Welcome from the Principal

A warm welcome from our School Principal, Mr. Paul Crute.

The head, the heart and the hand!


Dear Parents,

A very warm welcome to Nord Anglia International School Dublin! My name is Paul Crute, and I am the Principal. 

One in three Nord Anglia school leavers progress to the top 100 universities in the world. NAIS Dublin is one of only 400 schools globally to offer all three of the International Baccalaureate curricula. These are world class programmes which demand distinctive, personalised teaching styles. They have huge international recognition and function as global passports for the internationally mobile. Tolerance, international-mindedness and respect for other worldviews and cultures are deeply embedded in each programme. The school thus educates the head, the heart and the hand. We expose our students to a school environment without cultural boundaries, to provide a highly transformational learning experience: which creates confidence, growth and ultimately, an enviable quality of outlook and demeanour. The very highest order skills of compassion, empathy (the head and the heart) and altruism (the hand!) are fostered and honed through a local, national and global service community service opportunities. Pupils are given a powerful understanding of the six pillars of sustained well-being espoused by Dr. Martin Seligman’s positive psychology ‘Flourish’ research.

Our leading edge Leopardstown campus is a dynamic and vibrant environment offering first-rate music, drama, culture and sporting activities. Above all, we have outstanding teachers, who do not simply impart an academic curriculum. We must not forget or underestimate that teachers also impart who they are, their mindset, outlook and quality of being. All teachers are impressively and exceptionally rounded internationalists who lead extra-curricular activities and are wholesome role models. As part of the Nord Anglia family, students benefit from the wonderful, bespoke collaborations we have with world-leading institutions such as Juilliard School, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and UNICEF, offering real-world experiences to develop their problem-solving skills.

International connectedness through Nord Anglia’s ‘Global Campus’ programme, affording all pupils access to and collaborations with peer classrooms in over 73 sister schools, is a distinctive feature of a Nord Anglia wall-less classroom!

Crucially, NAIS Dublin is also an integral part of the Irish community in Dublin and support staff and families who are seeking a diverse international experience within a local Irish context. NAIS Dublin embraces Irish culture and history throughout the school curriculum and the school is very focused on ensuring that it contributes to the continuing development and success of Dublin and Ireland. 

The school opened its doors to its founding families and students in September 2018. Please don't hesitate to contact us through our admissions enquiry form if you would like to speak to us about this captivating school. 

We welcome hearing from parents and others who want to be part of this visionary Irish project. 

Best regards,

Paul Crute
