In her four years in Abu Dhabi, Lesley-Ann was responsible for growing the school from 540 to 1500 students and leading the school through various school inspections ensuring the school was successful in its application to be an IB world school. Lesley-Ann is passionate about international education and broadening student horizons. She truly believes in Nord Anglia’s educational philosophy of “Be Ambitious” and ensures that students strive to reach their full potential academically, socially and personally.

These traits are at the heart of our collaboration with Juilliard.
