Secondary Schools in Abu Dhabi - British School in Abu Dhabi

Secondary School

The Aspen Heights Secondary School (Key Stage 3) will open with Year 7 in the 2019/20 academic year, as we are growing the school by one additional year group per new academic year.

The ethos and high levels of pastoral care established in the primary school will 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.

Our secondary school teaching will provide challenge whilst enabling our students to see meaningful links in their learning.

We will teach the English National Curriculum, together with the Ministry of Education curricular requirements, and themes will include teaching in the following subjects.

  • Core Subjects: English, Maths, Science, Arabic, Islamic Studies, Social and Civics, Computing, Citizenship, and Personal, Social and Health Education (PHSE)
  • Foundation Subjects: History, Geography, Physical Education (including Swimming), Computing, and Modern Languages: French
  • Electives: Art & Design, Design Technology, Business Studies, Music, and Spanish

Following a broad provision in Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 students will have the option to select options for further study leading to GCSE/ IGCSE examinations.
