School house System

Our house system at NAS Dubai has a very collegiate feel and allows opportunities for students to collaborate with their peers in different year groups; supporting each other both socially and academically. It can also provide students and teachers with a sense of identity and belonging. Through this system we can cultivate achievement through celebrating success, offering opportunities for all, injecting a sense of positivity and striving for excellence in all areas of school life.

Upon joining NAS Dubai, each student is allocated a house. Each house symbol represents an animal that is native to the United Arab Emirates:

  • Falcons
  • Leopards
  • Scorpions
  • Vipers

We encourage students to play an active role in the success of their house. Individual and team efforts are rewarded, and students are expected to contribute to Inter-house competitions throughout the year.

Heads of House for 2019/2020

  • Head of Falcons - Miss Emma Lea
  • Head of Leopards - Miss Morgan Gladden
  • Head of Scorpions - Mr Tony Williams
  • Head of Vipers – Mr Peter Comben


House Captains

The annual appointment of house captains, who assist in the organisation and leadership of their house, is a key event at the start of the school year and the house captains learn key leadership skills that will equip them for well for their future.
