The British International School Abu Dhabi would like to invite families interested in joining the school to our Foundation Stage (FS) Open Day. Held on Monday 15th January at 8am, it will be a fantastic opportunity to find out more about our Early Years offering, tour our dedicated FS facilities, and have your questions answered by our Early Years practitioners.

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

Our teaching is based on the 2012 English National Foundation Stage curriculum and is delivered through a multi-sensory, play-based approach. Our students sing, dance, go on trips, prepare delicious and healthy food, swim, experiment, paint, read, use construction toys and generally have a wonderful time.

We maximise our wonderful Foundation Stage playgrounds which act as an extension of the classroom to expand the range of activities students may access on a daily basis.

Early Years Entry Requirements

We follow the UK entry system, whereby to enter Foundation Stage 1, a child needs to be 3 years old on or before the 31st August of the joining year. To enter Foundation Stage 2, a child needs to be 4 years old on or before the 31st August of the joining year.

Part of the Nord Anglia Education Global Campus

The British International School Abu Dhabi school is a vibrant, exciting learning community offering an outstanding education for students aged 3 – 18 years, and is part of the Nord Anglia Education global campus of 54 schools worldwide. We offer the English National Curriculum from EYFS to Year 11 and the IB Diploma Programme in Years 12 and 13.

  • high academic challenge: each individual child will be challenged and will excel, guided by highly qualified and experienced teachers.
  • amazing opportunities: from every day activities to once-in-a- lifetime experiences such as our Global Orchestra in New York or Service expeditions to Tanzania.
