Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

At Belvedere British School we offer a broad, distinctive academic education for both boys and girls of 4 to 16 years of age. We pride ourselves on our long standing reputation for excellent results and high quality pastoral care for all students. The innovative and enriched curriculum reflects our vision and ethos and meets the needs and aspirations of students. These, together with our specialism in science, offer a unique education experience for young people in Abu Dhabi and beyond.

Teaching approach of the school

At BBS, we aim to develop well-educated, well-rounded and caring young men and women who will play a significant role in society. They will be good team members as well as leaders; above all, they will seek to be a positive influence wherever they find themselves. We have high expectations of our children and we expect them to share these expectations.

Our children are all academically able and we seek to nurture in them a spirit of inquiry and curiosity which will see them explore their chosen interests, whatever these might be. They are guided by committed, enthusiastic and inspiring teachers who have strong subject specialist knowledge – a key factor in developing students to their fullest extent.

Alongside this academic rigour, we offer an abundance of other opportunities. Whether it is on the stage, in the hall, on the sports field or working in the community, our children have the chance to grow in areas outside of the classroom.

At the same time, this is a warm, caring community where people are prepared to go the extra mile to help one another. I believe that our school is a happy, vibrant place, full of energy and enthusiasm. It is filled with aspiring and ambitious people who want to make the most of themselves and help those around them do the same.
