About Hartland International School

Located in the heart of Dubai, in a developing residential community, Hartland’s unique vantage point is the iconic landmark of the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Mall and Downtown Business area of the city. Hartland International School is in its fifth year of operation and is already an established name on the educational landscape of Dubai. Providing an enriched education through the National Curriculum for England,  our mission is a commitment to empowering young minds to think creatively, problem solve and to exceed expectations.   

We offer the National Curriculum for England and plan to offer GCSEs / IGCSEs, ‘A’ Levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. The school was recently awarded the Patrons Accreditation and Compliance Award from COBIS, The Challenge Award from NACE and is a member of BSME. 

Modelled on the richness of the best international approaches to education, some of our unique features include:

Specialist subject teachers across all year groups

Hartland opens pathways to learn from specialist subject teachers such as art, design and technology, computing, languages and music across the primary phase of the school. This enriches the learning experience for each child and ensures that the secondary transition is seamless. 

An inclusive School

With over 65 nationalities, Hartland is truly an International School and a microcosm of the very fabric of the Dubai international community landscape. We are proud that we are bringing a new and diverse global community together.

Exclusive performing arts curriculum

We are committed to the delivery of the arts across our curriculum and believe that it has a crucial place in the timetable. With specialist teachers delivering Drama and Music across the primary phase, and with external specialist partnerships for Dance and instrumental lessons, we offer a unique access to our children to experiment with expression through the arts. In addition, we have an exclusive collaboration with one of the world’s leading performing arts schools, The Sylvia Young Theatre School London, which supports us in our aim to unleash a child’s potential through expression and creativity helping build confidence and social skills necessary for future success.

Unique language immersion programme

To help students shape, retain and connect with the world, Hartland offers multiple language learning opportunities with a unique language immersion programme and an option to choose from 4 languages in the primary phase: Spanish, French, German  and Mandarin. In Year 7, we add Italian to the language options available.  

Commitment to digital innovation

Embedding digital technology into the classroom to inspire creativity, collaboration, sharing and innovation is a key component of the core curriculum. With Computing and Computational Thinking delivered from Year 1, providing the right environment that will encourage innovated thinking is an intrinsic part of our philosophy.

State-of-the-art facilities

A purpose-built campus with smaller class sizes and specialised learning spaces encourages students to thrive academically, physically, socially and creatively. Our 650 seat professional theatre provides a platform for our students and our community and whether through our LAMDA courses or our musical performances, this space allows all children to use and access state of the art facilities through their normal everyday learning.

Personalised learning

A high level of challenge and support to fit a wide variety of learning styles is a non-negotiable as we expertly build the knowledge foundation that pupils need with our holistic approach to education. We aim at all times to ignite a passion for learning through intellectual challenge, innovative approaches to both learning and teaching and a stimulating enrichment programme beyond the confines of the classroom.

Our commitment to sport and fitness is thriving and our facilities ensure that all interests are catered for.  With over 100 different enrichment opportunities every week, whether a child’s passion lies in rugby, football, netball, rounders, karate, yoga, skiing, swimming or sailing, there will be a sport that fits their profile. This is reflected in our student, staff and parent wellbeing programme and all are welcome to participate.

A Hartland education cultivates and nurtures a supportive and compassionate environment that encourages and celebrates high aspirations and levels of achievement for all. It empowers our children to think creatively, analytically, collaboratively and also independently, in a safe and happy environment with state-of-the-art new technologies. We commit to enriching the lives of children with a sense of confidence, integrity and courage, and a deep understanding of their role in global society and of the culture in which we are privileged to live. The “Hartland Way” supports and encourages each child on this journey to success.
