The Aquila School is a flagship for International Schools Partnership (ISP), a global family of almost 30 schools in 8 countries which puts the child’s learning at the centre of everything. When you join our school, you gain the experience of our colleagues in our sister schools, the highest caliber of ISP leaders who drive student development and school improvement, and student exchange opportunities as part of our enrichment program.






Global Family

ISP’s purpose:

To be an international schools group of quality and scale, recognized in local communities and across the education sector for amazing learning, ambition, and growth. Our principles emphasize and underpin how we do and what we do.

As part the ISP global community of schools we: 

  • Begin with our children and students: our students are at the heart of our business, and their success is our success.
  • Treat everyone with care and respect: we embrace similarities and differences and promote the well-being of each other.
  • Operate effectively: we focus on the things that will make the most difference.
  • Are financially responsible: we make financial choices carefully based on the needs of the students and our schools.
  • Learn continuously: getting better is what drives us.

You can find out more about the amazing learning taking place in our schools around the world on the ISP website. Read about the new Outstanding Ofsted rated school in the UK, about the amazing sports achievements of students in Qatar, the top listened to radio station made by students in Mexico, the Model United Nations events in Spain also attended by students from here in Dubai, or the successful opening in 2017 of Aspen Heights British School in Abu Dhabi.

We are delighted to be opening our flagship school in Dubai. The Aquila School will combine the best of STEM with the best of the Arts, offering each child the choice to explore and learn according to their strengths. We believe our emphasis on creativity in a STEAM setting will present a stimulating environment that will both excite students and help prepare them for successful careers as adults.

Steve Brown

Group Managing Director, ISP

I am especially excited about The Aquila School as I wrote the school plan as a freelancer in 2013. Aquila is very much my vision of how a school should be, incorporating everything I have learned and observed in my years teaching, leading and consulting. ISP successfully opened Aspen Heights British School in Abu Dhabi in 2017, so I know without a doubt that Aquila will also be a resounding success.
