The British International School of Abu Dhabi
ADEC 2015/16 Rating: Very Good
Curriculum: British
Ages:3 to 18 years
Price Range: AED 47,900 to 63,200 AED
What they say: “The overall performance of the British School of Abu Dhabi is very good. Key strengths are the secure personal and social development made by students that is very effectively nurtured by the quality of protection, care, support and guidance. Students demonstrate improving rates of progress: the majority of students attain levels that are above curriculum standards in Islamic education, English, mathematics, science and other subjects. This represents very good progress from students’ starting points. Attainment is weaker in Arabic and social studies in Key Stages 3 to 5.
The quality of teaching and use of assessment are generally very good and have influenced the improving rates of progress in all subjects. Curriculum planning, adaptation and implementation are highly effective and meet the learning needs of most students, particularly those with special educational needs (SEN). Staff, parents and students are strongly supportive of the school’s aims and the clear strategic direction and educational leadership provided by the principal.”

    Dear Which,
    Repton School on Reem Island is missing from your report. After last inspection it has been rated Band A, very good in all categories. Can you please have this list updated at your earliest convenience.

      Thanks Kerry… unfortunately this report has not yet been published by ADEC, and has not been sent to us. At the moment therefore we cannot yet update the list. We look forward to being able to do so 🙂
