An inclusive learning community inspiring leading citizens of the world

Welcome from the Deputy Principal

Welcome to Al Yasmina School

Al Yasmina is a highly successful and over-subscribed international school. We are recognised as a “Band A” school by ADEC and an outstanding school by the BSME(2014). We are a high performing school which is successful both in the areas of academia ( 95% A-C at GCSE 2014 ) and providing a stimulating, safe environment for students to develop ( Outstanding Care Guidance and Support BSME, ADEC Inspections 2014.)

The school is committed to exacting high standards, to expecting excellence from all and to developing outstanding learning with staff and students. We are an ambitious and forward thinking institution where students’ success lies at the heart of everything we do. Al Yasmina Secondary School enjoys an enviable reputation for being a warm and welcoming school where genuinely every person matters.

We seek to be ambitious and to be bold for students’ futures. Seeing the rich potential in every young person and encouraging exceptional progress is at the centre of our approach. Recognising and developing students’ personal strengths and skills is very important to us – the quality of our pastoral care is extremely high. As a strongly inclusive school it is our belief that aspiration is for all.

We relish the opportunity and responsibility for driving student success forwards and we are very proud of all our young people’s achievements – attainment and progress at Al Yasmina Secondary School is consistently much higher than that found in most schools internationally. This is testament to our vision “An inclusive, learning community inspiring successful global citizens”

Al Yasmina Secondary School provides an inspirational climate for learning within a safe environment. Our facilities are quite simply amongst the very best in Abu Dhabi. Excellent leadership at all levels and a dedicated staff are securing key improvements on the journey towards a world class learning environment.

Visitors to our school, without exception, comment on its exceptionally strong ethos. They describe us as a true international learning community with everyone playing their PART and that we stand out as being very special. They say that the learning atmosphere is tangible from the moment you enter the school.

We would be delighted to welcome you to the school to find out more about our work and to see what makes Al Yasmina Secondary School such a vibrant place to learn.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I am sure you will find it interesting and informative and that it gives you a flavour of the work and ethos of our school.

The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.
