Al Yasmina is part of the Aldar Academies group of schools, a company founded to provide quality education solutions to Abu Dhabi’s rapidly expanding population. The group’s schools are popular with expat parents and are developing an excellent reputation within the local community. Al Yasmina is one of the oldest of the group’s six schools in Abu Dhabi and surrounds, having opened in September 2008. A large school with about 1,600 students from the Foundation Stage through to Year 13, here pupils avoid the disruption they might have experienced moving between smaller schools. All teaching staff are qualified in the British Education system, are highly experienced and have a proven track record in delivering high quality education. The school is Band A rated by ADEC

From the head teacher

"In some ways I have the easiest job in the world. Each day, I am amazed at the achievements of our students who have found they are capable of much more than they first thought possible. We have an active and engaged parent community which enriches the life of the school for everyone’s benefit."
Mr Darren Gale, Principal 

Quotes from the parents

"I always knew that there was a lot going on in the school, but I had no idea of the breadth of activities until I read this newsletter. The school should be proud of its pupils and the range of opportunities it makes available to them. Well done."
