 Heather Mann - Founding Principal

Education is my life-long passion and I feel privileged to be the founding Principal of Taaleem’s Dubai British School Jumeirah Park (DBSJP).

The school is unique in many ways; it has been designed to the highest specifications with the 21st century learning needs of students in mind. The facilities are second to none and include a state-of-the-art performing arts theatre; radio station; large, light and airy classrooms; a competition 8-lane swimming pool with training pool; shaded outdoor learning spaces; a food technology room and a family-style dining facilities with a professional-standard kitchen.

The quality of the building and facilities are matched by the quality and experience of the staff, all appointed to support the school’s vision of providing outstanding education from Year 1 to Year 13 (Year 1 to Year 8 2016/17 and for Academic Year 2017/18 - Year 1 to Year 9 and further secondary classes will be added from 2019).

Throughout my career I have experience of setting up and leading new schools in the United Arab Emirates, taking them from inauguration through to achieving high performing school status. My career began in Scotland, and has covered leadership positions in Early Years, Primary and Secondary phases of education with The English National Curriculum and the American Curriculum.

At DBSJP you receive a warm welcome and personal approach from your initial enquiry with our Admissions Team through to daily contact with teachers and other team members.

Our multi-cultural environment offers an exceptional combination of the best of a well-rounded British education delivered within a truly international community, enriched by a variety of cultures that characterize our increasingly connected world.

In the pursuit of the highest academic standards, we provide a caring and supportive atmosphere, which allows children to thrive academically, socially and emotionally with each individual talent being nurtured and celebrated.

I hope you enjoy browsing our website full of information and for an insight into our vibrant, creative and dynamic learning community.
