Our Secondary Teachers

Forever learning, forever achieving...

The Deira International School (DIS) Secondary teaching team is highly experienced and talented, with outstanding expertise in The National Curriculum for England and International Baccalaureate and the highest educational and ethical standards. The majority of Secondary teachers at DIS come from the United Kingdom and leading British international schools from around the world.

All our Secondary teachers are qualified to degree level, hold a PGCE (Teaching Certificate) and have QTS (Qualified Teacher Status). They also take part in consistent professional development programmes to ensure they remain at the forefront of the latest educational methodology. We are proud of our diverse and high-quality teaching staff who have experience of a range of educational systems, including the International Baccalaureate as well as The National Curriculum for England.

Our Secondary teaching team is ably assisted by an equally committed administrative and support team. Through this we ensure stability and consistency, both vital factors in teacher-pupil relationships and successful learning. The best schools in the world have the best school staff.
