What is the Nord Anglia Virtual School Experience?
At NAS Dubai we take pride in delivering an outstanding education to every student, tailored to their individual learning needs and inspired by the global best practice (Nord Anglia Education
) from across our family of Nord Anglia schools.
No matter where your family is in the world, we can still welcome your child into their classroom through our virtual school.
Through safe and secure platforms, our virtual school will inspire your child with innovative lessons, unique learning opportunities and high-quality teaching as part of our blended learning approach.
Your child will:
Participate in lessons in real-time with their world-class teachers wherever possible
Receive and submit assignments
Collaborate with their peers
Develop essential skills independently
Be recognised for their outstanding work
Bringing creative and inspiring lessons to your child through our virtual school, our blended learning approach is designed to ensure that your child receives the full curriculum of education, whilst staying healthy and safe at home.
Our global team of world-class teachers have all the tools they need to share best practice and ideas for optimising your child’s personalised learning. Whether it is daily movement challenges set by some of our PE teachers or lateral thinking exercises to help keep students engaged, being part of NAS Dubai means that your child will benefit from the creativity and commitment of 9,000 talented teachers worldwide.
Alongside academic excellence, your child’s wellbeing is always at the heart of everything we do. Our virtual school has been designed to meet every student’s social, emotional, creative, physical and cultural needs.
Our Virtual School Experience has two key aspects:
Striking the right balance between on and offline learning time allows your child to make the most of personalised learning from home, no matter what year group they are in.
When it comes to our youngest minds, our Early Years virtual school combines learning techniques to ensure that your child receives a truly engaging educational experience. From developing important literacy skills through story time to refining motor skills with creative play, our virtual school delivers the same high-quality lessons your child receives in the classroom.
For our Primary students, their virtual school experience builds on the foundations started in early years, with a continued focus on cognitive development and preparing them for the next steps in their education.
From learning new skills to refining existing knowledge, working towards exams and preparing for exciting next steps, our Secondary school students benefit from a Virtual School Experience designed to give them the best preparation for the future. If your child is in an examination class, we make sure that our teachers also give personalised tutorial support and, where necessary, individualised programmes to maximise their opportunities for success.

Our students of all ages can also access Global Campus, Nord Anglia’s bespoke online platform, which widens their learning experience beyond the classroom.
Students across the world can come together to support, learn and develop each other from their homes. Whether it is collaborating remotely to create solutions to UNICEF’s Sustainable Development Goals, or engaging with experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and The Juilliard School
, NAS Dubai students can take part in unique activities and develop their problem-solving skills.
Global Campus also sets students a series of mini personal challenges that they can do, at any time, to demonstrate their skills to their friends around the globe. Challenges could be anything from entering Nord Anglia’s annual global art competition, to learning a new language, or virtually taking on Mount Kilimanjaro in the Virtual Kili Climb challenge.
