At FirstPoint USA, we are delighted to announce our new partnership with the Dubai English Speaking College (DESC), as their Official USA University Scholarship Partner. This partnership will give DESC the chance to provide remarkable opportunities for their student-athletes at elite American colleges and universities.
Dubai English Speaking College is part of the oldest British school in Dubai; Dubai English Speaking School (DESS). The secondary school was established in 2005 to meet the needs of DESS parents, and their children requiring continuing British education up to Year 13. Under Founding Headteacher, Peter Daly, DESC opened with just 35 Year & students and has gradually grown since; now thriving with over 1200 students in Years 7 to 13.
“Enjoyment, Pride, Respect,” DESC is one of the leading international schools for sport and prides itself on delivering a high quality and enjoyable experience for every student, from international to recreational standard, in our world class facilities. Approximately 75% of DESC students choose to take part in sporting clubs outside of the classroom.
The College has a well deserved reputation for competitive sport and participates in a huge number of fixtures each year, with over 100 teams across a range of sports. The major sports at DESC are rugby, netball, soccer and swimming – each of which are supported by Specialist Directors and a specific development programme.
With regards to our recent partnership, FirstPoint USA's Head of Operations, John Paul Boyle, stated: "We are delighted to announce our new partnership with Dubai English Speaking College. The college boast amazing facilities on campus for both soccer and rugby which has helped them produce some of the top student athletes in the UAE. We are looking forward to providing a pathway to the US for their students."
