Sunmarke School opened in September 2016, with the clear aim of becoming a truly exceptional school – carrying forward the legacy of Fortes Education’s heritage of excellence.
Our vision of creating a through-school that will inspire and empower students as well as enrich the communities we are part of, involved selecting inspirational teachers and embedding a value-based education that is shifting global education for the future.
With a deadline to complete the school on time and an inspection taken within the first year, our team of leaders and teachers accomplished the impossible.
Today, Sunmarke School:
- Is pioneering Positive Education in the UAE – and has become a hub for teacher PosEd training sessions from schools within the region
- Is rated as a ‘Good’ school and has been for two years in a row with the first inspection conducted after 100 days of operation
