This makes NAS Dubai the third school in the emirate to offer both A-Level and IB qualifications, demonstrating the school’s commitment to enhancing its educational offering for Sixth Form students.

In September 2021, Nord Anglia International School Dubai will introduce 12 A-Level subjects including English language and literature, Maths, Biology, PE, Geography, Business Studies, Computer Studies, Chemistry, Drama, Art, Design Technology, Economics and Psychology.

A-Level students will also be able to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme and will complete the EPQ (Extended Project Qualification), which allows students the opportunity to develop their interests in a particular topic, experience or skill.

NAS Dubai Principal, Matthew Farthing, comments: “After just three years of graduating classes we are thrilled to introduce A-Levels to the students of NAS. Our students are very good at directing their own learning, and as a result, we have been approached by a number of them who want to study A-Levels and remain at NAS Dubai for Sixth Form. This addition to our education platform is a direct result of healthy, professional negotiation with our existing students.”

In the UAE IB Diploma 2020 results, NAS Dubai students were ranked as one of the highest. All students passed and achieved an impressive average point score of 39. In total, 40% of students achieved 40+ points, and the highest achievement for an individual student was 45 points, a perfect score.

The educational approach at NAS enables every student to reach high academic, personal, and social success levels.
