First and foremost, welcome.

DIA is a school that truly embodies the spirit of internationalism, embracing students from across the globe with open arms. We celebrate diversity and value the unique perspectives and experiences that each student brings to our community.

As educators, we recognise our responsibility to prepare our students to become globally minded individuals. While we cannot predict the exact future they will face, we are dedicated to equipping them with the necessary skills and knowledge to thrive in an ever-changing world. Our focus on mastering various technologies ensures that our students become adaptable and proficient learners, ready to embrace the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

What sets DIA apart is the strong sense of community that permeates our rather large school, making it feel personable and intimate. We prioritise building meaningful relationships with our students, their families, and the wider school community. This creates a nurturing and supportive environment where students can flourish and achieve their full potential.

I invite you to explore our website and discover the multitude of opportunities and enriching experiences that await your child at Dubai International Academy. Whether it's our outstanding academic programs, exceptional sporting achievements, or the holistic approach to student wellbeing, you will find that DIA is a place where your child's education is our utmost priority.

Thank you taking the time to read this. I look forward to meeting you and embarking on a journey of learning, growth, and success together. Warm regards, Tom Collar Head of Primary.

Kind regards,

Tom Collar
The Head of Primary
