The Primary Stage at Glendale

Learning in our Primary Stage goes beyond just memorising facts and figures. Our experiential learning allows children to develop deeper understanding of key concepts.

Explore the Primary Stage at Glendale International School, where every step in a child’s educational journey is celebrated with joy and enthusiasm. As one of the leading primary schools in Dubai, we are dedicated to creating a nurturing and inspiring atmosphere that resonates with the spirit, skills and multifaceted talents of our students.

Being a world-class primary school in Dubai, Glendale International School provides an inspiring and nurturing hub where young minds can flourish and thrive. Embracing the National Curriculum of England, our primary school journey is thoughtfully segmented into two key stages: Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and 2) and Key Stage 2 (Year 3 to 6). This structure paves the way for a seamless and enriching educational experience, guiding each child through an exciting phase of personal and academic growth.

Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and 2)

In Key Stage 1 of primary schooling, our young learners embark on an educational adventure, where the foundations laid in the Early Years are built upon with increasing complexity and depth. The focus is on nurturing core skills in literacy and numeracy, while also introducing them to a wider world of knowledge and ideas. Through interactive lessons and playful activities, we encourage our students to explore, question, and create, laying a solid groundwork for their future growth.

Key Stage 2 (Year 3 to 6)

As students progress to Key Stage 2, the primary schooling curriculum expands, offering greater challenges and opportunities for deeper exploration. Our dedicated educators guide each child in developing critical thinking, problem-solving abilities, and a richer understanding of various subjects. We emphasise the importance of independent learning and personal responsibility, ensuring that our students are well-prepared for the next stages of their academic success.

The Glendale Experience: What Makes Us Unique

At Glendale International School, we are redefining education through our creative and enriched British curriculum that is as unique as each of our students. Our educational philosophy is centred around mastery of overarching concepts that bring real-life context into the classroom, connecting and integrating all areas of learning. This innovative framework not only stimulates intellectual curiosity but also fosters practical understanding, transforming the educational journey, making learning both meaningful and enjoyable. 

We strongly believe that true understanding comes from deep engagement with subjects, which is  why we encourage our children to immerse themselves in learning, offering ample opportunities for practice and providing real-time feedback. This method ensures not just the acquisition of knowledge but the development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

At Glendale, learning is not a passive experience. It’s an active journey of exploration and discovery. Our students are not just recipients of knowledge; they are creators, thinkers, and innovators. They learn to view the world not just as it is, but as it could be, equipped with the skills, confidence, and passion to make a difference. Here, each student is on a unique path to becoming a curious, compassionate, and confident individual, ready to thrive in an ever-changing world.
