Everyone’s welcome at NAS Abu Dhabi. We’re a fully inclusive school that’s open to students of all backgrounds and nationalities. We also accept applications all year round.

We're currently placing students from Foundation Stage 1 through to Year 8 (ages 3 to 13), and will welcome Year 9 to Year 12 students (ages 14 to 17) in August 2024. 

Enquiry and application

Your personalised journey to NAS Abu Dhabi starts with our admissions team. You can get in touch with them by phone, email, or by completing our online enquiry form.

Once we hear from you, we’ll invite you to meet our leadership team, either in person or virtually. You’ll then need to complete your child’s online application form and send us the following documents:


After receiving your form and documents, we’ll invite your child to an age-appropriate assessment. Although we’re a non-selective school, we want to make sure we can fully meet each student’s learning needs.

Our Foundation Stage children (ages 3 to 5) will join us for an interactive play session. Students starting at primary or secondary level will sit a cognitive abilities test (CAT 4) and/or a reading, writing, and comprehension assessment.

Offering and accepting a place

Once we’ve reviewed your application and assessment, we’ll write to you offering your child a place.


Every family’s application process is different, so we’d encourage you to get in touch with our friendly admissions team to find out how it’ll work for you.
