Aine Knapton


School Counsellor

Aine has worked with young people for over thirty years supporting their social and emotional well-being in a range of educational establishments including schools in Ireland, Scotland and overseas.  


Before joining The British International School of Abu Dhabi, I worked in two excellent International IB Schools in Egypt and Oman and during this time she set up the School Counselling Service.

I was born in Ireland but moved to Scotland 27 years ago with my husband’s work when we married. As a family we moved to Egypt in 2004 (this became a reoccurring theme) and both our daughters had the opportunity to experience international education. They have now graduated and are back in Scotland pursuing their own careers in Law and Nursing. We are looking forward to both of them visiting us in our new home.

I enjoy travel, reading, spending time with family and friends and walking our lovely Cocker spaniel. I look forward to meeting both students and parents during the year.
