The school is situated on the outskirts of Mussafah. It is a British curriculum which intakes children from kindergarten age to A level students. The staff and headmaster are incredibly friendly and helpful and willing to talk to you about your childs progress or any problems they may be having. The school itself offers and excellent range of subjects and sports. My son turned up 3 months into his A level courses which worried the school somewhat as they use a different examining board but they strived to get him up to speed with the topics with outside tuition and he is now studying law at Birmingham University. My other two children strive in the school too and there are many nationalities that attend which has taught them so much about other cultures which has been invaluable to their outlook and understanding in life.
The school fees are one of the lowest in Abu Dhabi and they offer a bus service which collects from all over Abu Dhabi from the Corniche to the Khalifa Cities. All buses are fitted with cctv as is the school which is reassuring.
Although the school is segregated I actually think this is a good idea as it makes the students focus on their studies.
The other thing which is an asset to the school is that they have set up an on line system for parents to check what homework the children have been given and what results they have got in test (which your little darlings sometimes fail to tell you!!!!)
I know when moving to the UAE finding a school is hard work but I cannot recommend The Cambridge High School highly enough, from student welfare to results it is faultless.
Anyone wishing to reserve a place in the school can find the online submission and further information on the school on their website
