Students at Nord Anglia International School Dubai (NAS Dubai) part of the global Nord Anglia Education family of schools, are celebrating today after receiving their long-awaited IGCSE results earlier this week.
Our students’ incredible achievements have created an amazing atmosphere all across our school as we celebrate their successes.
Matthew Farthing Principal at NAS Dubai comments, “Following on from our distinguished IB results, our Year 11 students have shown what they can do at IGCSE.
With an overall pass rate of 98% and 66% gaining A* and A with seven, eight and nine points, we are confident that this is a class to watch out for. Mixing talent and hard work in roughly equal parts throughout, this is very well done indeed.”
Liam Cullinan Head of Secondary comments “I am delighted with the achievements of the students this year with 75% of our students performing above their CAT scores.
A key area to celebrate is our continuous improvement at the top end with 41% of grades at 9 or 8. I am very proud of the students and I would like to thank them, as well as staff and parents for their continued support.
This is a true reflection of the amazing place that NAS Dubai is and its dedication to everyone succeeding.”

2019 IB Diploma Graduate Mhairi Winfield 🎓🙌🏻 Mhairi scored an excellent 38 points in her IB diploma and has secured a place at York University to study History. A true historian at heart Mhairi, chose history as her area of research for her extended essay, with the title ‘How far was Benjamin Franklin inspired by European Enlightenment Ideals’. She worked very hard on the CAS element of the IB diploma programme; she used her creative side to support the school production of Grease by helping with the set design, developed her golfing skills and took part in the Dubai Cares walk for Education. Mhairi has been an excellent role model and educator to our younger students; she set up and ran a web development CCA to inspire the younger students of NAS to code and creatively make a website/blog that will inspire them to continue with their passion. One of Mhairi’s best moments was seen in the kindness and guidance she showed to some of our younger students in her role as student mentor. Mhairi ‘s mature and calming manner will be very much missed around the Sixth Form area. We are very much looking forward to hearing about Mhairi’s successes at York. #nasdubai #nasdubaigraduates #nordangliaeducation #BecomeMoreNASDubai #BeMoreNASDubai #MoreThanASchool
