NAS Dubai location and contact information
  • Location: Al Barsha South, off Hessa St on other side from Jumeirah Village Circle (JVC). No you can't walk across the road if you live in JVC. There is an access road now from Hessa St if driving towards the coast (or towards TECOM area). Also part of Arjan, Dubailand area (within Al Barsha South)?
  • Tel number +971-4-2199999 general enquiries (looks incorrect for Al Barsha location but is valid), +971-4-2199913 or +971-4-2199915 for admissions information.
  • Email address admissions@nasdubai.ae.
  • Website at www.nordangliaeducation.com/our-schools/dubai. Domain www.nasdubai.ae forwards to NAS Dubai website.
  • Website domain was www.nainternationalschool.ae (not available now). Others tried: www.naisd.ae (not available), www.naisd.com (not available), ww.nasdubai.com (spam), ww.nasdubai.ae.
  • FB page facebook.com/nainternationalschooldubai.

23 March 2016
  • Website domain, fees, contacts, updated. Tel number +971-4-3614330 removed from table, is for an unrelated company in Dubai? Fax number +971-4-3618700 also removed. Updated fax number not provided.
  • Email address updated to admissions@nasdubai.ae, previous admissions@nainternationalschool.ae removed from table, might not be valid since website www.nainternationalschool.ae returns an error.
28 March 2014 review
  • Fee range according to KHDA information Mar 2014 is AED 60,000-90,000. Other sources also give figures in a similar range but NAIS information still says fees are as given previously. KHDA range might be maximum permitted fees, and include fees for Years 9-13?
  • KHDA information also says school capacity is 2,000 students, previous NAIS information was 1,500 places.
  • Location in Al Barsha South, in the middle of the desert. Consider a helicopter or a Hummer if you want to take your children to NAIS. Or maybe they'll offer a 4wd bus service.
  • Fax number, postal address, fee schedule, teacher pay scale and benefits package, not supplied.
25 February 2014 review
  • Founder's Fees (discounted) are AED 49,400 for FS1-2, AED 59,500 for Years 1-2, AED 66,500 Years 3-6, AED 75,000 Years 7-8.
  • Normal fees are AED 52,000 FS1-2, AED 65,000 Years 1-2, AED 70,000 Years 3-6, AED 75,000 Years 7-8.
  • Postal address given as PO Box 502325 Dubai (forum topic), but according to the UAE Yellow Pages this address is for Astrium Services Business Communications or Vizada Middle East in Dubai Internet City (DIC).
15 November 2013 review
  • Nord Anglia School looks likely to be a selective entry, upmarket British curriculum international school in Dubai, similar to the one in Abu Dhabi, probably with fee structure to match. The Nord Anglia School in Abu Dhabi (British International School, established 2009) charges about AED 47,000 to 62,000 per year.
  • Landline number not available yet. Contact mobile tel +971-56-953 1503 and email sally.embley@nordanglia.com for admissions, registrations, and general enquiries. School levels offered KG to Grade 8 approximately (3-13 years old mentioned on NA website)?
  • Principal Mike Embley was previously head of the British School of Beijing.
  • Not clear which year levels the school will operate at launch, information not yet supplied about which qualifications offered at senior levels - GCSE, IGCSE, A-Levels, IB?
  • Unknown if name will remain as Nord Anglia International School (NAIS) or change to British International School of Dubai (BISD).
  • Official school website domain forwards to school information on Nord Anglia website.


Last update 24 March 2016
General comments - might not apply to Nord Anglia International School Dubai
  • Many popular schools are full for 2018-2019. New schools in Dubai might have places.
  • Allow extra for books, extra-curricular activities, uniforms, trips, etc if not included in school fees.
