Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

North London Collegiate School Dubai is a branch of the highly successful North London Collegiate School, based in London, UK. The London school is renowned for its academic results, having consistently achieved the best IB Diploma results in the UK for the past 12 years, and remaining within the top 5 schools in the country for GCSE and A-Level results over the past 15 years – frequently first.

Teaching approach of the school

Ethos at NLCS Dubai mirrors that of NLCS (UK). NLCS believes that there should be no ceilings to what a student can achieve. NLCA never ‘labels’ a student and nobody is ever written off. NLCS seeks passionate subject teachers, who are able to light the flame of enthusiasm in every student and who believe in pastoral care that values and supports all students – ‘everyone matters’.
