The English College, Dubai, hosted a special celebratory event that highlighted the school's rich history spanning over three decades, introduced the new principal, and broke ground for a new building.

Under the banner 'New Beginnings', The English College, now part of International Schools Partnership (ISP), welcomed H.H. Sheikh Rashid bin Butti bin Maktoum Al Maktoum the son of H.H. Sheikh Butti Maktoum Bin Juma Al Maktoum, the founder of the school, previous leadership members, alumni, ISP team members, and school staff, parents and students.

Outgoing Principal, Mark Ford, said: 'This event commemorates over three decades of excellence in education that The English College has provided to families in the UAE, but it also looks at the future with the groundbreaking for our new building.  Today is a celebration, but also a poignant day for me, as I hand over the reigns as we introduce the new Principal, Emily Hopkinson.

Incoming Principal, Emily Hopkinson, shared her excitement about her new role and said: 'I'm thrilled to be leading the school into its new phase of growth. Joining ISP at this juncture of the school's journey means we have exciting plans designed to ensure our pupils receive unparalleled educational opportunities and innovations.'

The school's expansion plans include the addition of new classrooms, specialist learning areas, and most importantly the addition of a new three-story STEAM centre which will provide additional music and art rooms, a robotics suite, a graphic suite, a design technology suite, a textiles suite and computing and media facilities.

As part of the event the school's choir sang the school song, historic milestones of the school were shared through pictures and videos, and those in attendance heard from key leadership members, before engaging in the groundbreaking ceremony.

Bharat Mansukhani, Divisional CEO for ISP – Middle East, one of the speakers, shared this about the event: 'This 'New Beginnings' event represents a milestone for The English College, but it also highlights the commitment that ISP makes to continuously supporting our schools in getting better.

In alignment with Dubai's 2030 Vision, we are dedicated to preparing students for the future through innovative learning environments and technology integration. Our new facilities will empower students to develop skills essential for the future, positioning them as leaders and innovators in their fields. We are confident that under Emily's leadership, The English College will only strengthen its ability to provide excellence in education to our students and continue to put Learning.First.'

High-quality teaching and learning and the very best pastoral care and extra-curricular provision lie at the heart of The English College.
