The Arbor School
The Arbor School will provide a high standard of education based on the National Curriculum for England, enriched with a compassionate, ethical outlook focused on eco-literacy, sustainability and environmental justice. This educational vision will be embedded within the curriculum of the Arbor School in Al-Furjan and reflected in every lesson and task. Through project-based, experiential and outdoor learning, children will plan, collaborate, reflect and make meaningful changes to the world around them in an inclusive and supportive environment. Arbor will also benefit from both a scientist and artist in residence, who will inspire the whole school community to think and act differently, facilitating their engagement with environmental projects both locally and globally. In support of this vision, the school boasts top-class facilities, using three climate controlled biodomes and learning gardens as key educational spaces to engage children in a deeper understanding of their ecology and environment.
Enough for All, Forever.
