Work at SES


We are delighted that you may be thinking of joining our community here at Sharjah English School.

You may find the following information useful. Our school was established in 1974 making it one of the oldest British curriculum schools in the UAE.  Our excellent reputation as an employer of choice is built upon many years of positive feedback from staff who have moved on to pastures new and of course those who are still enjoying their time here.

Everyone at SES, teachers and staff alike, are incredibly friendly and supportive. There is a constant sense of positivity and a drive towards excellence, which makes coming to work a pleasure. The students are well-behaved and the parent community enthusiastic, which makes being part of their educational journey incredibly rewarding.
Sana El Rifae

Director of Marketing, Admissions and Alumni

We are a 3-18 school designed around a 3 form entry intake with small classes and a wonderful community feel. Our campus is currently arranged around 5 main buildings amongst beautiful surroundings with extensive space and greenery.

Classes are small and the facilities are of a high quality. We continue to refurbish and renew on an ongoing basis and are determined that we keep pace with up to date pedagogy. We are an Apple school in terms of staff and student devices and use various digital platforms for delivery - google classroom, tapestry, AI applications etc.

Our ‘family feel’, very well behaved students and supportive parents as well as a competitive salary and benefits structure supports well-being both at work and beyond.

Both academic and administrative staff should be positive about education for children and inspire and enthuse in equal measure. We will support all staff with appropriate and regular CPD opportunities but expect high standards in return. Alongside the excellent quality of life here in the UAE, Sharjah English School staff tend to stay for many years - it is a difficult place to leave behind.

Once appointed to a position at our school academic staff will be given access to a website page with much more information.
