Industry-ready Skills and Aptitudes
Regent probably has one of the leading digital and computing departments amongst schools in the UAE. A state-of-the-art ‘Applied Innovations Department’ led by by Mr. Troy Ellison, an inspirational Regent teacher and thought leader in digital education, provides students with industry-ready and real-world digital skills. The enriched Regent computing curriculum ignites curiosity, nurtures creativity and develops grit – all critical to flourish in the workplace and life.
Our students use high-quality technology resources to personalise learning and access the latest software programmes. Students become power users of Microsoft OneNote, Teams, Office 365 and SharePoint, as well a range of apps strengthening the effectiveness in their learning.
Regent’s Computer Science curriculum deepens student’s knowledge on topics such as robotics, artificial intelligence, graphics, media, web development, Raspberry Pi computers, codeable electronics, and Python programming, preparing them for the GCSEs and A-levels and Computer Science as a career, and enabling them to become fluent technologists given that technology is critical in so many of today’s careers.
Students can also opt to join the “XTeam Elite” where they are called upon to innovate, invent and create using STEAM and design thinking processes solutions to real-life problems. Through this intense and highly enjoyable experience, they learn industry prototyping, and workplace teamwork and leadership skills.
By the end of Key Stage 3 (Year 7 to 9), students are securely grounded with industry-ready skills and aptitudes and are ready to transition into Year 10.

All through school, our students are given multiple opportunities to participate in a variety of coding competitions, hackathons, STEAMathalons and others events.

Very strong Curriculum with rich learning opportunities
that has an impact on the child's progress.
We learn to sing and to use our voices, to create and compose music.
We even have the opportunity to learn how to play different musical instruments. Our music teachers are very talented. They even taught some of us how to floss.
With an amazing senior leadership team and experienced educators,
a Regent education is interactive and collaborative – they truly make primary school a memorable experience.
My school feels like home.
I love coming to school every day.
Possibilities seem infinite at Regent.
There are no limits in my child’s imagination about what he can do. Children are encouraged to take chances, try anything and not be afraid.
The strong sense of community makes Regent more than just a great place for study,
it’s a great place to socialise and make new friends.
Regent has given my daughter a new start.
This school has encouraged her to gain confidence and to express herself despite mistakes. The teachers are always available to help and laugh with her.
