A unique approach to learning that ensures all our children develop into confident and articulate individuals



Developing Successful Students

High Performance Learning is unique to Nord Anglia Education schools. It is an approach to learning that inspires and supports all children to achieve academic and social success that is not constrained by outdated notions of ability.

We build High Performance Learning into everything that we do at the British International School Abu Dhabi. On an individual level, we provide a learning environment that stimulates social and intellectual confidence and opens the doors for success both at school and in their future lives.


Outstanding Teachers

Highly qualified and experienced teachers that inspire and motivate our students to high levels of success



Inspiring Students

Research has demonstrated that the quality of teaching is the most important factor affecting a child's progress. We invest significant time and energy carefully selecting the teachers that join our community.

Once they join, they have the opportunity to be part of Nord Anglia University where they work with the finest teachers around the world to apply the latest developments in education to their teaching practice. 

A Rigorous Curriculum

Combining the best of the English National Curriculum and IB Diploma Programme



A global curriculum

At the British International School Abu Dhabi, we deliver the English National Curriculum from the age of 3-16 and the IB Diploma Programme for 16-18 year old students in their last years of school life.

We do this because we believe that the style and structure of these qualifications along with the depth of subject knowledge taught, prepare students better for both university and working life than any other curriculum available worldwide. 

A Strong Community

Our school is at the centre of the community and we will always help and support you to settle quickly



A Vibrant Community

We pride ourselves on being an open and transparent school. Parents are welcomed into the school on a daily basis.

Whether it is through delivering events such as International Week or the School Fayre or supporting educationally through reading with students or parent evenings, we try to ensure that the school is always a positive environment where parents are welcome to come and support their children in learning.

Our Class Parents are very active in arranging a number of events over the year and we strongly encourage the entire community to get involved.
