Message from Principal


I am very excited to be joining Al Basma at such a critical stage in the school’s development and I relish the opportunity to continue to move the school towards an ADEC Band A inspection rating. I am very lucky to have inherited a strong team which has been supplemented with excellent and experienced teachers recruited from the UAE, UK and beyond. We are fortunate to have been able to strengthen the classroom support team by recruiting will-qualified Teaching Assistants to support the teachers in KG1 and KG2.

Having worked at two outstanding schools in the UK for 12 years, I was appointed Vice Principal with Belvedere British School (Musaffah) in September 2013. Throughout my career, I have very high expectations of both my staff and students.
