Al Ain English Speaking School (AAESS) was founded in 1978. We have just completed a 35million dirham expansion including classrooms, indoor swimming pool and a full sports hall with running gallery.
A process of continual improvement underlines further planned developments. AAESS is based upon a British schooling system. Children can be admitted in the Nursery class, when they have achieved the age of 3 years by 30 August, and continue to take A-Level examinations at age 18. The curriculum is that of the National Curriculum of England. Pupils take the SATS tests at the end of Key Stage One (Year 2), and Key Stage Two (Year 6).
External GCSE and IGCSE exams are taken in Years 10 and 11, and AS/A2-Levels in Year 12 and 13. Children may also be prepared for Common Entrance Exams, which are the normal means of entry into independent Secondary Schools in UK and elsewhere. It is a priority of the school that the students are prepared for, and can transfer to, British, American and International Universities.
The school curriculum is academically broad, and appropriate to the multinational and multicultural nature of the pupils. Music, Physical Education, Creative Arts occupy secure places in the programme as well as traditional academic subjects. The school is committed to offering appropriate courses at all levels in Information and Communication Technology.
The school is licensed by the UAE Ministry of Education and, according to its directive; a programme of Arabic Language, Arabic Social Studies and Islamic Studies (for Muslim children) is conducted.
