For August/ September 2020

The Arbor School provides a high standard of education based on the National Curriculum for England enriched with a compassionate, ethical outlook focused on ecoliteracy, sustainability and environmental justice. This educational vision is embedded within the curriculum of the Arbor School and reflected in every lesson and task.

Through project-based, experiential and outdoor learning, children plan, collaborate, reflect and make meaningful changes to the world around them in an inclusive and supportive environment.

Due to the success of The Arbor School in Dubai, and firm plans to expand the Arbor group of schools, a new school will be opening in Abu Dhabi in 2021 for which an experienced Founding Head of Primary will be required. The successful applicant will join the group in August/ September 2020 giving them time to be fully involved in the set up of the whole school. This is an exceptional opportunity to join a truly inspirational group and further details will be advised shortly.

Applications are welcomed from leaders who have a minimum of three cumulative years in educational leadership in a British curriculum school and an advanced (post-graduate) university degree/ diploma/ qualification in educational matters.
