of instruction is in English. Acceptance to the school is subject to successfully completing the appropriate age related assessment.
Here at VES we not only want our students to achieve academic success, we also recognise that they all progress academically at individual rates. It is important for us to work with students to achieve their individual potential; to challenge and to push and to encourage and motivate our students. Our aim is to equip them with the skills to think independently, research, question, analyse and evaluate.
Beyond academic expectations we also focus on our students" personal and social development. We want our students to be confident, considerate, respectful and globally aware. Such skills are developed through relationships established between teachers and students and between students themselves.
Moreover, we are looking for teachers that share the same values to join our school. Our school environment for teachers is a open minded, supportive and progressive atmosphere.
