  • The story of a remarkable international school and the staff and students who have made it the centre of excellence that it is today
  • Dubai College has a database of more than 4,000 highly active alumni, as well as over 800 current students


When Dubai College was founded 40 years ago, Dubai was not yet the phenomenon we know today, and camels roamed around the grounds of the school. This book tells the story of a remarkable place filled with remarkable people. With staff and students from across the world, this most colourful of schools excels in each of the areas it calls its Four Pillars: Academic, Creative, Philanthropic and Sport. This excellence is displayed in the recollections of over 70 students, teachers and headmasters, as well as in the beautiful photography from all four decades – a fitting tribute to an international school.
