The Spear’s Schools Index, the only global ranking of top private schools, has named five UAE schools among the top 100 private schools in the world.

Brighton College Abu Dhabi, Cranleigh Abu Dhabi, Dubai College, Jumeirah English Speaking School and Repton School Dubai were among the top 10 schools in the Middle East included in the index of the best private schools.

All the schools were expertly chosen by Carfax Education and Spear’s, the award-winning magazine for high-net-worth individuals.

Categorised by region, prospective parents and pupils can now access a list of the top 100 schools for 2021, across the UK, Switzerland, Europe, USA, Middle East, China, Southeast Asia and the rest of the world, chosen by expert education consultants at Carfax Education and Spear’s.


As well as formal criteria such as academic results and preparation for university entry, schools are ranked on their unique ethos, their reputation both locally and internationally, and how adequately they prepare students for life beyond academia.

The guide provides a comprehensive overview of curriculum and fees as well as practical information such as travel times to local airports.

Top schools listed for 2021 providing exceptional education for students include well-renowned British schools such as Rugby School and Wellington College, as well as those further afield, such as St George’s College in Argentina and The Scots College in Australia.

New entries for this year include Brighton College, Amadeus School, Vienna and YK Pao School, China. Collated by Carfax Education experts on the ground across the world, the index is the most comprehensive global list available.
