Nord Anglia Education’s global family of international schools provides outstanding education to over 50,000 students from preschool through to the end of secondary education at 46 locations in 26 countries.

Nord Anglia International School Dubai is an academically selective British international school following the highest standards of UK independent education for students aged three years to 18 years. At NAS Dubai, values such as respect, good manners and social confidence are woven into the fabric of our school. Families, teachers and students are supportive of these values and are active members of our community.

Our exceptional, well-qualified teachers lead classes with no more than 20 students and provide an inspiring environment to encourage and teach children to become ambitious learners while studying an internationally enriched British curriculum. Our enhanced language curriculum in Mandarin, French, German, Spanish and Arabic will facilitate expat children in becoming a truly global citizen. 

All over the world, our Global Campus helps expat children to explore the world and develop a truly international perspective through outstanding online, in school and worldwide experiences. Our Global Campus connects 50,000 Nord Anglia Education students around the world to collaborate, discuss and learn together every day.

Global Campus Online

Children discuss, collaborate and learn from their peers around the world in our vibrant online learning community. Through challenging activities, discussions and tailored resources, Global Campus Online enables your child to lead their own learning and develop transferable skills

Global Campus In School

In addition to the globally recognised curricula each NAE school provides, such as the English National Curriculum or the International Baccalaureate, our schools will expand students’ horizons with a global perspective. For example, we ensure we choose topics that will engage and enable our students to learn all about the world around them, making sure they benefit fully from their international experience.

Global Campus Worldwide

We have designed experiences to allow our students to explore the world and collaborate with their peers. For example, pupils can develop their passions through initiatives such as our Global Orchestra, which this year will be held in New York City.

What the school says

"We have a clear focus on high academic standards through our High Performance Learning agenda, which is based on the work of our Education Director, Professor Deborah Eyre of Oxford University.

We focus on good manners, social graces and respect. Sports, music and the arts are seen as integral, not add-ons to our work. Our students will be selected via a rigorous interview process.

We are always aware that each and every pupil is someone’s child."


Nord Anglia follows the English National Curriculum, which is enhanced to reflect both the school’s international setting and their high expectations for students. It offers a wide range of modern foreign languages including French, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic and German. 


Fees for the 2018/2019 school year range from AED 62,160 a year for FS1 to AED 94,000 for Year 13.  Fees can be paid annually or termly. There is also a non-refundable AED 525 application fee.

From the principal

“When we bring children into this world, we know that our first responsibility is to teach them to be kind and understanding; to be responsible, confident, brave and bold; to know when to lead and when to work with others; to aim high but show humility, integrity and respect.

We also have a responsibility to give them opportunities. These opportunities are unlocked through the provision of the best possible education in the best possible school; a school with a challenging and rigorous academic environment, which also stresses personal qualities. A school in which students are able to develop the tools that will serve them in later life.

As parents, we want them to make their mark on the world, and we want them to help make it better.

At the Nord Anglia International School Dubai we believe a school can play a crucial role in helping both those dreams become a reality. We will enable students to apply what they learn to a changing world full of possibilities. We will help your child to flourish.”

 – Mike Embley, Principal
