● Our focus: The education of children; academically and pastorally in the context of high academic standards delivered through the UK National Curriculum (UKNC).
● Development of the whole person is critical with guidance and encouragement of questioning, analysis, team working and good citizenship being central to our operations.
● We are helping build future citizens in a way that challenges the traditional education format.  Instead of a recall-based education format, we foster an environment of collegiality and co-learning. One focusing on the future, supporting the UAE Government's Vision 2021.
● We seek the very highest educational standards for our pupils delivered through a proven curriculum (the UKNC) as well as through opportunities presented by STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Maths) projects such as robotics, the arts and sports. 
● Competing is a key aspect with our sporting focus being on Swimming for the short term with cricket, netball, basketball and football being developed in the medium term.
● Drama, Debating and The Arts are three other medium term goals that we as a school embrace and are laying pathways to achieve excellence within. Ultimately, competing at a high level in the WSC (World Scholar's Cup) is a clear goal as is recognition at the annual WRO (World Robot Olympiad) Association . 
● Teachers are internationally qualified, regionally experienced and drawn from across the globe hailing from England, Ireland, Scotland, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Canada, Philippines, Palestine, Egypt and Jordan.
● We are a school that offers a personal service for all our stakeholders: Knowing our children, involving our families and offering a bespoke support service to all of our learners is key to what we do.
● As we develop, we will be seeking membership of organisations that enable us to develop and grow our excellence and demonstrate our credentials and quality in terms of what we offer.  These include: British Schools Overseas certification, COBIS (Council of British International Schools) membership and membership of ISTA (International Schools Theatre Association) and BSME (British Schools in the Middle East).
● We are firmly and respectfully rooted in the UAE as our host nation and through our PACE parent organisation.  These aspects of our community are ones which we are both proud and honored to be part of. In the same way that our host nation supports us, we strongly support the UAE and its Vision 2021 by offering the very best educational experience to all our learners regardless of background, ability or aspiration at a sustainably competitive price.
 
Mr. Keith Marsh, Chief Academic Officer, PACE Group
 
A good education is constructive in nature and promotes the feeling of physical, mental and social wellbeing. It helps the students to improve their status of mind, body and spirit. It provides us with confidence by giving us knowledge in many subject areas.
We know from years of experience that children learn at their own pace, but sometimes the traditional classroom makes it difficult to do so. With the integration of technology in education, children have the ability to slow down and go back over lessons and concepts, and more advanced students can move ahead. It also frees up the teacher to help children on a more one-on-one level.
 
Having access to other information outside of the traditional textbook gives students many different ways to learn a concept. Teachers can come up with creative ways to teach their students and keep them engaged. Technology has changed the learning environment so that learning is more hands-on. Schools throughout the emirates are diverse in income, and often children don't always get the resources they need. The implementation of technology in schools helps close that gap.
 
Technology helps make teaching and learning more meaningful and fun. 
 
At PACE Group, it is our goal to provide the best education for all children, irrespective of ability that we can.
 
Here at PACE British School, we will be incorporating all the above values into school life. Through a commitment to engage teachers of the highest quality and provide them with a comprehensive Professional Development Programme, we will work with parents and the wider community to fulfill these goals.
