Hello and welcome to

Dubai British School Jumeira

a community school nestled in the heart of Al Wasl

Lee Hole

School Principal

As the Founding Principal at Dubai British School Jumeira, I feel extremely privileged and excited, about the community we are building. I have spent almost twenty years in education, teaching and leading across all key stages and across different curricula. I have benefited from the experiences I have had in educational leadership, in the UK, UAE and Cambodia, the last decade being as a Principal. The contextual, cultural and educational learning, that has been possible from working with excellent teachers and educational leaders in outstanding schools, will be invaluable as I serve the DBS Jumeira community.

DBS Jumeira’s aim to empower students to reach for their potential aligns beautifully with my own commitment to the young people that I serve in schools.

I believe that every child has the ability to achieve great things when they find the right school environment and are nurtured to achieve their best.

I look forward to working with students, partnering with families and supporting other educators as we create this environment at DBS Jumeira.

Throughout my career, I have always found the interplay of human connections to be at the core of successful schools. At DBS Jumeira we see the relationships amongst our community as critical to the success of our young people.

The teacher to student relationship is often one that has a lasting impact and is almost always the key to unlocking a child’s true potential.

The partnership between a school and the families in the school community cannot be underestimated and I have always committed time and energy into the building of collaborative, trusting relationships with parent that choose to be part of this community.

One of the most exciting aspects of leading schools is the development of a learning community.

DBS Jumeira is a place in which we embrace the inclusivity and complexities of the modern classroom and use every opportunity to enhance learning for every child in our care.

At Dubai British School Jumeira we believe that every member of our community should ENJOY, ASPIRE and ACHIEVE.
