I am delighted to welcome you to Smart Vision School, where our mission ‘Excite Engage Empower’ drives our personalized, inquiry-based approach and our commitment to instill a love and ownership of learning in our pupils; guiding all to meet their true potential.

Smart Vision School, located in Barsha 2, opened as a Primary School in 2016. Our purpose-built facility caters to every need of our students and includes a multi-purpose hall, cafeteria, swimming pool, library, amphitheater, football pitch, tennis and basketball course and dedicated fully equipped playgrounds for Foundation, Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. We currently cater to students from Foundation Stage One to Year Six.

I am fortunate to have spent the majority of my working career internationally, in leading British and International Baccalaureate schools and highly value the importance of international mindedness. What drew me to Smart Vision School is the obvious and immediate feel of an inclusive, family school. We are, first and foremost a community of belonging, where identity is core, diversity is celebrated. Our small class sizes ensure a personalized educational experience for all students.

Smart Vision School curriculum upholds the rigorous standards of the National Curriculum for England, whilst encompassing and celebrating the uniqueness of our host nation and culture. Staff have been carefully selected to provide a standard of learning second to none.

Teaching and learning at Smart Vision embraces the best practices from leading educational frameworks to a provide world-class education. Inquiry methodologies feed the natural curiosity of our students and facilitate their discovery of understanding. Learning is linked to local and global issues to provide students with opportunities to effect positive change in the world. True depth of learning is achieved through relevance, purpose and impact. Skills are integral too, to our commitment to equip our students for future-readiness.

We value values at Smart Vision. Principles are central to the development of the whole child. Our four core values of Integrity, Tolerance, Empathy and Conviction drive who we are and all we do and self-reflection is common-place as we model and promote reflective learning.

At Smart Vision School, parents are partners and communication is key. Digital platforms avail our parents to comprehensive and customised information about every aspect of school life and provide a deep understanding of their children’s learning.

I very much look forward to welcoming all to visit our beautiful facility and meeting you personally.
