Dear Students and Parents,

I wish you a very warm welcome to the new academic year at Al Dhafra. Ours is a family school set in the heart of Al Ain where we have been helping students achieve their potential and realise their dreams for many years.

We are a school offering the English National Curriculum up until the end of Grade 8 and then a choice of either an English or American curriculum through to the end of Grade 12. Once again, our recent Cambridge Examination results have been most pleasing and last year’s Grade 12 alumnae have moved successfully into strong university courses both within the UAE and beyond.

We are a warm, friendly and caring community, where professional teaching is underpinned by strong shared values and complemented by outstanding pastoral care. Our greatest asset is our students and we value enormously the relationship with them, their parents, and their families.

This is an exciting year ahead. We will be visited both by the Itiqaa Inspection Team and the AdvancED review team. We have the strongest of reputations locally in Al Ain and we look forward to having this ratifies by other professionals whilst also welcoming their further guidance on our pathway ahead.

It is my privilege to lead the school as Principal and we are all looking forward to a happy and successful year ahead. Al Dhafra is well-known for operating an 'open door' policy and we are very proud of this. You are always welcome to contact us if you have any queries whatsoever. My own email, for your records, is

I wish colleagues, students and parents a blessed and healthy year ahead.

Kind Regards,
Mr. Roger
