CBS fees discounted for students from Al Fajr International School, a villa school which closed in August 2014.

CBS also referred to as Creative Private School (CPS) by ADEC. CBS is not related to the International School of Creative Science in Sharjah (sometimes also referred to as the British Creative School or similar), or the Creative Scientific Private School in Abu Dhabi (which was closed or renamed anyway).

  • Jobs available for January 2015 start at CBS for some teachers and primary head. Email address for teaching vacancy applications is hr@cbsabudhabi.com. Overseas hires advertised offer shared accommodation, medical cover, return flights, 2 year contract. Teaching positions salary range AED 6k-10k, Head of Primary AED 13k monthly.
  • Some advertisements say "minimum 3 years of experience in a CBSE school is preferred" which sounds odd since CBSE is an Indian curriculum program not a British one. It might indicate that CBS has a large proportion of Indian students, or is an Indian school following a UK curriculum. But ...
  • ... CBS information indicates it will take students from Al Fajr International School, a villa school closed by ADEC, which was an English language school for mostly Arab students.
  • Additional email address cbsabudhabi@gmail.com. Additional tel number given as +971-6-5356000 (in job advertisements, is for Gulf Asian Indian School in Sharjah, another Pace Education school).
  • Tel number given as +971-2-552 3700 is also or was for Al Rakha Commercial Markets in Abu Dhabi.
