The International Schools Partnership is delighted to announce the opening of Aspen Heights British School in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Located in the Al-Bahya area near Yas Island on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi, Aspen Heights combines the best practice of the British National Curriculum with the requirements of the Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) using environmental themes to enhance the curriculum delivery. The school opened its doors on 10th September 2017 to children from Foundation Stage 1 to Year 6.
Aspen Heights aims to develop awareness of environmental sustainability and global responsibility in all aspects of learning, and to nurture eco-minded citizens who become productive and responsible stewards of our world recognising the finite nature of the earth’s natural resources. The school’s learning environment will focus on enquiry based and collaborative learning, developing children’s independence and problem-solving skills. Students will study Maths, Science and English as core subjects and 8 foundation subjects.

• science laboratories
• IT rooms
• design and technology areas

Steve Brown, Group Managing Director of International Schools Partnership, comments: “We are very pleased to be opening our second school in Abu Dhabi. The UAE is a solid and growing market for education and presents good opportunities for operators with well-run schools. We believe our strong focus on individualized learning combined with a clearly defined science and environmental theme will present a compelling offering for parents and help the school to successfully differentiate itself from the competition.”
