Jumeirah English Speaking School Arabian Ranches – Primary– Are incredibly popular schools, and difficult to get your child into. The school has waiting lists, and many year groups are closed. New schools have opened around the Arabian Ranches area which has alleviated some pressure on places.

As a not for profit school, to fund its expansion, all children are required to pay to the school a personal debenture (an interest free loan you make available to the school) over and above school fees. There are two types of debentures available: Corporate and Personal. Corporate Debentures were sold to companies who chose to support JESS on a long term basis by investing in the initial building of the schools. In return for this commitment their employees, (if eligible), gain priority on the waiting lists and the option to apply to JESS even if the waiting list is closed.

Personal debenture applications can be accepted only if the waiting list for their eligible year group is open or for younger siblings entering Foundation One only. A personal debenture requires parents to pay 20,000 AED, but only after a place is offered. This is fully refundable when the child leaves the school. See Admissions – Debentures for more information about the debenture scheme.

In an XPress report, R.D. Stokoe, the former Director of the school admitted “lists are significant (2,000-plus) with high levels of interest across the 3-18 age phases. We have closed a number of these waiting lists due to over-subscription.”

As of 2015-2016, the school received the Knowledge and Human Development Authority inspection rating of Outstanding – the fifth year in a row, after two years of a Good rating by the KHDA. The original JESS in Jumeirah is also ranked Outstanding.

The curriculum followed by the school is initially UK based with students up to the end of Key Stage 4 following the National Curriculum of England and Wales, and subsequently the increasingly sought after International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) in Years 12 and 13.

There are a number of routes to follow in the IB portfolio including a new IBCC in Sport course, which launched in September 2013, for students interested in a career in the sports industry.

The quality of teaching at JESS is highly praised by the KHDA, who rank it Outstanding.
