About the School
This school is a mixed primary and girls-only secondary school located near the Sea Palace, in Abu Dhabi, which its inaugural intake of students was in August 2016.
The mixed primary school is the new site for the students currently attending, which was recently rated “Outstanding” by Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC). The primary school endeavours to enable pupils to reach their full potential and develop them into motivated, ambitious and confident lifelong learners. Male students attending the primary school will receive automatic placement to another school in the academy when they progress to secondary school.
The girls-only secondary school is an exciting first for the group. In recent years, studies have highlighted the benefits of all-girls education that has resonated with educators from all backgrounds. Their aim is to provide girls with an education based on best-in-class teaching methods, a range of extra-curricular activities and the promotion of leadership skills, in order to prepare them to be effective contributors and confident leaders of the future.
In years 12 and 13, the school offers two pathways: British A-Levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Students who remain on the English Curriculum pathway end their secondary school with British A-Levels, the celebrated school-leaving qualification. Students who chose the IB will complete their studies with the prestigious IB Diploma, which is accepted in Britain and across the globe.
Facilities at the school are state-of-the-art and the school has been designed to meet the needs of 21st century learners. These facilities include an 1000-seat auditorium, extensive music, drama and art facilities, research laboratory, graphic design area, music recording studio and recital hall. Sports facilities include a multi-purpose sports hall, dance studio, 25m swimming pool, basketball and netball courts, two astro-turf playing fields and soft playing areas. There are also separate and secure covered play areas for each of the different school stages and a senior school centre.
For students, support for learning will come from a well-equipped library, seminar rooms for small group teaching and video conference suites to facilitate links with other schools and education institutions across the world.
