My child doesn’t speak English, can I apply to Al Nahda National Schools

The primary language of instruction at ANNS is English. We will consider those students who are not proficient in English if we believe that, they will be able to develop proficiency in academic English sufficient to enter the school.

Students who require additional support will work with our English Language Specialists individually and in small groups until they are fully able to mainstream into the classroom. Normally, Grade 6 is the last year to which a beginner English Learner is admitted to the School.


It is not our policy to have a child repeat a grade because of their English level, as this will quickly improve and the child should be placed in the correct grade for social and emotional reasons as well as academic.

My child is on waiting list, when will I hear back?

You will only hear back if and when a seat becomes available. We usually begin to inform families of openings between March and June when we conduct the re-registration of our current students, but will still contact you if there are last-minute openings. The admission team is able to give you an update on your application at any time.


Our waiting lists stay active until ADEK closes the transfer date between schools in Abu Dhabi. Transfers from outside the emirate and overseas are possible until the end of Term 2 as long as the required documentation is provided prior to the start of Term 3.
