Wesgreen International School was founded in 1991 in Sharjah, and in the years since it has grown to become one of the most successful schools in the area. The School has been advancing excellence in education for more than two decades and has been recognized by the Council of International Schools as an accredited school.
The School is divided into four separate sections. The Early Years Campus accommodates students from FS1 and Year1. Primary School is comprised of Year 2 to 6 with Year 7 - 13 Boys and Girls based in the segregated Secondary Campuses. At the end of Year 5, students move to either the Boys’ or Girls’ Secondary School. The Boys' and Girls' Secondary Schools cater for Year 7 to Year 13. The Administration Department is housed on the Secondary Boys’ Campus.
At Wesgreen, we aim to provide our students with a first-class education and the best teaching and learning environment in which we aim to ensure that each student achieves their optimum potential academically, physically, emotionally and socially. We work closely with our parent community to develop students who have all the necessary tools to be successful global citizens. Our curriculum offers our students an opportunity to develop into inquiring, knowledgeable and caring citizens who can play their part in the creation of a better and more peaceful world.
From FS2 to Year 1, our students benefit from an international curriculum based upon a combination of The Early Years Foundation Stages, the British National Curricula and the beginnings of the Cambridge Primary Programme. Year 2 to 6 follows the Cambridge Primary Programme. The Cambridge Primary Programme prepares students for a smooth transition to Cambridge Secondary 1 (Year 7 to 9). From Year 10 to 13 our students follow the CIE syllabus for the Cambridge IGCSE, AS and A level examinations.
Cambridge International A Level is the world's most popular international examination for 16-18-year-olds. As one of the most recognized qualifications around the world, it is accepted as proof of academic ability for entry to universities worldwide. At Wesgreen, students are admitted to AS Level in Year12. A variety of subjects is offered including Art and Design, Applied ICT, Mathematics, English Language/ Literature, three Sciences, three Business subjects and four Humanities for the desired combination.
As an international school, Wesgreen recruits and retains highly qualified and dedicated staff whilst providing opportunities to foster their professional and personal development. Currently, we have staff from over 37 nationalities. The School promotes strong interpersonal relationships among administrators, staff, students and parents, creating a positive and supportive environment.
We believe in giving the best to our students. The school has excellent, modern facilities which include six state-of-the-art computer labs, while the highly sophisticated and fully equipped Science Labs provide an open environment for students to experiment and do research work. Under the professional guidance and assistance given by our Secondary school science teachers, students are also encouraged to exhibit their work by developing samples and models.
Each school has a fully resourced library with multimedia sections as well as extra reading rooms. Our e-Library in the Secondary schools allows students to use curriculum-related digital media under professional guidance. The Multimedia Halls in the Secondary schools provide an opportunity to conduct student debates, performances and presentations. All campuses have well-equipped Art Rooms with top quality resources to allow students of all age groups to express their ideas creatively and independently. There are well-equipped gymnasiums on all four campuses together with large fields for football and cricket, multipurpose courts for volleyball and tennis, and a swimming pool in the Primary Section. The enthusiasm for sports of each and everyone can be seen permeating through the school and is evident during matches that are held at famous venues. We also conduct internal tournaments and participate in many other external tournaments. Swimming, scuba diving and horse-riding courses are also offered as extracurricular activities to give the students a wonderful time learning different kinds of sports.
Wesgreen is geared towards excellence with its Vision "To be the UAE's premier school of choice, by inspiring our students to reach their potential, academically, socially, physically and morally". The school assures commitment to promoting internationalism, as well as dedication to excellence in all aspects of providing student-centred education.
