A whole world of curiosity, excitement, adventure and imagination

Being part of the Nord Anglia family
With 81 schools in 32 countries around the world, a wide variety of exciting benefits support and excel students’ growth and learning, helping them achieve more than they ever imagined.

The group’s success comes from a combination of its reputation attracting the world’s best teachers, a full suite of outstanding educational experiences, and a personalised approach to learning based on the strengths, passions and challenges of every individual student. Each Nord Anglia school around the world carries these same trademarks, and from August 2023 on Al Reem Island, Nord Anglia International School Abu Dhabi (NAS Abu Dhabi) will be the same.

Ambitious thinkers, pioneers, and leading educational experts are all part of Nord Anglia's genetic makeup, including those from exclusive collaborations with world-leading organisations, including MIT, The Julliard School, and UNICEF. What sets the Nord Anglia family apart from independent schools is its pool of resources that provide life-changing opportunities for students, all while being at the forefront of the best teaching practices from global collaboration.

“The Nord Anglia school environment is fun and enjoyable for students. It’s a safe place for children to be excited about going to school, to develop a lifetime love for learning. Part of the NAS Abu Dhabi community will be the wider Nord Anglia family, and the support and key benefits for our families and students that comes from being part of a global group,” said NAS Abu Dhabi principal, Jonathan Cuff.

There are enormous benefits for educators and staff, through professional development opportunities and international collaborations, as well as each child, with connections to classmates across countries via Global Campus, as well as school expeditions to Tanzania and Switzerland.

“Our state-of-the-art campus facilities will bring our students’ learning to life in a really exciting way. And thanks to being part of the Nord Anglia family, they’ll also be connected to world-class institutes and embarking on life-changing adventures that will create the best possible educational experience,” said Jonathan.

Established for 50 years, Nord Anglia continues to provide a breadth of knowledge and understanding in the world of education, equipping its schools with everything children need to achieve success.

“Our community will reflect the exceptional teaching only available at Nord Anglia schools. We welcome ambitious thinkers and creative minds, those with an insatiable curiosity and an excitement for life’s possibilities, irrespective of ability,” said Jonathan.
