Our mission at Sunmarke School is to empower students with a high quality value-based education that inspires students to achieve their fullest potential and flourish in a changing world.
We are proud to offer a wide range of curriculum pathways, which cater for the diverse needs and interests of 21st century learners. We offer the National Curriculum for England and the GCSE and A Level programmes. BTEC qualifications are now available for students in Years 10-13, in addition to select ASDAN Short Courses and Preparing for Adulthood programmes. Sunmarke is also a candidate school* pursuing authorisation as an IB World School for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme and Career-related Programme.
We facilitate a rigorous, enriched and holistic education, emphasising academic excellence and participation in diverse extracurriculars. This enables children to achieve outstanding academic, social and personal success, and to become valuable and effective members of society.
Why a Sunmarke Education?
Sunmarke is a leader in Positive Education (PosEd) which is a paradigm shift in global education. Research has shown that happiness is the key to learning and success. PosEd is based on outstanding teaching and the science of positive psychology, happiness and wellbeing. The philosophy of PosEd permeates every aspect of our school, enabling Sunmarke children to flourish learning skills for ‘Academics and Achievement’, such as critical thinking, literacy and numeracy, as well as the skills of ‘Character development’ and ‘Wellbeing’, such as resilience, confidence, self-esteem, happiness, kindness, gratitude, discipline and a strong work ethic.
All our Senior Leaders and Teachers are trained in Positive Education and best practices in education, and are chosen for their inspirational teaching styles. Our school is led by our Executive Principal, Mr. Keith Miller, a renown principal, who has led several schools to ‘outstanding’ in Dubai. He is further supported by a strong and dynamic senior leadership team who have each taken their previous schools to ‘outstanding’.
We offer the National Curriculum for England and the GCSE and A Level programmes. From the third year of operation, Sunmarke will offer the IB Diploma Programme in Year 12 and 13. We offer a rigorous, enriched and holistic education emphasising academic excellence and participation in diverse extracurriculars enabling children to achieve outstanding academic, social and personal success.
