Established as a not-for-profit school closely associated with the British Embassy on land generously donated by the then Ruler of Abu Dhabi, His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and sponsored since 1980 by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of the UAE, The British School Al Khubairat has a long tradition of success. Moving towards its 50th anniversary in 2017, it is regarded as a leading international school both within the Middle East and internationally. BSAK provides an outstanding holistic education for every student. The academic record places the school in the top 100 schools in the UK, while its extra-curricular programme offers students the opportunity to perform at the highest level in music, drama and sport. BSAK is superbly housed in its purpose built facility and regularly undergoes both local and British inspections.
