Imagine schools with a variety of educational pathways, where the academic skills of literacy, critical thinking, innovation, numeracy, creativity, self-control and work ethic are taught in parallel the skills of wellbeing, including self-confidence, contentment, kindness, gratitude, health, and love. Welcome to Fortes Education, Dubai. We have been delivering high-quality education provision to young people for over two decades.
Our Positive Education schools foster active engagement in learning and activities. We celebrate positive emotions and accomplishments, encourage students to cultivate fulfilling relationships with others and to seek meaning and purpose in their own lives.
We set high standards and expectations for each pupil in academics and in co-curricular participation. Our high-impact learning programme lays a strong foundation that develops each pupil’s multiple intelligences through a broad range of activities in and out of the classroom. Our commitment is to provide a premium world-class “positive” education, which empowers our pupils to become innovative thinkers, socially confident life-long learners, having growth mindsets and character strengths, to flourish in an ever-changing world.
Regent International School (RIS), is a well-established Primary school following the National Curriculum for England. RIS has been consistently delivering proven results in the classroom since inception and has developed a reputation of being one of the leading schools in Dubai. In the recent inspection by the Dubai School Inspection Bureau, RIS has been judged as ‘Very Good’ and has been known to deliver proven results in the classroom since inception. We present an exciting opportunity to join the development of a secondary phase at Regent starting with Year 7 beginning in August 2020.
The ethos and structure of our Secondary School will be both innovative and unique.
Our foundling secondary students will experience an innovative British curriculum influenced by the best practice of the UK Middle and Prep School curriculum models enriched with the latest learning, teaching and digital experiences.
It is anticipated, that the school will grow, year on year, with the first cohort of students sitting GCSE and BTEC examinations in June 2024 and our first Level 3 BTEC and A-Level cohort graduating in June 2026.
The uniqueness of our curriculum offer starts with reducing the number of teachers who educate students in Years 7 and 8. The Primary/Secondary school transition is regarded as the most difficult move in a child’s education and can have a significant impact on a young person’s academic progress and personal wellbeing.
By revisiting traditional curriculum and staffing structures, the Regent Secondary School learning and personal development experience will significantly reduce student anxiety and ensure that pupils make better than expected academic progress at the start of their secondary school education.
