The Arbor School Dubai has ecoliteracy, sustainability, and environmental justice at its heart and is underpinned by the English National Curriculum – it is different, and so should you be. The facilities are truly unique, and include six biodomes, learning gardens, food production facilities and an eco-exploratorium. We offer authentic and experiential learning, but we are also rigorous and have high expectations. We believe that an Arbor education will equip our students and the community to address the critical challenges faced by humankind today and into the future.
Our reputation is excellent, and we are regarded as a school that is purpose-driven and special. Our ambition is to open further schools in the UAE and beyond and we have recently started work on Arbor Abu Dhabi. You will be joining an ambitious and expanding company with opportunities to develop your career further, and an executive board that is innovative and open-minded.
An exciting opportunity has arisen to take our secondary school through its next important stage of development as we open Year 10 in September 2022, and Years 11, 12 and 13 in the subsequent academic years.
You will be ambitious and committed to our vision; you will know how to build a strong team that is focussed on excellence, is inclusive, and understands the power of student led-enquiry, place based and project-based learning. You will also know how to engage with our community, how to promote our school effectively and how to bring out the best in people. You will understand how to implement rigorous GCSE and A-Level programmes, BTECs and other appropriate qualifications and alternative pathways. You will be well-qualified, have a proven track record gained within a leading international school and you will know how to embed outstanding teaching and learning. Experience of inspection frameworks would be an advantage and the ability to inspire others a must.
If this describes you and you are keen to join a school at the cutting edge of education, we would love to hear from you.
