Rigorously selective (although it is not just about the academics), Nord Anglia International School Dubai is swiftly establishing its reputation as a high performing school within the UAE premier league of elite schools.
Currently offering education to Year 10, Nord Anglia is being considered for International Baccalaureate status, a fast-track application given the schools late establishment in 2014. Given Nord Anglia success across the group, the outlook for current and future students is promising. Around one in five Nord Anglia students win places at the world’s top 30 universities; there is a history of students receiving full marks on their IB diploma; and around 15% of all Nord Anglia Education students who sat the IB Diploma have historically achieved a score of around 40 or above, more than double the global average.
In September 2016 the school will launch a ground-breaking performing arts education programme, a first in the UAE, developed in conjunction with internationally renowned Juilliard. The aim is to provide all students, aged 3 to 18 years, access to a world class arts education, balancing and matching the rigour and excellence of its academic programmes and meeting the needs of the gifted child in music, dance and drama.
60% of students are British and the broader student body is drawn from 72 other nationalities; Italian, French, German and Australian children also have strong representation.
Facilities are targeted to meet or exceed those of Dubai’s elite schools, designed ground up to offer a “nurturing environment for students, as well as the next generation of athletes, statesmen, thespians and musicians.” To this end there are impressive open plan art studios, craft centres, a cleverly designed theatre space, urban classroom areas, a state-of-the-art auditorium, three refectories and extensive outdoor sports facilities including a swimming pool.
