A very warm welcome to Pearl British Academy – the best British primary school in Abu Dhabi.

Our vibrant school is proud of its family feel where our children are at the very heart of everything we do. It is somewhere where everyone has a place and belongs, somewhere where we work together, in partnership, to ‘nurture adaptable, creative future leaders in our high performing learning community’. As an inclusive British primary school located in the heart of Abu Dhabi, our curriculum and wide-ranging extra- curricular activities are firmly grounded in our school Values of Empathy, Agility and Hard Work. We highly value collaboration and social responsibility; creativity and risk-taking; practice and resilience. 

At Pearl British Academy, individuality is of the essence, diversity enriches and the ability to think creatively is our future. We recognise that the skills needed in life are ever-changing and we are proud to work with our students to fill their tool-box of skills with experiences and opportunities to enable them to realise their potential both academically and as an individual.

With Pearl British Academy being accredited and awarded the status of a High Performance Learning School, we develop learning through creative learning opportunities actively teaching children through the identified cognitive domains and values needed for lifelong success. We have a growth mindset at Pearl British Academy; we believe that we can develop through dedication and hard work - brains and talent are just the starting point!
