Sia Principal Signature


Dear Parents,

As the Principal of Scholars International Academy (SIA), I am delighted to welcome you to our beloved community school that stands at the forefront of educational excellence in Sharjah. A school that has an unwavering commitment to creating an empathetic, nurturing and happy learning ‘eco system’.

At SIA, we pride ourselves on offering a curriculum anchored in the British National Curriculum, while also being esteemed members of the BSME (British Schools in the Middle East), the BSO (British School Overseas) as well as an award-winning High-Performance Learning (HPL) school that sets the standard for HPL schools globally. Our ethos revolves around community engagement and placing learners at the core of all our endeavours.

Since our inception in 2007, SIA has evolved into a thriving all through school catering to learners from FS1 to Year 13. Our purpose is ambitious yet straightforward: to empower learners to become architects of their own futures, equipped with robust values and the enterprising skills essential for navigating life’s challenges.

In today’s rapidly evolving world, we understand the significance of preparing learners for an uncertain future. Hence, embedding the High-Performance Learning framework and philosophy across our school is something we feel is paramount. By focusing on cultivating Advanced Cognitive Skills and fostering the right values and the right mindset for learning we are dedicated to supporting each learner in their journey towards both academic excellence and personal growth – Life ready!

Our commitment to academic performance is evident in the remarkable progress and achievements of our learners. We take immense pride in nurturing well-rounded individuals who not only excel academically but also embody the ethos of our school community.

I invite you to visit Scholars International Academy and witness firsthand the vibrant and nurturing learning ‘eco system’ we have cultivated. It is an opportunity to experience the warmth and positivity that permeates every aspect of SIA.

Warm Regards,
