We all share a common ambition; that our children are safe, happy, challenged and inspired.  A very warm welcome, then, to a place where this all happens: Al Yasmina Academy.
 
Our family-like ethos is very special and this ensures children learn in a caring environment.  With our vision to be ‘an inclusive learning community inspiring leading citizens of the world’ we are rightly extremely proud of all that we have achieved, but our aim to be exceptional in all that we do is undiminished and this drives us forward in our quest to be truly world class.
 
Al Yasmina is a large academy with over 1800 students on roll covering the 3-18 age range. There are over 80 nationalities represented in our school and this offers a unique opportunity for our children to learn about different cultures and to forge friendships that will last forever.  Our vision is timeless but rooted in an ambition to ensure every child is the best they can be.  It is crucial we help our children learn how to face the challenges the 21st Century will bring.  
 
Our pastoral house system ensures we know our children as individuals and that we value the contribution each and every one of them makes to our learning community. We learn under our core values: Excellence, Creativity, Collaboration, Respect and Passion.  If you think about your best teacher at school, the teacher who inspired you, the chances are they too shared these values: uncompromising high standards, enthusiasm for their subject, an ability to bring out the best in you and to help you believe you could accomplish anything.  
 
In 2017 Al Yasmina Academy was awarded 1st place in Abu Dhabi for Maths and Science results and it is this achievement we aim to build on with our diverse and challenging curriculum, wide range of extra-curricular activities and student leadership opportunities in the coming years.

Professor John Hattie’s Visible Learning research tells us that the expectation students have of themselves has one of the highest effects on student achievement, whatever the subject.  At Al Yasmina Academy, our Academy of Excellence fosters an ethos that it is ‘cool to be clever’ and it is through initiatives like this and the plethora of opportunities it provides that students gain a deeper understanding of the world around them.

Al Yasmina Academy is an exceptional learning community and students from share a love of learning, contribute to exemplary academic standards, develop wider leadership skills and flourish into leading citizens of the world.

This is what we strive to achieve at Al Yasmina Academy so that we really do help children to shape our future!
