Welcome From The Principal

HomeWelcome From The Principal

Over the last 5 years, the school has grown and developed into an exciting and vibrant place to be. The community continues to grow and, throughout the week, the school now has a constant buzz. The different sounds that echo around the school: of music playing; students talking and laughing; parents chatting and teachers imparting their knowledge and wisdom in the classrooms, are wonderful to hear. The first year of a school is always special, but for me, it is the subsequent years when the school really grows and develops. As with a complex ecosystem, the connections between different parts of the school begin to fuse as students, parents, staff and the wider community share a multitude of interactions and experiences. Everyone knows each other, greetings are shared in the morning, farewells in the afternoon, smiles exchanged, shoulders are leant on, and friendships shared. The security, happiness and the North London Collegiate School ethos are all palpable.

The School has built a strong reputation for offering an inspirational and ambitious education to students in Dubai. The International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum and a North London Collegiate School ethos are aligned in many ways and the academic experience we offer provides an incredibly enriching and engaging environment for our students. Whether it is in the classroom, on the sports field or in the Performing Arts Centre we have high expectations and aspirations for all our students.

The School continued to achieve great success within the MYP and Diploma examinations in 2022. The School was named as the top performing IB school in the region with a Diploma average of 38.1 and an MYP average of 49. Many of our students have graduated to top universities around the world and continue the success that is shared by our family of schools.

We are very lucky to have a wonderful site with fantastic facilities. This, combined with the outstanding pastoral care and focus on the extra-curricular life of the school, continues to ensure that the students enjoy coming to school every day and have every opportunity in fulfilling their potential and aiming for top universities around the world.

I look forward to meeting many of you who take the next step in coming to visit us.
