Primary International School in Abu Dhabi

Aspen Heights British School is a place where children have many opportunities to develop and thrive. Learning is not limited to the classroom, but can also take place outdoors or through an educational visit, or a community service project for example. Lessons are lively, fun and challenging and provide pupils with many opportunities to think critically and independently. Success in examinations follows naturally from this approach.

In the Primary years (Year 1-6) we broadly follow the National Curriculum for England, tailored to meet the needs of our international community. Students study three core subjects – Maths, Science and English – and eight foundation subjects.

In addition to the curriculum, our school values, ethos and teaching approaches encourage children to develop collaborative enquiry skills, and understand that they are important individuals who can make a positive difference to the lives of others. Our aim is to promote curiosity, to encourage students to ask questions, and to teach them to use their skills and knowledge confidently in real life situations.
