Star International School Al Twar, a bespoke Foundation Stage, Primary and Secondary British school in Dubai, announces its official school expansion with a brand new campus to not only provide its Secondary student body with a new facility, but to welcome new students into its Post-16 program.
The British curriculum school is now preparing to open its new campus in time for the fall term starting in September 2021, with the hopes of creating a smooth transition for its eldest students to continue their academic journey into their final secondary years on new school grounds.
The announcement comes just months after celebrating the school’s recent successes in achieving high academic rankings by KHDA for its curriculum and outstanding results, outlining a promising future for the years ahead. Star International School Al Twar’s newly acquired campus sits in Al Qusais, only minutes away from its main school grounds in Al Twar, with the aim of keeping both campuses near each other, allowing for a seamless transition for all Secondary students, including those entering Post-16.
With its new, contemporary Al Qusais campus, the school aims to offer an exceptional education fostering global citizens who are true ambassadors of change. The Secondary and Post-16 programme (Years 12 and 13) is embedded with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning, rich extracurricular activities, and has a focus on information and communications technology (ICT) and student wellbeing.
The new campus possesses large open spaces, promoting freedom of movement, a football field, running track, swimming pool, indoor sports hall. The high quality sports facilities will allow the school to compete in national tournaments, develop students’ talents and ensure their physical development exceeds the expectations of parents.
The vocational pathway will be further strengthened with the addition of Level 3 BTEC courses that possess strong employer links and will build on the existing Level 2 BTEC courses. The additional space, facilities, and resources will permit Star International to provide a broader and further enriched curriculum, which will let the school accommodate more students in Years 7 to 13 from the local area and better serve their community by meeting their educational needs.
To introduce families to the school’s new Post-16 program, parents are welcome to visit Star International School Al Twar’s main campus for their ‘Post-16 Taster Day’ event. On March 18, 2021, the British curriculum school will welcome parents from 7:30 to 14:30 to speak to faculty and staff about the new program and receive detailed information on what to expect from the institution, as well as how to enroll their children.
Additionally, parents will be able to ask about Star International’s extended commitment to frontliners in the UAE who continue to protect our communities. The school is honoured to recognize the everyday acts of heroism of the country’s frontliners and shows its support by offering special discounts for the new academic year of 2021/2022.
Star International School Al Twar is a family oriented school with faculty and staff working alongside parents and the wider community to offer its children the best opportunities it possibly can. Placing an emphasis on happiness, positivity, and the well-being of its pupils and their academic careers, Star Al Twar looks forward to welcoming students throughout the year.
