Parent Feedback

22 June 2015

I have some very pleasing news to share this week. Which School Advisor has recently published the results of its parent survey and The British International School Abu Dhabi has come joint first in the whole of the UAE for the Most Recommended Schools.

We are very proud of the development of the school in quite a short space of time and particularly so of the wonderful relationships that exist within our whole community. We know that these relationships have a real impact on the children in helping them succeed at school and in helping them develop as caring people who can make a difference to their world in the future.

I would like to say a huge thank you to all parents who voted for their public acknowledgment of the achievements here at BIS Abu Dhbai. I would also like to recognise the fantastic efforts of the students, and of course to the staff for everything they give to support the students every day.

In addition to the accolade from Which School Advisor, we have recently received results from the Annual Parents Survey. I will write separately to share these results in more detail, but for now can I offer my thanks to all who completed this survey, both for your positive feedback and for your constructive suggestions. The approval from parents has increased in nearly every category compared to 2014 and once again we are thankful for your support which helps us to continually try and improve.

Despite the recognition for our school I can assure you there is no resting on laurels! We will continue to work to enhance each aspect of school life as we believe there is plenty more we can do to make our school even better. I look forward to working closely with parents in the new academic year to build further on everything that has been achieved so far and take BIS Abu Dhabi to even greater heights.
