As the school year draws to a close and our campus now falls silent, it’s time to acknowledge the efforts of those who make everything possible behind the scenes. Our dedicated facilities team, security personnel, maintenance and cleaning teams are the champions who will be working tirelessly this summer to ensure our school is in perfect shape.

The team will be hard at work within our school - creating new learning areas and upgrading playgrounds to setting up a brand-new Sixth Form centre, their commitment and hard work will set the stage for an amazing new academic year ahead.

Here’s to our unsung heroes who make it all happen! 👏

It`s our one year anniversary! Today, we celebrate 365 days of being part of the Nord Anglia family of schools - and what an adventure it has been so far..

From Houston to MIT in Boston, Vietnam, Tanzania, and beyond, we`ve embraced a wealth of local and international opportunities for our students and staff. Being part of the Nord Anglia Global Campus initiative has empowered our community to collaborate globally, share ideas, and enhance our sense of global citizenship and changemaking.

Our teaching and support teams have benefited greatly from personal development and training opportunities, connecting and collaborating with colleagues across the GCC region and beyond.

As we continue to uncover the benefits of being part of this global group, we`re excited about the journey ahead and the opportunities it will bring.
