The school aims to provide learning opportunities that appropriately challenge every child, allowing them to happily learn in a safe and caring environment. Their well-qualified staff endeavours to utilise the best pedagogical practices to provide students with a wide variety of opportunities for success both inside and outside the classroom.

1.) Locally Educated, Globally Minded

Bateen World Academy's local and global community, facilities, and curricula enables their community to have the values of home. They nurture their students to become leaders, sustainability ambassadors, communicators, and overall - become global citizens.

2.) Academic Excellence

The students’ examination results exceed the global average point score achieved by students worldwide. Bateen World Academy students go on to attend the most prestigious universities in the world, such as Oxford, University College London, UCLA, University of Toronto, and more.

At I/GCSE level (Years 10 & 11), the students achieve some of the very top grades awarded by examination boards across the world.

The school's approach to teaching received an 'Outstanding' (rated by ADEK in two consecutive inspection reports) well-rounded education, allowing students to achieve their very best, while feeling nurtured and supported.

3.) A School That is Designed for the Future

Bateen World Academy's bespoke design hubs meet the needs of future proofed learners. From FS2 to Year 13, students can access the very latest technology and open space to discover their unique skills thanks to the school's extensive specialised learning spaces.

What is Bateen World Academy's Curriculum?

The curriculum at Bateen World Academy has been based on an adapted English National Curriculum.

It progresses through the inquiry-led International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP) in Primary School, into the challenging yet rewarding I/GCSE in Middle School, and culminates with the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) in Post-16 study, developing students physically, intellectually, emotionally, and ethically.

Students at Bateen World Academy consistently achieve above world average points when they achieve their full IB DP.

The combination of both curriculums gives a complete learning experience to the child. Children do not only learn in formal ‘lessons’ or in the activities prepared by the teachers; significant emphasis is given to the attitudes and values promoted within the school. Often referred to as "the hidden curriculum", the development of Bateen World Academy students’ personal, social, health and moral education is fundamental to supporting the growth of the ‘whole child’.

What Are the Facilities Like?

Bateen World Academy, located at the heart of Abu Dhabi city, is one of the most spectacular looking schools in the world.

The school has state of the art, modern facilities to support learning including an indoor swimming pool, full size astroturf football pitch, ICT labs, design hubs, art and ceramics rooms, dance and drama studios, science laboratories, and many more specialist learning areas.
