Aine McGlue

Deputy Head of Secondary

Mrs. McGlue joined the British International School Abu Dhabi, in August 2016 and has held several leadership roles including Head of Inclusion, Assistant Headteacher and Deputy Head of Secondary. Before joining BIS Abu Dhabi, Mrs. McGlue was Assistant Principal at a secondary school in the UK and supported the development of an Inclusion strategy across a number of schools in the UK’s largest multi-academy trust.

Mrs. McGlue has experience leading a wide range of school priorities including, Data and Intervention, Inclusion and Wellbeing and Child Protection and Safeguarding.

Schools are packed full of creativity, diversity, expertise, nurture and fun and this is certainly true of BIS Abu Dhabi. It is a genuine privilege and joy to be a part of our school community. I believe that creating a positive school culture and environment, whereby our students feel safe, connected and respected is paramount to their personal and academic success. With the right level of personalised support every child can succeed and develop a life-long love of learning whilst developing the confidence to be the change makers of the future.

My personal life is very busy as my husband and I have 3 young children who are full of character and energy! We are extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to bring them to the UAE, they have already had so many wonderful opportunities and experiences in this amazing country and we look forward to many more experiences in the years to come.
