British College in Abu Dhabi (BCAD), British School in Abu Dhabi (BSAD) might refer to one of the following schools

We have only included in this list the names of the best British curriculum schools in Abu Dhabi which have a British system and environment similar to private British curriculum schools in the UK (called public schools in the UK) which are thought of as at least "good schools" somehow. BISAD doesn't quite fit the criteria but is sort of near enough if you don't stand too close, and squint your eyes a bit.

A number of UK based schools (which of course think they are the best British schools around) have opened or are planning to open a branch in Abu Dhabi. It seems to be a bit random whether the Abu Dhabi and UAE campus versions have as good a reputation as the UK versions. A more cynical perspective is that a group in the UAE pays the UK school to use their name but then has little more to do with the UK institute. And if backed up by a bit of marketing and some nice pictures, some parents think they are registering their children for a branch of a reputable school in the UAE, which turns out to be something less desirable in reality.

Many other schools in Abu Dhabi, and the UAE, have en element of Britishness about them for example the name ("British", "English", "Cambridge", "Westminster", "Winchester", etc), curriculum, marketing, website images, etc but are only vaguely British or not at all British (some "English" schools are Indian or Arab schools for example) in the way Brits might expect.
