Welcome message from the Principal

Mr. Craig Lamshed

Cambridge International School, Dubai is a Foundation Stage to Year 13 School, teaching the National Curriculum for England including a range of IGCSE, AS level, A level and BTEC qualifications. We believe in providing high quality, outstanding value education in a supportive, friendly, dynamic and reflective and challenging learning environment.

We offer outstanding learning opportunities where our students attain results that are regularly better than international standards. We are committed to continually reviewing our progress in order to find ways to further improve.

At Cambridge we recognise that learning does not only happen in the classroom. Our students regularly excel in extracurricular activities including sports, drama, music and debating at local, regional and international level. We are always looking at developing additional opportunities for our students to enhance their learning including field trips, conferences and international visits.

With more than 2500 students from over 65 different nationalities the diversity of our students are one of our greatest strengths. They are confident, friendly, highly motivated, morally aware, culturally respectful and socially responsible. We place a great importance on the ability of our students to be partners in owning, leading and developing their learning with a large number of our students involved in our student leadership and community service programs.

We firmly believe that education is a three way partnership between students, parents and teachers. We are committed to fostering excellent relationships with parents to ensure the very best support.  CIS provides many opportunities for students to develop in all aspects of their lives aimed at reaching their full potential as confident and valuable world citizens.

We are proud to be one of the longest established and highest achieving schools in Dubai. Cambridge is an excellent school with a great atmosphere of learning. We look forward to welcoming you into our school community.
