Why Reach British School?

Reach British School is in the south of Abu Dhabi, teaching the National Curriculum for England to ages 3 to 16. The school now has over 1450 students from over 60 different nationalities. We currently teach FS1 to Year 11 (Pre-KG to Grade 10), with Year 12 (Grade 11) opening in September 2019.

Building started in September 2012, and the doors to the school first opened in September 2014 to over 200 children, which quickly grew to 686 by the end of the first term. In September 2015, we welcomed over 1,000 children and doubled our staff numbers. By September 2016, the school had grown again to over 1,200 students, and the campus and student body were a settled and welcoming environment to the new families that joined the school. With more capacity to grow in the Secondary School we will see our numbers grow again in September 2019, when we open Year 12 when students will complete their iGCSE exams.

We pride ourselves on our staff. All teachers are native English speakers, working alongside our specialist teachers who deliver the Ministry of Education’s Arabic, Islamic and Social Studies curriculum. Learning and teaching standards are constantly observed, and specialist consultants from our British owners, the International Schools Partnership, ensure we are constantly developing to give our students the best environment to develop academically as well as socially. Our Senior Leadership Team are mainly British, bringing years of experience from schools all over the world to our international school.

The environment is as important to learning as the faculty is. The school has light spacious classrooms for Primary and Secondary, and a separate specialised Early Years Foundation Stage building with its own indoor and outdoor play areas. A heated swimming pool offers weekly swimming lessons to Years 3 and above, while our library, ICT suites and art rooms give students a rounded education.

Science labs are available to our Secondary students , as well as a fantastic refurbished indoor multipurpose sports hall.

We look forward to welcoming you into our school community, where we help young people lay the foundations for life-long success. The British schools deliver tried and tested educational programs, leading students to enter renowned universities. Our joining the International Schools Partnership in early 2016 enabled us to join with likeminded schools internationally, and that brings a wealth of opportunity to the school.

Investing in children is the key to our success, and the future is bright for Reach British School.  We are looking forward to fulfilling and inspiring times ahead – come and join us on our journey.
