Principal’s Message – A Warm Welcome
– Daspo Yiappos
Welcome to The Oxford School, a part of LEAMS Education. On behalf of our entire team, we are incredibly excited to have you as a member of our educational community.
I am very honoured to have the opportunity to lead the community of Oxford School into the new post pandemic era where we will reconnect with our values of Excellence, Creativity, Collaboration, Respect and Honesty.
I would like to reassure you all that we are united in sharing a common ambition; that our children are safe, happy, challenged and inspired. A very warm welcome, then, to a place where this all happens: The Oxford School, Dubai.
Our family-like ethos is very special and this ensures children learn in a caring environment. With our vision to “empower each individual with creativity and values to become compassionate life-long learners”. Our vision is timeless but rooted in an ambition to ensure every child is the best they can be. It is crucial we help our children learn how to face the challenges the 21st Century will bring. Whilst we are already immensely proud of all of our achievements over the years we are not complacent and we aim to always improve on our previous best performance. Being exceptional in all that we do is undiminished and this drives us forward in our quest to be truly world class. Even a pandemic will not stop us to be the best that we can be.
We are a multi-national family. The Oxford School has over 1400 students covering the 4-18 age range. There are over 50 nationalities represented in our school and this offers a unique opportunity for our children to learn about different cultures and to forge friendships that will last forever. We strive to ensure that our students become enlightened global leaders citizens of the future.
We learn under our core values: Excellence, Creativity, Collaboration, Respect and Honesty. If you think about your best teacher at school, the teacher who inspired you, the chances are that they too shared these values: uncompromising high standards, enthusiasm for their subject, an ability to bring out the best in you and to help you believe you could accomplish anything. This is what we strive to achieve at The Oxford School so that we really do help children to shape our future! We see parents as true partners in learning and ensure that our channels of communication are very strong.
Let’s be inspired and let’s create those special childhood memories that all our children will never forget.
Together we can achieve so much!
