Deira International School IGCSE Results 2019

The students of Deira International School Festival City have achieved great results, a testament to their commitment and hard work and to the support from DIS staff.

Mrs Burke Director explains that ‘the increase of 17% of students achieving the highest grades, including Naz Karadede – 9A* and 1A, Krishna Mashruwala – 9A* and 1AS and Nil Karadede – 8A* and 1A, has come about through a relentless focus on outstanding pastoral support and ambitious goal- setting.

“As a highly inclusive school, we are particularly delighted and proud of the extra value added to each student; strong relationships and support systems will continue to be key focus areas; attainment outcomes at DIS will continue to rise in the years ahead”, according to Mrs Wendy Feherty, newly appointed Head of Secondary at DIS (recently relocated from Dulwich College Beijing).
