Welcome to Sunmarke School
A Character-Building & Disruptively Innovative School Transforming Young Lives

Sunmarke provides an ambitious and inspiring values-based education nurturing the hearts and minds of young boys and girls so they can flourish and achieve their dreams.

Powered by our unique Signature Programmes, we are a disruptively innovative school transforming students’ lives.

We are one of the few schools to offer both the IB and A Levels curriculum pathways, as well as the BTECs.

We are amongst the top 10 schools in Dubai academically, as seen by our outstanding IB and A Level results, as well as university placements.

We are a recognised global leader in Positive Education – a paradigm shift in education worldwide – where truly outstanding teaching can only be achieved by developing “academics and personal achievement,” as well as “wellbeing and character.”

Backed by Fortes Education’s rich history of over 40 years, Sunmarke is rated “Outstanding” by the British School Overseas Inspection authority and ”Very Good” by KHDA.
