Keith Miller

Yasmina British Academy – A British Primary and Secondary school in Abu Dhabi

Welcome to Yasmina British Academy. We are one of the few recognised outstanding schools in the UAE where our students’ attainment and progress, within all Year groups, are significantly above UK, UAE and global averages. The whole Academy community is very proud of its achievements to date and is looking forward to working in partnership to become a leading Academy of excellence within the region.

No matter of the age of the student, central to everything that we do at Yasmina British Academy is focused on the development of happy, confident, independent and flexible learners, who are fully prepared for advanced study and work within the ever changing demands of the 3rd Millennium. We genuinely care about all people within our Academy community.

We have the highest expectations of staff and the whole student body. Central to this vision is the drive and determination to ensure that all everybody is fully supported and maximises their potential and performance in all strands of school life.

At the heart of our entire academic, personal development and extra curricular programmes are the 3 key objectives of Aldar Education: Our Purpose – Empowering the next generation to shape our future, Our Promise – Delivering the highest standards of education and inspiring a love of learning and Our Values- Excellence, Creativity, Passion, Respect and Collaboration.

Through outstanding learning and teaching and the constant reinforcement of our Core objectives, we can fully prepare all our students for adult life, to enable them all to practice and develop leadership qualities, to be highly motivated, confident and creative independent learners and most importantly understand the value of being respectful and tolerant international citizens.

Highly effective home/school partnerships are central to everything we will do at Yasmina British Academy. We genuinely believe that keeping parents fully informed and engaged in their child’s education from a very early age will fully support and maximise academic and social development. A full programme of parental consultation evenings, open forums, parental engagement workshops, coffee mornings and our open door policy will ensure that the parental body is kept completely informed of all school developments and fully empowered to support their child though out all stages of their education.

I hope that you find browsing through our web site both useful and informative. However, the best way to make an informed decision is to visit us in person and experience the Academy in action. Please contact our admissions department to arrange a Tour of the Academy.

I look forward to meeting you in the near future.

We offer The English National Curriculum with a STEAM focus. STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.


Yasmina British Academy is an exciting, challenging and enjoyable place for all, where staff are dedicated to providing a stimulating environment where everyone feels valued and safe, ideas can flourish and students can realise their full potential. A love of learning, enquiry, independence, creativity, motivation and resilience are critical factors in our learning culture. We provide an enriching curriculum that encompasses both school and personal development and value the partnership between home and academy. We highly encourage all parents to take an active part in the education of their children. Together we can set challenges and our partners can join us when we ask how we can do it even better.
