Sherborne House School (SHS) Dubai UAE information, fees, teaching jobs and vacancies

Do not apply for any jobs at SHS Dubai found online (or offline) without confirming directly with SHS UK, or any other authoritative source that there really are jobs available. As of 2019 there aren't since SHS has no plans to operate a school in the UAE, at least, no public plans that we know of. Many Dubai school names are used for fake or scam jobs, either real schools, speculated or planned schools, or school names which sound plausible but are not real.

Sherborne School (UK) is one of the schools attending the Dubai edition of the British Boarding Schools Show, from 13-14 March 2020 (Fri-Sat). Looks like only the boys school is attending, not the girls school. It is the first time for Sherborne School to make an appearance at the Dubai show?

The show is for UK boarding schools to recruit prospective students from the region around Dubai and the UAE, not for British schools planning to set up a branch in the UAE.

[Rumour only?] 27 March 2019

Sherborne School Dubai (not Sherbourne). No information found confirming any plan or proposal, only a comment speculating that Sherborne School in the UK (in Sherborne, Dorset) might open a branch in Dubai or the UAE. Speculation appears to have arisen because a Sherbone School opened in Doha, Qatar in Sep 2009. There is also an empty unofficial Facebook page for Sherborne Dubai, so perhaps because it's on FB it must be true (we don't think so).

Note that Sherborne School in Dorset is not related to Sherborne House School in Eastleigh, Hampshire, UK.

As it happens, Sherborne House School does have a Dubai UAE connection, it is or was or is again part of the GEMS Education group, founded by Sunny Varkey. The timeline seems to be Sherborne School was a GEMS school, then became a Bellevue Education school in Oct 2016, then sort of ended up in the GEMS group again in 2018 when GEMS obtained a controlling stake in Bellevue Education.
