learning in new and extraordinary ways

At NAS Abu Dhabi, we offer a breadth of transformational opportunities that nurture the next generation of thinkers, creators, and global changemakers.

In purpose-built learning environments designed for the future, your child will immerse themselves in exclusive collaborations with UNICEF, The Juilliard School, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) – and explore different cultures on our innovative World Languages Programme.

Our students take part in residential trips, enriching after-school activities, and awe-inspiring local and international service projects, too. Through hands-on experiences beyond the classroom, your child will grow in confidence, develop a host of transferable skills, and become a principled global citizen.

Sport is for everyone at NAS Abu Dhabi. In some of the finest facilities in the Middle East – which include an Olympic-sized swimming pool, cardio centre, and FIFA-approved Astroturf pitch – your child will get moving, sharpen their skills, and compete against friends and other schools.
We’re proud to be a truly international school, where students feel comfortable and confident immersing themselves in new languages, cultures, and experiences. On our pioneering World Languages Programme, your child can learn Arabic, Mandarin, Spanish, German, and French, enhancing their cognitive development, broadening horizons, and preparing them for success in our globalised world.
Inspiring curiosity through challenge, our science, technology, engineering, arts, and maths (STEAM) programme is an innovative way to learn. At clubs, activities, and Nord Anglia festivals, your child will tackle hands-on challenges set by MIT professors, harness the power of interactive technology, and learn the skills they need to succeed in the 21st century.

extraordinary trips and expeditions

Your child will experience the world at NAS Abu Dhabi, delving into different cultures and making a real difference on life-changing adventures here and overseas.
Our citizenship trip to Arusha, Tanzania is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Your child will learn about global responsibility and sustainability, and the important role we play in looking after our planet. Working with locals on a variety of projects, our students develop a sense of independence, increase their understanding of the world, and realise the importance of community.

Our personal challenge expedition in Les Martinets, Switzerland, encourages our students to take risks and push themselves out of their comfort zone. Set in the beautiful Swiss Alps, students hike through the mountains and take on a series of challenges. They also learn important skills – like cooking and working together under pressure – while creating treasured memories that will stay with them forever.

Local trips
Our location on Al Reem Island is the perfect base to enjoy all manner of exciting activities. Cultural trips across the region instil a sense of pride in our Emirati students and inspire wonder and curiosity among those joining us from overseas. Sporting, service, and outdoor activities add to the breadth of off-campus opportunities on offer.


We know that students who are happy, healthy, and included will flourish, which is why your child’s wellbeing is our absolute priority. Our dedicated pastoral team provide the care and practical help each student needs to achieve academic success, create memorable moments, and bounce back from challenging times.

Your child will love coming to our campus every day, too, which has been purposely designed to nurture their all-round growth. Innovative, inter-connected spaces actively promote socialising, purposeful collaboration, and a strong sense of community, while bright, open classrooms and outstanding facilities provide a real source of inspiration.

We believe that a strong partnership with you, our parents, is also incredibly important. Our teachers know exactly how, when, and what communication you’ll need, ensuring you’re constantly connected to your child’s progress and growth.



Education has the power to change the world, which is why we help our students develop the creativity and resilience they need to make a genuine impact.

Globally, our students drive change through our collaboration with UNICEF. Your child will learn about pressing international issues – like the UN Global Goals and Rights of the Child – and research, debate, and present solutions. They’ll also take part in life-affirming social, outreach, and themed challenges on our Global Campus digital platform, working alongside Nord Anglia students in 32 countries worldwide.

We also encourage our students to take part in local outreach activities as part of Nord Anglia’s Share A Dream programme. This provides unique opportunities to raise money and volunteer for the causes and organisations they truly care about.



Located in the heart of Abu Dhabi, our brand new campus on Al Reem Island is a learning environment designed with your child’s future in mind.
