Principal’s Message

I would like to thank you for taking a keen interest in learning more about our community. Al Durrah is a young but ambitious school. We have established ourselves as a leading school in Sharjah over the last five years and have great plans to continue to realize our vision becoming a thought leader in progressive education in the region.

As Principal, I am proud to be part of the team that is driving forward this strong innovation, but framed by tradition. It is vital that we support our students to thrive in the fast-changing world through innovative teaching and learning approaches. However, our young people’s biggest assets as they face the challenges of the Fourth Industrial Revolution are their distinctively human attributes – their strong values, their abilities to collaborate and engage in dialogue with one another, their ability to imagine and create! From a very strong family ethos at Al Durrah, this is what we are committed to provide for your children.

After exploring our website, if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us for a further conversation.

We look forward to working with you.

Mr. Tim Logan
