Working with communities to make a difference in peoples’ lives encourages our students to become responsible global citizens ready to make their mark on the world.

Amongst the programmes and activities designed to inspire social purpose is our partnership with UNICEF, which challenges students to address the Sustainable Development Goals while creating high-profile opportunities to speak to UN leaders about the world’s biggest issues.

Creativity and culture

Creative thinking is essential because it’s about being able to see ‘the art of the possible’. By fostering creativity, and an appreciation of culture, our teachers will help your child see the opportunities in front of them and find creative ways to overcome challenges.

We help our students discover their creative talents and grow in confidence while developing a love of music.


Our students begin by learning to play the keyboard and develop their musical skills and knowledge further by reading and notating, which helps them to identify and understand harmonies.

Hands-on experience also guides your child to an understanding of musical concepts and lets them explore the fundamentals of music from the earliest age. 


Your child will learn to move and find rhythm through our inspiring dance programme designed to develop their confidence.


Our students learn to express themselves through dance and become familiar with different rhythms and genres, guided by our world-leading teachers.  

Using dance as a practical and expressive artform, your child will develop a love of music and dance and see it as a creative outlet for expression that also improves their physical coordination and rhythm. 

Instilling lifelong confidence and poise, our students take centre stage in our world-leading drama programme.

Theatre encourages students to explore some of history’s finest playwrights, all while learning how to express their own creativity, improve their confidence, develop leadership skills, and work as a team. 

Thanks to our collaboration with The Juilliard School, drama students at Nord Anglia schools can develop a deep love of performance and public speaking, which will set them up for success throughout their lives.

Performing Arts with Juilliard

Apart from experiencing life-changing works of art, our students are inspired to be creative, to express themselves, and build confidence through a performing arts curriculum developed with one of the world’s leading conservatories.

We put the ‘A’ in STEAM so it stands for science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics because we understand the importance creativity plays in a child’s development, and which helps them succeed in all subjects.

Some schools place art and science worlds apart, but we believe creativity is crucial to all aspects of learning. When students are able to flex their creative muscles, they see improvements across every subject. To this end, we also have dedicated ‘makerspaces’ where your child can unleash their creativity through hands-on activities, such as with 3-D printers, building with LEGO, or creating videos with a green screen.

Diverse cultures
At our international schools, students develop a global worldview, make lifelong friends from around the world, and learn about the values and traditions of different cultures.

Diverse cultures

By being exposed to new ways of thinking and diverse cultures, our students are better equipped for success when graduating and starting careers in our interconnected, modern world. Nord Anglia students are given opportunities to travel abroad – such as through expeditions to Switzerland and Tanzania – connect with peers from different countries online and at regional events, and make a difference in their local communities through activities with UNICEF.


We create life-changing experiences for our students through our global collaborations with world-leading institutions and organisations.

They are given the chance to learn about global responsibility and sustainability, the power and fragility of nature, and the important role we all play in protecting the planet.

Regional expeditions
All our schools are located in regions featuring outstanding natural beauty, so our students can thrive on working and learning together in nature. This allows for unique bonding experiences that help broaden their minds and fuel their curiosity about nature, as well as local history and culture. 

Understanding and appreciating the power and beauty of our planet and the individual geography of these regions is part of the unique opportunity our schools provide.
