Welcome to Nord Anglia International School Manila!

Nord Anglia International School Manila is an inclusive school with a family feel. We believe that when the wellbeing of children is put first, we are able to create a safe and purposeful environment in which all children can reach their full potential.

As a parent, I appreciate that choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will have to make. Through personalised, enjoyable, and engaging learning experiences, delivered by world-class teachers, pupils acquire the skills and knowledge set out in the English National Curriculum and also develop as individuals through a broad and balanced curriculum. This ensures that our children achieve IGCSE and A-Level results that are consistently higher than the world average, which enables them to move on to top international universities.

As part of the Nord Anglia Education global family of schools, we are the only school in the Philippines that collaborate with The Juilliard School, which offers fantastic performing arts opportunities for all our students, and with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) which prepares students for our rapidly changing world - through our hands-on learning of STEAM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Maths) children develop the skills needed to invent the future, they will ultimately inherit.

All of our classroom teachers are UK-qualified and receive up-to-date training to ensure standards are always high. State-of-the-art technologies are integrated into our curriculum and classrooms to ensure pupils are prepared for the future, and a range of rich academic resources complement our fabulous campus. All of this guarantees that every child in our care receives the best possible education.

As well as academic progress, your child will develop into a responsible global citizen guided by our school’s principles of honesty, integrity, tolerance, and respect for others. This is heightened at NAIS Manila through our Nord Anglia Education global family of schools.

At Nord Anglia International School Manila pupils are encouraged to be inquisitive and to play a part in their own development, as well as being challenged and given the opportunity to discover their abilities. We work hard to create an environment where children enjoy learning, feel safe and are confident to make mistakes, and develop a growth mindset that results in excellent academic outcomes in both Primary and Secondary.  It is our firm ambition to ensure pupils who complete their education with us are not only exceptionally prepared for the next stage of their education but also possess the ‘soft skills’ and character to succeed in life.

Wherever you and your family are in the world, you can remain connected and gain access to our personalised education through our Virtual School Experience (VSE). Our approach to VSE means students can learn from their teachers ‘live’ and independently. Striking the right balance between on and offline learning allows your child to make the most of personalised learning from home. Our virtual school has been designed to meet every student’s social, emotional, creative, physical, and cultural needs.

I encourage you to visit our campus, either virtually or in person. I will be extremely pleased to welcome you and look forward to sharing the achievements of our school and children, which we are all so very proud of. I know that you will sense the unique atmosphere here and will want your child to become a part of it.
