Sina House

Head of House
As well as being a part of the Jumeirah College community, each student is a member of one of our four Houses: Fihri, Majid, Gibran and Sina. There are two equal halves to the cohort, each with a form group for each House.
The House Captains are Year 13 students by appointment, following a rigorous selection process. In each year group there are also House Representatives who work with the House Captains to coordinate whole College events as well as their own year group specific events. Each house has a staff leader called the Head of House, who is responsible for the organisation and programme of events across the academic year.


In addition to Year and Whole College assemblies, regular house assemblies take place each term coordinated by the student leaders.

Meet your new Head of Sina House, Ms Southam.



Hello and welcome to the wolf pack. We are Sina, the red house who is ‘always ready’ for any challenges that come our way. We are named after the legend, Ibn Sina was the most famous of the philosopher-scientists of Islam. He was also a poet, an Islamic scholar and theologian and he wrote the 'Canon of Medicine', which is among the most famous books in the history of medicine.

Ibn Sina made many contributions to a wide variety of areas and we hope that you can follow in his footsteps and do the same for Sina House. With the mighty wolf being our mascot we believe that it takes every individual’s contributions, however big or small, to pull together to make the strongest of packs.

As the saying goes “for the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack”, so we can not wait for you to bring you drive and enthusiasm to our house next year. Leading our pack from the top you will find Miss Southam, Head of Sina and also a PE teacher here at the college, she supports our two House Captains Caitlin and Jenna, who you will be sure to meet when you arrive at the College.

Whatever your interests or passions there is always an opportunity for you to thrive in our house system and we can’t wait for you to showcase your talents. So come join the pack and be part of Super Sina.
