Oaktree Primary School Has A New Principal

There are many factors make a school great – and guess what, most of them are nothing to do with the size of the swimming pool or whether the list of after-school activities is longer than your arm. It’s the people who make a school, both the pupils and the staff too – and in particular the principal (it is he or she who sets the tone for where the school needs to be!).

Oaktree Primary School is making waves amongst the academic community in Dubai because of its excellent teaching staff and truly nurturing, grass-roots approach. With high expectations of its pupils and a challenging, engaging and relevant style of teaching, this school places as much emphasis on great results as on happiness (because one cannot be achieved without the other.)

Leading the helm at Oaktree Primary is new Principal Craig Dyche-Nichols, who has taken the reins from founding Principal Chris McDermott (whose role now is to oversee the entire Athena Education Group to which Oaktree belongs).  In his 19th year of teaching and having previously been a Head Teacher of a Middle School, Mr. Dyche-Nichols  is on the path to taking this relatively new school from strength to strength, building on the foundations set by his predecessor and working together with his team and with parents at the school to make Oaktree mighty.

With small class sizes, additional language courses for native French, Spanish and Russian speaking children within curriculum time, a highly competent staff from the UK and a belief that excellent education should be accessible to all (Oaktree Primary offers flexible fee payments, sibling discounts and more to ensure that individual needs are fully accommodated), this school is definitely one to check-out, mamas.
