Aspen Heights British School in Abu Dhabi embraces the individuality of every learner. We support student learning through a robust, student-focused curriculum, and enriching after-school programs, and focus relentlessly on each child’s ability to amaze.
Learning is about getting better, academically, socially and emotionally. Amazing Learning happens when students surprise themselves by getting better to a level beyond which they thought possible. Whether through mentoring, enrichment or personalised study, Aspen Heights British School recognises and nurtures each student’s gifts and talents so that they amaze themselves and inspire others.
The ethos and high levels of pastoral care established in the primary school follow through to the secondary school, with young people’s ability to develop resilience, approach challenges positively, and work collaboratively for the good of the whole community being central to their learning.
We teach the English National Curriculum, together with the Ministry of Education curricular requirements, and a thematic approach is used across the subjects. Following a broad provision in Years 7 to 9 (Key Stage 3), Years 10 and 11 (Key Stage 4) students will be able to select options for further study leading to GCSE/ IGCSE examinations.
ASPEN HEIGHTS BRITISH SCHOOL TAKES MULTICULTURALISM TO HEART. Cross-cultural tolerance, understanding and diplomacy are just as important for our future leaders as any other classroom subject. The International Schools Partnership’s Future Global Leaders Conference offers students aged 13-17 years the opportunity to come together to debate some of our society’s most pressing issues. The conference is designed to help students improve their debating and research skills, as well develop their leadership qualities and public speaking confidence. Students are required to ‘think on their feet’ and to prepare and argue on behalf of their respective countries about real international issues.
Secondary pupils at Aspen Heights British School have a unique opportunity to learn all about a sustainable future. They all have access to our bespoke hydroponics greenhouse, whereby they learn all about hydroponics as a process and how it is used in the UAE. They are encouraged to develop their hydroponics skills and every single secondary pupil grows a fruit, vegetable or herb using this technique.

At first I was concerned as Aspen was a brand new school, but our worries have disappeared! The school is very good- it is very organised in the areas of management, education and in the relationship between teachers and parents. They are very approachable and encourage families to be involved in activities. Since my son entered Aspen I have noticed very good progress. I am so happy I chose Aspen Heights for my son.
Parent of Mohamed, a Year 1 student at Aspen
My daughter has been at Aspen Heights since the school opened in September 2017. She absolutely loves her school, her friends and her teachers, and her confidence has grown so much. I love that the children get individual attention, and that the Principal knows the name of each child in her school. I can highly recommend Aspen Heights to other parents.
